2005 Scion xB 4dr Wagon (1.5L 4cyl 4A)


I had this car for two years. The a/c stopped working, and it turned out something in the a/c pipes burst, and sent shards of metal all through the system, and it was going to cost around $800 to fix. My rear trunk panel cracked off, the interior feels cheap and "plastic-y". It's very simple, not much too it. No bells and whistles here. While it isn't extremely powerful or fast, I always had a good time driving it, and it never once broke down on me.

Best Features

Extremely roomy. I could fit 3 bicycles in the back without disassembling anything simply by folding down the back seats.

Worst Features

Interior is all plastic and cheap. Expect little things to crack and break off.
