I love my Scion xB
The inside is comfortable to drive & incredibly roomy. This is my 2nd Scion xB Best car I've ever had. Low maintenance! I'll keep buying the 2006 as long as I can find them.
This car has served me well for 16 yrs., however with 250K miles the check engine light stays on & mechanic's are saying NO fix. So I'm dumping it for a Kia Soul, now to see "IF" I can get same quality service from this car. Sad Toyota chose to discontinue this style car & support to keep it running.
Best EVER Car I'm 72. EVER.
A friend laughed at my "toaster". He's a BIG GUY. Owns a GMC 2500 He got in the back seat when we went to dinner. I watched him looking around. Told me there was more room in my car than his truck He never called it a toaster again. And if you like to go around sharp curves in a toaster? Do it. You'll go through tires quickly. The tires aren't happy when you do 70 around a 30 curve. But it's FUN! And the car will do it, every time 146,000 so far. 32-38 MPG Put a 9 foot 6 inch propeller shaft INSIDE THE CAR windows up. A forever car.
Best car I have ever owned
370k miles and still going strong. No major mechanical issues. Regular maintenance has kept it going strong. No blind spots for visibility. Lots of passenger room. Minimal cargo space but if you are creative you can cram a lot in there.
If I was informed by Toyato I would had not wreck
I feel if I would had been informed by Toyato I would not had wrecked in the rain at night due from the headlghts.I wrecked it six weeks ago.My insurance was just lie ablity. So i feel Toyato should pay me for negligence not informed me of the recalls.
I put 350k miles on it still running strong
I did uber for a while w this car I got it w 180k miles, and now I got 350k miles on it barely gave me issues. Still running strong always started. But I had to get rid of it because it was getting to old for uber's requirements. I hope its w a good owner now hope ots still running. It was a great little car.
Very reliable and strong at 345k miles
The interior is very roomy for its size and suitable for a family of 5. My xB currently has 345k miles and uses no oil and does not smoke or make any noise. I'm very impressed with its reliability as I drive the vehicle 80 miles a day for work. This xB is extremely inexpensive and shares the same motor as the Prius. 2006 and prior year models are known to last 300k plus miles. My last xB showed 450k miles when I sold it to a friend who now has over 500k miles on it! This vehicle is not a performance model, but will get you where you need to go (so long as you are not in a hurry). I'd recommend this model to any person or small family looking for a reliable and economic mode of transportation.
Best car I've ever had and I've had many.
Without a doubt the best car ever for the money. Reliable in every way. Never a major repair in over 300,000 miles just regular servicing.
My Baby she is loud
This car was amazing when I bought her used with 126,000 miles now she is pushing 160,000 across country is no problem for this car. I have put close to 15,000 into the audio system and performance parts such as cold air intake, chip, exhaust, and lowering suspension and wow is she peppy. Fro 108 horsepower to 168 horsepower is a big difference in this little mean classy machine.
I like the Scion
My wife and I have plenty of room in the car despite it's small size. It's performance is also very nice. The mileage is a real difference from the vehicle we had previously.
