Reviews for 2009 Scion xB
so far so good
i've had for a mounth and so far it performs better than we expected, even is great in the snow.
im 6'1' tall and needed a roomier car instead of my little corolla. I'm glad i got this car rather than a honda element. Would've been a big regret. This car is quiet, smooth, roomy for all passengers. If you need space for a bike or a lot of cargo, you can fold down the rear seats. Unlike the element this car has space for 5 passengers, not 4 like the element. This car sets up apart from the rest of the crowd, and that's good. The sound system is amazing. I'd probably change the stereo to a more fancier one though, just personal preference. I got the automatic transmission, so i can't say how the manual one drives. plenty of cupholders in the middle, on the side doors, and the rear seats. Plenty of storage everywhere for cds, and small accesories. the dashboard display is in the middle, not behind the steering wheel. Very easy to get used to. It also tells you how much you average per gallon of fuel. which is about 22 for me highway and city combined. The rear trunk opens up so you can just sit and just chill or lie down. Nice turning radius as well, drives well. The transmission has this feature which acts like a manual transmission. Has come in handy when i don't want to use the brakes and rather use downshifting. The car is a bit low, so just watch out for dips and parking spaces that have a curb right in front of it. Overall, great car. It's a toyota, so you get reliability. Have had no problems whatsoever. The price is great also for such a recent year model. Has a lot of standard features that would be considered options in other cars. Great car period.
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.
