Kool Car but cheap for a reason!

2006 Scion xB 4dr Wagon (1.5L 4cyl 4A)


I bought this car new. I had to pay extra for cruise and a cheap piece of plastic with a cloth covered piece of plastic called an arm rest. my elbow barely fits on. This did add a rear cup holder which made it better. My windshield suffered a stress crack 6 days after i purchased and i have rode around with a cracked windshield ever since. This is a well known problem but not covered under warranty. Have strange rattle in dash that is annoying. Cruise control is a cheap after market piece of plastic. It does not stay at a constant speed so i never use it. Also is not flushly mounted. Over all this is a cool car with great mpg and room but misses the mark on the small things.

Best Features

I love how much room this car has. I am 6'2 and could easily fit in the back seat. Have moved 3 times with this car. Great MPG! Love the sounds system. Great base and wheel mounted controls. Unique design.

Worst Features

Sluggish and hard to pass cars. Strange rattle in dash. Cheap cruise control and armrest. Does not come with floor mats??? Windshields break for no reason. No sunroof available or any other luxury options. Just neon lights and tack after market accessories.
