2006 Scion xB 4dr Wagon (1.5L 4cyl 5M)


Very unique, Everyone comments on the "Toaster on wheels" shape of the car love walking out to my car, cant help but smile when i drive it around at 30- 32 MPG with a/c blasting against the Texas sun. Loads of room inside, ergonomics make a lot of sense. its very simple and roomy everywhere. (looking around before buying a saw a lot of them, if you are in the market make sure to check several things, the front and rear plastic clip on bumpers in many cases seem to get damaged and should be checked as getting replacements color matched will be expensive. Also beware of certain aftermarket wheels in some cases they trigger the Indicator lights b/c of the way it reads MPH.

Best Features

TONS of room Unique look Excellent mileage Stock pioneer sound system and head unit VISIBILITY

Worst Features

No front lights near the mirror to light up the front, only has the one dome light towards the back Cheaped out on the interior door panels, could have done better there Not the fastest car in the world. but it will still cruise good at 80 around 3600 rpm once it gets there
