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


Nice car at first then it hits you. Put just the rear windows down and the vortex sucks your eardrums out. Scion say that is normal in all cars. We all know that is not ture. Set the crusie contol on a long flat road and watch it speed up on it own. Scion claims that normal for all cat as well. Brakes have to be pumped to get it stop with out a jerk. Also listen as it down shifts and hear the clunk. Oh ya the windows rattle and the plastic comes lose as well.

I've been driving 20 years, and owned almost a dozen cars/SUVs with 4 doors in that time, and had other work vehicles with 4 doors, and test driven even more. In every single one of them I've been in, rolling down ONLY the back windows(or a single rear window, especially just CRACKING a rear window) creates buffeting that is painful to the ears and uncomfortable in general. I tend to agree with Scion. That's normal for all cars. So no, we don't all know that's true.

^^^ Agreed. Every single car will cause the worst turbulence if you open the rear windows only. Every. Single. Car.
