My husband, 62, wasn't sure what to
think when I took him to the
dealership to test drive my xB. He
wasn't sure if I had just lost it or
was going through my second
childhood. After our test drive, he
was sold. A few may not like this car
at first glance, but it doesn't take
long for them to change their minds.
For the price, there is not a car I
would rather own.
Small outside, but roomy inside! My
son is 6'2" and has 3" of knee
and head clearance which he doesn't
have in our SUV. For a four
banger, it is quit peppy and gas
efficient! My xB is so easy to
maneuver due to its size and turning
radius. I couldn't be happier with it.
Inside arm rests for the front seats
would be a definate improvement.
Just got the car last week and love it.
Enough power for around town and
commuting, but I am looking forward to
adding some Scion performance items to
enhance the power. Ride is a bit stiff,
but not bad. Dealing with the salesman
was surprisingly pleasant, and the
buying process was efficient. Body
metal is light guage and some interior
plastic is not very stout, but for the
price, + - 16,000, not bad.
gas milage + - 32, fun to drive, and I
have never owned a car that got such
positive comments from strangers.
I wish Scion would include some
perfomance enhanceing features as
standard items. Seats are a bit
uncomfortable for me. 6'-4" 270 lbs,
but not awful.
I got a new 2004 model with 3 miles on
it for under 15g. It is very roomy and
comfortable. Its not the fastest thing
but thats not what its meant to be.
Almost 40 miles to the gallon. Would
buy it allover again. Thanks Toyota.
Also 5 year UNLIMITED mile warranty!
The wind nocks it around more than most
cars, can that be fixed?
