Got a killer lease on an xB

2009 Scion xB 4dr Wagon (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


I was able to haggle the price to invoice AND lease for same money as the national offer that's available for the Corolla. I'm a big guy and I find ingress excellent with great seating position. However, the seats are barely acceptable with limited adjustment and no lower back support. I should have paid more attention to this detail b4 purchase! Furthermore, the seating room is plentiful but the center console rubs my knee pretty hard. I may velcro on a little padding and solve this problem. Ride and handling are excellent. Car feels solid, wind noise is nil, engine is awesome. Although sheetmetal is flimsy, i think structure is solid and the complement of airbags make car pretty safe

Best Features

value, huge space, ingress/egress, incredible ride and handling compromise, torquey engine, quietness, safety, reliability

Worst Features

scion should fix: interior and trunk are spooky dark at night; center armrest is way too low; controls for the handy trip computer should be on console instead of dash bezel; auto-up window needed; i'd pay extra if scion offered: better adjustable seats; leather; zenons; sunroof
