It hurts our backs to travel more than two hours in this vehicle. The seats are not that comfortable and the road vibration is not good. On the other hand, it turns on a dime and is easy to park. Gas mileage is just okay. Cargo room is good. Head room is great for a tall person. Leg room is great.
If you want a little car with alot of room,this is it.it is easy to park and get around town.Fun to drive. this is my second one.I owned the 1st model and now the last model of this car .known as the second gen..great car for the money.look at the xb's out there they have alot of miles on them.they will go go The only problem is the cloth in the seats.Show wear and discoloration fast.6000 miles the seat looks like 60000 miles.Not happy with that.
UPDATE 04/16/2018: Mileage 8,600 and five oil filter and oil changes only the past 2 plus years of ownership. Great investment and ride!
Basically a Toyota built vehicle. Phasing out Scion and some models will be re-branded Toyota. My Scion Xb stopped production December 2015, but worth every penny I paid for it, actually more with the free AutoNation Toyota free add-on options given to me.
