Pros: Audio steering wheel controls, Comfortable seats, Center mounted speedometer, Turn indicators on side mirrors, 160 watt CD/MP3/iPod Stereo, Standard ABS
Cons: 103 horsepower engine, Standard wheel covers
Advice: A great first car for first time car loan (Depending on the sticker price. Cheap monthly payments through Toyota Motor Credit), Cheap to fill up ($21.50 at $2.15 a gallon)The xA drove like a dream for what it offers. I fell in love with it in a second once I got to test drive it on the interstate. The drive was smooth and fun to drive especially going 75 mph. Braking is quite quick and responsive. People have complained about nosey engine humming but I very much like to hear it since I feel like I'm driving Japanese sports car. Only major issue I have with the xA, is the poor acceleration especially getting on any interstate on ramps trying to out speed a semi-trailer truck when the truck can not lane change to middle lane. Other than that, I brought the xA that I test drove and never had major mechanical problems. I love my xA very much, I'm even thinking of purchasing the xB.
Pros: The moonroof.
Cons: Theres not one.
Advice: GO GET ONE!I test drove this car and fell in love with it. I went back the next day and bought it! I had a 2001 Jeep Grande Cherokee, with tons of room in it, to a car with not as much, but I absolutley love it! You would think the back seat would be cramped, but actually there is a lot of leg room back there, just not so much head room for those tall ones. You will LOVE this car! Go get one!
Pros: good looks
Cons: center mounted instruments
Advice: get rid of those wheel covers and get a now Toyota/Scion remote entry system (for around $100)Excellent package for the price! I am over 50 and what a great, fun car. I added some alloys and the spoiler. Just because you aren't 20 something, doesn't mean you can't be cool! Pros: Looks great, really good gas mileage, fun to drive. Cons: Should have a less expensive keyless entry and a telescoping steering wheel to go along with the tilt.
Pros: all the extras. comes standard with moonroof and a/c is awesome
Cons: the exterior styling needs a little work
Advice: get one nowawesome!
Pros: The Options
Cons: geared weird
Advice: Buy it!!! This car is great for the valueI love my xA! I bought this car about 2 months ago and I just love it. Incredible gas mileage, decent handling, good sound system, comfortable seats. They look so tiny yet there is sufficient head room. My only complaint is that on the highway you feel like you need another gear. My roommate/friend liked it so much he went out and got one too!
Advice: Go for it, and buy this car!This car is bomb. It is the best car yet. The acceleration is smooth and easy, great steering, & my favorite part is the sunroof! I have an automatic, white 2006 scion tc with the rear lip spoiler and iPod hookups. It is worth what you pay for it. You also get great gas mileage! I can fillup my tank with around $20.
Pros: Speaker System
Advice: It's an awesome car, perfect buy!Really nice car. Sporty and affordable. I got the 2006 Special Edition and I love it. Drives wonderful!
