    2009 Scion xB

    2009 Scion XB

    Pros: the look

    Cons: the non automatic off of interior & exterior lights

    I love my softly rounded box, great pickup and go, and it handles nicely. The interior though is somewhat plastic looking, and scuffs show easily. I also fault the VERY low tone of alarms for leaving your lights on and seat beats warnings. I have a hearing deficit, so I ended up leaving my lights on a few times as I adjusted to a car that does not have automatic light turnoff. I believe this is a huge safety issue, both the low tone, and the non-automatic lights off. My family agree the warning tones, are very hard to hear, even for those with regular hearing ability. If you were to leave your lights on in an unsafe area, and you come out with a dead battery, this could become a HUGE safety issue. You have to love Scion's pure pricing with all your options loaded from the start: cruise, stereo, power windows, mirrors, etc, the automatic lights off/on was a poor choice to be left out.

    2008 Scion xB

    Practical bike hauler

    Pros: interior room with the seats folded down

    Cons: The seats

    I bought the car 15 months ago. It's very practical. With the back seats folded down, I can stuff my road bike in without removing the front wheel, or I can stuff two bikes in if I remove the front wheels and seats. However, after 15 months, I'm still not used to the driver's seat. It's ok if I place a cushion behind my back.

    2008 Scion xB

    Excellent vehicle for seniors and young drivers.

    Pros: Good milage per gallon and fun to drive.

    Cons: None so far.

    This 2008 vehicle, with automatic transmission, has averaged 24 miles per gallon since I prichased it new in 2007. It has a large cargo capacity with the back seats folded gown and ample cargo area for grocery shopping and day to day usage. It is comfortable, very 'peppy' with 4 cyl engine and fun to drive. I have driven it about 30,000 miles since purchased new and have had no mechanical failures, major or minor. I am very satisfied with the performance.

    2006 Scion xB

    Style and Function

    Pros: Function

    Cons: Performance

    as the title says that's what the box has going for it. Amazing room inside for the size vehicle although oddly there is more room in the back seat than the front. And the car looks good, certainlt not a cooki cutter although others have followed the concept. Descent gas mileage but the car is a slug and it is a tin box. My VW convertible has a more stout structure.
