What a great car!
By Bubba K on


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


So glad I bought this thing before the new one came out (yuck!). It's the best car I've ever had. Fun to drive, gets good mileage, extremely useful to haul large objects, I could go on and on. You can even push the front seat to connect the back and take a nap. This is not a performance vehicle, so don't expect much of that. With the stick, it merges just fine on the freeway. My only gripe is the cheap plastic faux-lowrider crap around the outside of the car. If you want a great little car that's a blast to drive, this is a good choice.

Best Features

5 spd stick, huge interior, good handling, good mileage, decent stereo, all power, traction control, ABS, Stability Control, reliability.

Worst Features

a/c is weak, cleaner exhaust, better mileage (new Xb is a thumbs down!), airbags all around (now in new Xb), raise the plastic lowrider wannabe crap tacked all around the car up a few inches, or just take it off completely. I hope Toyota makes a better Xb than what they have in '08.
