Love my new Scion xB
By Pete on


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


When I first viewed this car (Scion XB) it seemed to be designed for the 20 something crowd. It was aimed at the same demographic as the Honda Element. However,it seemed to me that there were many more 30, 40, 50, and 60 somethings driving the Elements that I saw. So I decided to test drive an Element and fell in love with it. It was a short romance, because then I decided to test drive a Scion xB. That was it. This car was $5,000 cheaper than a comparably equipped Element, got 10 miles per gallon better mileage, and was more fun to drive. I'm not in Toyota's planned demographic for an xB either. I'm a 71 year old retired college professor.

Larger engine (but not to sacrifice gas mileage).
