Fabulous 40,000 Miles So Far
By Charlie SJC on


2004 Scion xB 4dr Wagon (1.5L 4cyl 5M)


The Scion xB has more head and leg room for four tall people than most SUVs. The gas mileage with the stick shift has improved from year to year. I never get less that 32 mpg now and sometimes get 35 mpg.

Best Features

We are retired so trips to hilly San Francisco, the nursery, Costco and the hardware store are the order of the day. The xB is perfect for short trips with four people wearing hats.

Worst Features

Smooth roads are very comfortable, but rough roads will beat you to death. There is no option for softer shocks. The front seats have no thigh support. I stacked an inch and a half of washers on longer front seat bolts in order to raise the front of the seat. What were they thinking?
