It will get dirtier a bit faster then most cars, due to it's Awesome Aerodynamics.

Superior — Performance is good, not great though, 0-60 MPH, is not fast, but it is a car to cruise in, if you really want to race then pimp it out. Has not broken down yet, it wont, i hope for a loooong time. Looks are Unique. noting like this anywhere, interior is HUGE, for such a car, much bigger then any car we have. Bunch of space everywhere. MPG are good, maintenance is good also, pretty cheap to take care of it. Now i got to tell you, this is my favorite car to drive, from all the cars i ever driven,That's a Fact. Take a test drive for a day and you might own one yourself.

The Scion — I don't care what people think, I LOVE my box! You can't beat the gas mileage of this thing. I think it is super cute. It handles well, just a really light car, so windy days can make it sway a little on the road. fun to drive and overall an inexpensive car to purchase and upkeep. Made by Toyota, so this car should last a while!

Small, Stylish And Cost Effective. — The body style is very "cool" these days. I love the fuel mileage. There is plenty of headroom. It fits is every size parking space with no problem. I would like a larger cargo space and possibly a cargo rack on the roof.

Great Teenage Car — I really like driving this car around town. It is a very comfortable ride. As I have gotten older, I realize that I would love to have more power in a car. Overall, I would really recommend picking up an older model for younger drivers. Great on gas.

The Wonderful First Gen Xb — When I bought this car, my wife was not pleased. She felt it was too boxy and ugly. After a couple of weeks, she totally fell in love with it. Easy to park, great visibility (almost an SUV's perspective of the road), and loads and loads of cargo space. The unique style grew on her, and we've enjoyed this car for years now. At over 130k miles, we've definitely gotten our money's worth. Still seeing ~29 MPG regularly. The whole family will be sad to see this one go.

Xb Is A Great Car — Plenty of room inside. Great visibility both forward and reverse, no blind spots. Great gas mileage and plenty of room for storage in the back. Great car for the money. I would definitely buy car again. Even the standard raidio is pretty good.
