2008 Scion xB 4dr Wagon (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


I traded my 2006 xB in for the 2008 and I couldn't be happier. It has so much more power and the ride is so much more smooth and quiet. In addition, I feel safer since it has side airbags and a higher doorline. I do a lot of freeway driving and can merge and pass with ease now. The vehicle feels much more responsive than the original xB. It is loaded with features for the price and feels and rides like a much pricier car. My only quibbles are the blindspots in the rear corner, the width of the armrest, and the mushiness of the driver's seat.

Best Features

Passing power, smooth ride, more easily accessible cupholders, side and curtain airbags, iPod connector, more information in the displays.

Worst Features

A wider driver's armrest, a firmer driver's seat, a return of the rear 3/4 window to eliminate the blindspot.
