Nice Little Baby You Can Rely On!
Bought 2005 Scion XA a little over a year ago (159k). Test Drove and plugged in OBT2. No Codes. It had a long Carfax list of Regular Repair. Drove like a dream. Now at 175k... No Codes... No issues. I've put about $1800 in TLC... and highest quality Syn Oil... basic stuff. I expect 400k from the Simple Scion (Toyota) 5-Speed Manual. Saw one TODAY in a parking lot... Same exact model! I talked to the Owner. She had over 250k on hers! Only thing she's done (outside of semi-regular maintenance) is replacement of O2 Sensor. She thought I was SELLING MINE. She called her husband immediately! I assured her... I'm keeping this little charm to at least 400k! Only complaint... Gear Box is notchy! Nothing is perfect. Love this car!
Good mpg. Lacks power. A/C struggles.
This is a great little commuter car. Easy to drive and park in the city. In Highway driving it can keep up with traffic but is slow to pass. A/C works but if it gets into the 90’s it starts to struggle. Mine is at 273k miles and is starting to have problems that I can’t fix myself.
Great value for a commuter vehicle
Great car for commuting to work for over 15 years! The mileage was great and is still good. Still drives good. No majors repairs were needed.
