Was not crazy about the car when I bought it, but it's been a pleasant surprise! I bought it to drive back and forth to work because of the mileage, but it's actually quite fun to drive and has a good bit of room. I�m averaging about 27 mpg and have had no problems with the car. Seems to be very reliable�
Great Car with some cut corners.
2008 Scion xBAndrew from TN - TN08/24/2012
Overall I love this car. It is a great car for the money and is great quality everywhere that counts. However, it is obvious that Scion/Toyota cut some corners in order to keep the price down.
-Interior could be more functional.
Annoying center mounted guages guages.
Guages could use more color unless you like orange
Console for shifter is way too big.
Have to push a button to toggle between clock, gas mileage etc...
Overly complicated radio.
Interior is too dark. Everything is black and some functions do not light up.
-Needs more armrests.
-Only has a 4 speed transmission which kills gas mileage.
-Seats are great for short trips, but could be more supportive on long trips.
-A lot of plasic on the interior
The good (far outweighs the bad):
-Motor and platform have a great reputation.
-Lots of cargo space
-Fun to drive.
-Lots of features for the $$$$
-Is capable of almost 30 mpg on the interstate if you drive smart.
While there are a few annoyances I would happily buy this car again and if the reputation holds true hopefully I will be driving it for many years.
Scion XB much improved!
2008 Scion xBCruisin' Mama - Kenosha WI02/08/2008
Having driven the first generation XB, this model has improved all the things that I disliked: Comfortable seats are now adjustable in height on driver side; more horsepower (YES!!!) definite improvement; this is a zippy car; has optional lighting under dash. Seating has room for tall teenagers without grumbling!! I'm very happy with this purchase. Only thing left on my wish list: 4-wheel drive in an future version.
This sports car buying guide has 18 different sports cars for shoppers who want a little more driving excitement in their lives. There’s something for everyone here, from zippy four-cylinder convertibles to monstrous, 500-horsepower-plus sports cars that really push you back in their driver’s seats!
