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


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.
