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


To be fair, you get what you paid for. At $18, xxx don't expect performance like a Porsche. I read other reviewers, you going to get some damage when you hit the curb unless you drive a tank. Build is great at this price, pretty quiet ride. Huge space picking up passengers from airport. Quality/comfort is up to my expectation at this price. My friend has a Mercedes which cost 3 times more. You can't compare at that price range. Overall, happy with this car. One thing is at 8xxx miles, engine start shaking and vsc lights on. Took it to dealership and the replaced the engine wiring hardness. So far, it's ok. Didn't expect this issue from a Toyota 11 months old car.

Best Features

interior space, look, easy to be reconfigure, lots of help from the scion forum.

Worst Features

gas mileage, this car is heavy, I guess it burn more gas. My second choice would be a Honda 09 Fit.
