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

4.7

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.

4.9

Lots of room, zippy, & inexpensive.

This is the third XB that I have owned. An ' 06, '11 & 14. Only down side, it should get better gas mileage, but I currently get about 29-30. Has more room than people think. Wish they were still for sale!
