a fun car with the bulletproof Camry engine

I bought this car new in 2014 and I loved it. I still love it. It's got 160k and my 16yo is now driving it and he loves it, everyone knows it's him. I got a new RAV4 2022. This scion xb has the same engine as my 2005 Camry. Love it.

2nd Scion l have owed and both have been super rel

One of the best reliable cars then and now even though the Scion brand is done and that’s too bad but the Toyota brand has always had my attention then and now never had any problems with both of them and when I decide on a new car like new Corolla and hybrid Camry both cars will allow me to retire from my job in about one year and retire into the sunset in a great car

Most dependable and Fun and practical vehicle ever

It's fun, quick, versatile, fuel efficient, "fun" looking and I would drive it myself to anywhere for work or fun and my teenager hates that he's about to get his license and I'm selling it! LOL Toyota and Scion made a great team here. This should never have been discontinued...or the scion brand. This was their best car all around.
