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


I've owned this almost new car for just a couple of days. It has only 16,500 miles, so it was a peach of a used car purchase. Love the high seats and the hatch. Had I driven it longer on the test drive, I might have had second thoughts; the ride is ultra firm. One feels ever road imperfection and Michigan roads are very poor. This car was marketed to youth, but I'm AARP material. It should be a great grocery getter, but I don't think I'd like to take a long trip due to the harsh ride. Perhaps softer tires would help? I'll report back after I've logged more miles.

Best Features

Hatch. High seats. Easy to park.

Worst Features

Softer suspension.
