2010 Scion xB 4dr Wagon (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


I have owned a 2009 Scion Xb for over 2 years and have driven mine for 44,000 miles. It is a good car but not a great car. I bought it for fun to drive, which it is very fun the way mine is equipped, but not a great commuter vehicle. Fit and finish are ok, not as good as other Toyotas and definitely not up to Honda/Subaru like quality. There are some rough plastics and some of the interior design elements are quirky(like the useless drivers armrest). Mine has the TRD lowering springs and 19" TRD alloy wheels which make it look killer. However, as a commuter vehicle it makes the ride extremely harsh. Honda Fit a better choice for a similar price or stretch the budget and get a VW Golf.

Best Features

Factory customization options, Toyota reliability, cavernous interior

Worst Features

Give it a bigger gas tank and/or better fuel economy. I average 23/24 MPG with mostly highway driving which isn't horrible but the vehicle has only a 300 or so mile range making for frequent fill-ups. Give it a 5 Spd auto transmission.
