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


Drove the xA as a test drive for
several hours. Fit and finish is
superb, and acceleration is decent.
Great city car with good handling
(comparing to my RX300). However, my
test car has a very rough idle. It
trembles at the stop light all the
time. Brakes are very mushy and have
little feedback. I still don't like
gauges at the center. I want them at
the driver side in front of me!

Best Features

Fuel economy, tight handling, fit and build quality.

Worst Features

Change location of guages, fit the idle, have an upgrade engine choice (like the 1.8)
