    2008 Scion xB

    The worst dision I have ever made!

    Pros: the stereo

    Cons: The rest of it, its a piece of junk!

    When I bought this car Toyota never told me these Scion's consume oil on a regular basis! This is not a joke my '08' Scion XB with 46K miles now & uses 3 out of 4 quarts of oil in 5000 miles. Both Toyota & Scion have made many excuses like 'this car is made for metropoliton use only'. We use this for our business and we travel about 200 miles a day, so for $24K you can't drive that new car around. Today I noticed that the car is using antifreeze, because there is a leak, possible water pump, but can't confirm. The dealer has been a major problem for us, our car was in for service, & got hit in there parking lot, they refuse to give me there Insurance info, and never called my insurance comp. back! So we have $1000 worth of damages & no one cares! We only get 23 mpg very low for a four cylinder, once again they (dealer & Corprate) blames all the extra weight, which doesn't exceed there cabin weight! Also the brakes suck, there very squishy, feels like theres air in the lines! I asked the dealer to do a 'power bleed', and they said it doesn't need it! I am a mechanic by trade now for 20+ yrs & Toyota need to re-evailuate the word efficient, any car these days shouldn't be using any oil at all! Last, when you have your oil changed, ask them to measure the oil that comes out of the engine. If you have a 4 cylinder normaly that would take 4 quarts. 4 go in 4 should come out any less means your car has issues. Save your self DON'T BUY A TOYOTA!

    2006 Scion xA - (M5)

    Pros: the stereo

    Cons: the throw away motor

    Advice: be wary, aluminum head $$$$$repair$$$$$

    I loved my car up until about 2 wks ago. I bought it new in 2005 gets great gas mileage compact yet comfortable...but....it started over heating last week it was the head gasket, had the head checked for cracks all was good and also had it resurfaced...they put it back together still overheating...the head is aluminum and is warped in one way or another...I already put almost a grand into fixing and now it needs a new head. it only has 103000 miles on it...I had hoped like alot of other foreign cars that it would last and last....no dice it is now just taking up space in my garage...oh yeah and I just paid it off too!!!
