Used Scion xB 10 Series for Sale
Reviews for Scion xB
It's the newest and lowest mileage car I've had.
I had a list of features I was looking for. This is the newest and lowest mileage car with the most technology I've ever had. First time getting a loan and making payments so it had to fit my short term and long term requirements. I had a Honda CRV for 12.5 years as an example. I wanted to be able to sit up and have good visibility through the windows, good gas mileage, be able to fit a bike and cargo in the back with a door that lifts up, not sideways, comfortable seating for me, good overall condition, good handling (especially in the rain), etc. The Scion has those features and it is a manual drive which is fine for me. I can only find one thing I would change is that the exterior frame is low which I am concerned about being dented.
I've had the XB for about 2 months now, but have actually only driven it for about a month due to being away. So far, I love it. It has a lot of room for such a small looking car. I have 4 kids and 2 of them are over 5'9". I can easily fit 3 adults in the back seat and the leg room is amaizing as well as the head room. There is also a good amount of space in the cargo area. My husband loves this car, he is tall and he is always hitting his head getting in or out of cars and then only having a few inches above his head once he is in it. I think this car is great looking, my teenagers are not "embarrased" to be seen driving in this car. So far I love it, I am interested to see how it will handle in winter weather. I only gave the scion 4 stars in comfort because it's not a luxury car (I don't have any problem with the comfort though) and a 4 for performance because I haven't driven it in winter weather. (It seems to handle fine in the rain.)
I test drove a lot of cars in this class and the one thing most of them had in common was lack of power. Not this car. Lots of power. In fact, when you take off from a stand still, you have to be very careful or you will spin the tires a bit. Not sure what this will do to the life of the front tires. With all that power, you would think the gas mileage would suffer. But I'm getting 25 MPG. And the way I drive, that's amazing. Someone who doesn't tend to accelerate as fast as I do would probably get better gas mileage. It costs about half of what it did to fill up my old car, and I still fill up once a week. My old car was a Mercury Mountaineer that said it should get 18 MPG, but only got 16 MPG. The seats are pretty comfortable, but not great. No lumbar adjustment. Love the Aux plug so I can plug in my mp3 player. Stereo sounds good but doesn't have a lot of power, so if you like your music REALLY loud, you might want to upgrade the stereo. Love being able to change the volume on the steering wheel. The cruise control works well, but the controls seem backwards to me. Probably just used to my old car. The car doesn't have automatic headlights so you have to turn them on and off yourself, which is fine with me. Rear windshield wiper only covers middle 50% of back window. Main windshield wipers have only one setting for intermittent and it's not that long. Every other car I have owned since the 80's all had adjustments for the delay. Not this car. This is not a luxury car, but it's nice. When you take the features it has coupled with the gas mileage and the low price for the car, it's a really good value.
