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


We now have 250 miles on our xB(ox). Things I like include the stying, performance. I like the cruise control. Other cars I've driven will downshift and floor the gas if you hit the break and then resume cruise. Not this Toyota system. Resume = smooth return to previous speed. Things I don't like. I'm short (5'7") and hit my knees on the steering column getting in and out. Would it have broken the bank to put a second arm rest for the front passenger? Would prefer an analog speedo rather than digital.

Best Features

Styling. Power. Mileage. Cruise control. Handling. Audio system (Base Pioneer system).

Worst Features

Second arm rest on front passenger seat. Better/more color choices. Little interior quirks, like the headrests on the back seats hit the back of the front seat when you put the back seats down (if the front seats are back). The front seat headrests poorly placed for my wife, push her head forward
