2005 Scion xA 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 4A)


Rides like a buggy, run over a toothpick and you'll feel it. Quick and nimble on dry pavement, terrible in snow. Bought with 32k miles and replaced AC at 38K for $600 and new battery at 40K but it has never left me stranded. It's a local driver that's not meant for the highway. Get about 25 MPG local and I beat the crap out of it and it just keeps going.

Best Features

Gauges in middle if dashboard help keep your eyes on the road. Extremely nimble.

Worst Features

Improve the suspension.
