Big change but worth it

2011 Scion xB 4dr Wagon (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


After recently deciding that I needed something that was a little more flexible for a family with 2 kids than my previous 2 Tundras, I started looking at smaller utility vehicles. I also wanted to keep the cost reasonable without having to just "get by" with a tiny engine and tiny interior space, or with a vehicle that had questionable build quality. With all of this in mind, I have to say that I love the 2011 xB and it is exactly what I was looking for. It is very fun to drive, has plenty of power around town or on the highway and I can fit my wife and 2 kids (with car seats) in it and still have plenty of covered storage area in the back. Safety features are great as well.

Best Features

Utility, styling, safety, expected reliability, personality. Fun to drive.

Worst Features

Ride a little harsh, but I have the 18in alloys with low profile tires, so that may have something to do with it. Wish the automatic was a 5 speed, but it is rarely a big deal - particularly with the "auto shift".
