    2005 Scion xB - (M5)

    Pros: handling

    Cons: minimal front seat storage places

    Advice: add the spoiler

    FUN! It's easy to drive this car smoothly (5-speed)and fun to push the on-ramps etc. Order the spoiler - it helps keep the rear window clear.I've gotten more complements on the camoflage green paint. Mileage is as advertised, unless you hit headwinds at 70+. With all the bells and whistles, it's a remarkable bargain (and my dealer didn't hassle). The only thing I might add is a Mack bulldog hood ornament - it seems to fit.

    2005 Scion xB - (M5)

    Pros: Body Style

    Cons: Needs Armrest for Driver Side

    Advice: Make sure the Vehicle is Your Style - Great Quality for the Price.

    You just can't beat the style, standard options, and price. Everytime, I pull up to the gas pump I am relieved that I no longer am putting over $45 a week in the tank. Now, even when gas prices soared a couple of months ago - $20 is the max! Never have I owned a car where so many people stop and ask questions. The price and style make up for lack of cruise control and interior map lights.

    2005 Scion xB - (M5)

    Pros: mileage/appearance

    Cons: location of cup holder - bangs on dashboard

    Advice: pressure dealers for arm rest, new visors, speed control

    Good pickup for a small engine (5-speed manual), very roomy, good mileage, uniquely stylish, bad cup holder placement, too small sun visors, need much more tilt on steering wheel, odometer out of reach, no arm rest in front center, doors a little tin-ny sounding, nice to have electric mirrors/windows, no option for speed control
