2006 Scion xA 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 4A)


Review

My sister had this car for 4 years before she moved to Florida, i was devastated when she took her car with her. When i drove it gas was 1.68 in 2006 (detroit area michigan), so i would put 5 in it and drive forever with friends and go see the area. i was only 17 at the time but it was AWESOME. The only complaint is that its TERRIBLE in the snow.

2006 Scion xA 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This has been the BEST car I've owned. Yes, it's little. Yes, it's basic. But if you want something that is awesome on gas mileage--39-40 mpg mixed and extremely reliable, this is your car. I have put over 86,000 on my XA w/o any problems. It handles great in the snow w/ decent tires, you can park anywhere and it always started--even when it dipped around 30 below.


Best Features

gas mileage


Worst Features

cruise control

2006 Scion xA 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought this used with 18K on it. The car was filthy but cleaned up well and had been used for city driving. I have a new XD and needed something economical for work since I only get 30 cents per mile reimbursement. I get about 34 mpg with this, not as good as the 43 I can pull from the XD. It was good the first 35K, then a retainer fell off the Toyota brake pad and I had to replace the front brakes because they were noisy. And then at 36K the right rear wheel bearing went. That's way too early for a Toyota. So I'm wondering what will go at 38K.


Best Features

Design, very practical, previously Toyota quality.


Worst Features

No longer made, so what's the point of suggesting? I find parts are much more expensive and harder to find for the Scion vehicles than other Toyotas. Buyer beware! I had to replace the battery and no big box store stocked it. It was special order from the dealership.

2006 Scion xA 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 4A)


Review

lived in a rural area and drove to the City everyday. Despite the high miles, this car has had absolutely no problems. regular maintenance is all that is has required. I live in a winter snowy area and it handles very well. Gas is between 35-40 mpg. This car has been the best of any I have ever owned or ridden in!!!!


Best Features

gas, low maintenance, dash board panel sits in the middle and is very easy to read. wouldn't ever want one on the left side again.


Worst Features

cheap compartment that sits in between front seats. paid extra to have this installed and while it's better than an empy space it is very cheap and flimsy. good for holding sunglasses and that's about it.

Review

Bought my Scion (release series 3) new at the end of '06 and I still love it. Everyone who gets in loves it. Great fun to drive.


Best Features

Seats sit up high. Roomier interior than you'd expect. Very cool dashboard.


Worst Features

With the control panel in the center there isn't a light source near the steering wheel.
