Pros

Peppy, fun to drive; on those back highways you can power into the curves because it handles so well.  Great gas mileage with lots of storage room with the back seats down.  

Cons

Can be a noisy drive on rough roads, a/c sucks the power when running on high.

Fun And Peppy Car To Drive With Great Gas Mileage. — My 2006 Scion xA is a Release Series 3.0 and only 2100 were made. Mine is badged 1047 of 2100. It has a Kenstyle body lip kit only available on the RS 3.0 as well as the Stingray Metallic Blue which was only available on the RS 3.0 xA. It is a fun a peppy car to drive, handles well on those highway curves, has great gas mileage and can park anywhere.

When this one finally gives up, I would definatley consider another.

Cons

It's not a performance car and it doesn't carry all that much.

For A Small Car With A 1.5l Engine It Does Pretty Well. It's Fun To Drive, Gets Great Mileage. — I've had the car for 4 years now and still love it. It gets 34mpg and can run 80mph all day if needed. Running the A/C does bog it down a bit though but I don't use that much anyway. Handling is good but you don't want to push it too hard, it's not a sports car.

Love It. — Performance: I would have to say that I enjoy the overall performance from my vehicle, it has great handling, fun to drive, and was definitely a good buy fora college student. Build: The only repair that I did have to do on the car so far was to get new rotors, but that was easily fixable. Appearance: I love the exterior of the car, though I hope to myself get tinted windows I couldn't be happier with the 'edginess' this car seems to have. Cost of Ownership: The gas milage in mine is absolutely fantastic, driving manual with highway driving I get around 40MPG, and around town I usually get 36 - 38 MPG. Excellent.

Wonderful Scion — This car get about 31mpg in the city and that is me not being easy on the throttle. Has some decent pick up for only 101hp but very light and nimble. Great build quality and spacious. Low maintenance. All you have to do is oil change oil change and oil change.

Scion Xa — For a little car it is very solid. I have drive a Ford Fiesta, Fiat Palio, Fiat Uno, VW Golf and this one is the best. Its zippy, fuel efficient, fun and good to look at. And best of all, in 2 years it has only lost $2000 off its retail value!!

Girls Just Want To Have Fun — The car is fun to drive overall, but the handling could definitely do with improving. I must say that I am spoiled with my previous car being a MINI Cooper S and that had amazing everything! But overall, I am happy with this car. It does 38mpg and is good to run. It has some fun features and I can definitely personalize it which is a plus.

Oooo La La — I LOOOOVE this car. It gets fantastic gas mielage- averaging at least 30 mpg! I loved it from the first moment I saw it. Her name is Darling Darla and she is a DIVA! She is sooo much fun to drive. She handles like a dream and can scoot into ANY space, no matter how the idiots in the surrounding spaces have parked.

Not That Bad A Car... By Matt

This is a very easy and fun car to upkeep. it doesn't have lot of power, but if it did, I can't say I would be here. It's a sharp looking car but it's on the cheap side when it comes to the build. ... Read More
