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


This car is more a mini minivan than a urban sedan. As a 40-something couple with a toddler, this car fits us nicely. We bought this car because it met ours needs for reliability, affordable price, interior room, good power on hills, adequate gas mileage (barely), & overall value. After 4k miles and plenty of reflection, I would still buy this car, but with different options: Base car in blue, Standard radio-touch screen version is difficult to use, Upgrade suspension, C-pillar & rear net storage (have), Rear seat/cargo area cover (have), Splash guards/wheel flares (ebay), auto dim rear view mirror (far to reach), all weather floor mats, and see other stuff below.

Best Features

The xB came with a nice list of standards features that s impressive to over 40 crowd but is probably expected by the under 30 buyer. Lots of room for each passenger; Great head room for loading/unloading children in car seats; Storage under rear seat; Plenty of zoom-zoom.

Worst Features

Excessive body roll on curvey roads - include the TRD rear anti-sway bar and front strut tower brace as standard; larger rear and side mirrors; Seats have poor design/cushioning/cheap coverings, and no options for other. Seats are adequate but we're concerned about comfort on trips and durability.
