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


Review

As a 22 year old college student I bought this car 1 year ago to help keep the gas bill down and because of toyota's reliability behind it. What I didn't expect was the amazing MPG, low maintenance costs, great sound system, and the room inside. This car has been everything I ever wanted in a car and I will own it for quite some time.


Best Features

Radio, MPG, Comfort.


Worst Features

Better starting brakes and tires.

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


Review

I can't believe that I could fit my dining table in this car. It's just a good buy! Very large cargo space. It's gas efficient.


Best Features

Ipod connection, spacious cargo area, gas efficient.


Worst Features

too light and the paint is not strong enough to avoid the scratch.

Review

This has been a great car. The fuel economy has averaged between 32 and 38 depending on the driving. Storage space is surprisingly good especially when I fold down the back seat. The display in the middle of the console opens up a lot of visual field but takes a bit of getting used to. The ride is rough for long trips but when you consider what you are paying for gas vs what others are paying, the ride is not so bad. I am really surprised that they stopped making this car.


Best Features

Middle instrument display. gas mileage


Worst Features

None since this car is no longer manufactured

Review

Being fussy, after my corolla station wagon, I was disappointed the Scion gave about the same mpg, with so much less interior space. But after a while the mpg improved, (although the space didn't.) On the road I get an easy 40 mpg. In the city, between 34 and 36. But tools that fit a corner of the Corolla, are enough to fill the whole back of the Scion, making it resemble a dumpster. On the other hand it's nice to drive. The backhatch is practical. The car's prettier than the Yaris. And ith's needed no repairs after 48,000 miles.


Best Features

One surprise was the wonderful stereo sound system. The boomers vibrate the whole car. It's difficult to get out to do errands when serenely engulfed by Beethoven's 9th.


Worst Features

A little car should do much better than the Corolla wagon's 34-36 mpg. Radio knobs would be easier than buttons. In floods, roll windows are safer than automatic. Old fashioned little triangle windows made a nice breeze and defogged the the windshield. "Smart car" features + mpg ... then it's perfect.
