2005 Scion xB 4dr Wagon (1.5L 4cyl 5M)


I have had my xB for several years now. I got my car with alloy wheels, arm rest and cruise control installed. I consistently get 30mpg in either city or highway. I still love the looks of it, I replaced the grill with billet aluminum and the rear lights with LEDs after I got rearended once (new tailgate as well). The car is reliable as can be (it's a Toyota afterall). Even after the new (ugly) xB's came out I still get comments on how cool (or ugly) my car is. If I had the means, I would get another, but with a manual transmission. I have had to have 2 large chips filled in from errant rocks at about $20 each.

Best Features

MP3 headunit, Great looks, Great fuel economy. Seats 5 adults easily. Lots of headroom. Integrated antenna in the glass.

Worst Features

The armrest is worthless 90% of the time, the visor mirrors are ridiculously tiny, cruise control isn't offered by the factory (I know they fixed that in the ugly new ones), and an actual temp gauge would be nice.
