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.

Pros

Loads of interior space; Great road visibility; Awesome city car

Cons

Less than stellar front seats; Low clearance on front and rear bumpers means they take a beating

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.

Good Car, But Not Worth The Moeny — i loved the appearance when i bought the car, but after a while without hitting things or overusing the back door, the handle to open the truck just falls off and hangs there, which isn't very appealing. i get decent gas mileage which is good since i drive far for work. everyone who has driven my car thinks its fun to drive like a little go cart they call it. i like the car although they could have made it so stuff doesn't fall off.

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.

Pros

99% it's all great

Cons

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.

Pros

Very versatile, fuel efficient, and handles like no other box!

Cons

Lack of power

25

My Box — With the TRD springs and shocks, this box handles like no other; the ride is pretty comfortable and firm enough. The stock Pioneer sound system is pretty decent. Safety, what safety! The only downside is the power, it's good for daily commuting, but I wouldn't spend a dime on aftermarket parts to make this any faster cuz it will be a waste of money for this kind of a car. It's roomy everywhere else beside the cargo compartment. Overall, it's gives a good bang for your bucks.
