2008 Scion xB: Shifty McShifter
September 26, 2007
Overall, the xB is fine. It's a HUGE improvement over the previous version. One thing I can't stand it how the transmission kicks down even if I just brush the accelerator. Gets annoying real quick. The shift it yourself is useless too - it just holds at that gear - no real control...
I like the quiet ride - a road trip in the xB is quite doable.
