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


Purchased 2 weeks ago with 16.5 k miles. The first 2 days the ride was hard; lowered the tire pressure to 29 and it improved. Love sitting up high; I have a bad back and this car sits like a small SUV. Very nimble and a great grocery getter. It is O.K. on the highway for perhaps a half day ride; it isn't a cross country vehicle. In town it is delightful if a bit stiff. It does not like pavement imperfections. I expect to keep it for many years. Everyone says it is cute. Good car for 1-2 people; the back seat is small. Good legroom up front. Easy to park. Oh, I am six feet, 200 pounds, and have gray hair.

Best Features

High seats. Legroom. Nimble. Love the hatch. Attractive small package.

Worst Features

The replacement, the XD has less legroom and is not nearly as good looking. It does have more horsepower.

I agree with you. Great little car and it feels like a small SUV.
