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


Review

This was my first new car. This car is soild/ dependable car. I have the oem 18inch wheels and rear stabilizer bar. I drve for a while without these and they made a huge improvement in ride and handling. 55xxx on it now....I will drive this car until it falls apart...If you know your buying a economy car, this is a perfect great sporty car. I am so happy I bought this car. I cant ask for much more.


Best Features

I drive a lot..comfort/reliable/good stereo. I would not suggest a automatic transmission, the manual is great.


Worst Features

better interior storage, a 6th gear and sunroof.

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


Review

Fun and easy to drive. But, VERY EXPENSIVE repair/replacement of a rear wheel bearing assembly (over $500...could not replace just the bearing).


Best Features

Youthful style, fun to drive, small size allows easy parking, good gas mileage


Worst Features

Better design on rear wheel axle bearings. Sealed assemblies make repairs far too costly.

Review

I’ve owned this car a little over 3 years now and I’m approaching 30K miles. It is the best car I’ve ever owned. No trips to the dealer except for scheduled maintenance. I live in Ventura and it’s perfect for parking in tight spots and doing the 7-mile commute to work down the 101. Stereo is great! I average 33 MPG; Lowest MPG was 30 and highest (round trip: vacation to Bakersfield) was 39.47. I’m 6 ft. and I can “sit behind myself”. MPGs would be even better if there was a 6th “overdrive” gear. Friends are impressed and sad; too bad they stopped making these. The xD is not really a replacement. If I had to replace this car today I’d give the Honda Fit a serious once-over.


Best Features

Cheap! Dependable! Good on gas!


Worst Features

Cruise Control, 6th speed/overdrive.

Review

I have had my car 3yrs and have been completely satisfied. The seats are comfortable and sit high for good visibility. The gas mileage is decent. And I like the looks. I hope to have this car a long time.


Best Features

Firm, comfortable sits that sit high. Plenty of head room and leg room in back. Dependable
