    2005 Scion xA - (M5)

    Pros: The unusual look and the price (tie)

    Cons: Rear passenger headrests block the vision of the rear windshield; had to remove them.

    Advice: Dealers have scams; to compensate for Scion's 'fixed price', some dealers tried to charge $379 for 'administrative fees'; go to another dealer if you spot something like this.

    Love the carbon interior (doesn't have that cheap plastic look) A little bumpy driving, but that feels cool, like a jeep. Several unique features: instrument panel to the right, not obscured by the steering wheel, rear light (for kids to read?) separate from front light, fabulous stereo system for a standard feature.

    2004 Scion xA - (M5)

    Pros: 38 MPG and design

    Cons: Horse power

    Advice: If you want a compact car the xA is simply the best bang for your buck.

    As a former VW Golf GT owner my expectations were high. The Scion xA passed the test. On the hiwaay, my xA is at home, with a surprisingly quite and smooth ride. While in traffic, I love that there are virtually no blind spots. The engine looks and runs great, but delivers poorly when compared to my old Golf GT. I miss the punch. As an XM listener, the fact that the receiver is XM ready is a big plus as well. I commute 125 miles a day to work. I’m looking forward to the time my XM, xA, and myself will spend together. My wife is a bit jealous.
