Reviews for Scion
A Unique & Reliable Little Workhorse
It is small outside but huge inside, and designed in minimalist style. It gets fabulous mileage and requires extremely little maintenance. It is a brilliant, elegant design, and is really a Toyota! When it first came out, it was a funny looking best kept secret of quality assurance. I drove many Zipcars in 2006 and bought my favorite, but a new one. The XB was hands down best for being cheap, fun, hauling junk, and getting great mileage. I also think ANY car is better with manual transmish. Lots of room inside thanks to the high square shape. A little truck really. And by now a cult classic too. It's the boxiest. Still love it, but I get a company car now and must sell.
Quick/reliable/sleek--What more could you ask for?
This vehicle has been the best I have ever owned. It's a perfect combination of economy (around 29 mpg combined city/highway), power, and reliability. Even driving through snow with the stock low-profile tires (once I flipped the traction control system off), I was never worried about losing control of the vehicle because of its impressive handling. I love the Bluetooth connectivity and large touch screen stereo, and though I would have liked features like navigation and heated leather seats, I can't be disappointed overall given the driving experience and things that the car has done well.
The gears are very very short. Im having to drive 40mph in fifth gear on thestreet! The tire pressure sensor light is always on when all tires are inflated accordingly. Dont disconnect the battery for any reason because things will stop working, such as putting the passenger window down on the driver side button. Also, the sun roof was VERY hesitant to open and i had to hold the button for a good 5 seconds for it to open. With air conditioning and fan off, air still blows through while driving as if the fans are on so you have to press the button to use surrounding air. Dont even get me started on the non stop squeaking brakes. The hatch seems ti even stick for no apparent reason and even takes the rubber with it. Very disappointing car.
