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


I bought this car to save on gas. I have yet to hit the EPA estimates. In highway driving, at the speed limit of 75 mph I cranked out a whopping 26 mpg. I guess since the car was taching at 4,000 rpms in 5th gear. I should be happy it didn't blow up. Its A/C is inadequate. It has to be run on high fan and recirculate to keep the car cool. It has an uncomfortable ride. You feel every bump in the road. Alsi, it's very underpowered. Check the resale values, others must not be impressed either.

Best Features

The great radio with an iPod connection and how it is very easy to park.

Worst Features

Add a 6th gear, more power, and give it more realistic EPA gas mileage estimates.
