2005 Scion xA 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5M)


The Scion xA delivers good fuel economy, decent power, and has good features. Its road noise is a bit bothersome, as are a few rattling noises from the windows and dashboard. After 1.5 years of use, I have made no trips to the dealer except for maintenance. The turning radius is a bit large for so small a car, which is good for safety but bad for tight city driving. It handles wind, bad weather and city speeds well. It delivers okay performance on the freeway if you're not used to driving muscle cars.

Best Features

The gas mileage, size, and dependability.

Worst Features

Add VSC, reduce road and interior noise, and give it a tighter turning radius.
