The Toaster — I like it fine. Very cool factor, better design than later models. Easy to customize with lots of accessories available. Fits lots of cargo with rear seats folded flat. Typical Toyota construction quality. Pretty good on gas with good pickup, mine is a stick.

Pros

Excellent car for teen drivers, or those drivers who are looking for a smooth, fashionable ride. Great for city and highway, this scion is a gem.

Cons

No cruise control

Boxy But Dependable And Safe! — I've loved this car since the first day I bought it. It has been very reliable and dependable throughout the years, making getting around cities an absolute breeze. Safe, yet tough, this Scion xB is fashionable and cool, yet sophisticated and easily maintained.

Very Good, Useful Car — Living in the Catskills, I call it my "box turtle" because that is how much ground clearance it has - not much more than a turtle has. Fine in Spring, Summer and Fall but it is not really built for Winter conditions. Where snow and ice has piled up it is easy to get the frame perched on hard ice because of such a lack of clearance and only two wheel drive. But studs in the tires does help.

Incredible Custom Show Car — The fuel economy was great. The handling was very zippy. The way cool factor was awesome. The custom two tone paint job, custom two tone leather, lowered suspension and 18" wheels and tires, Bluetooth DVD, TRD exhaust, twin euro air horns, barbed wire pin striping with matching stitching on seats and door panels, carbon fiber door pillars, roof mounted rear spoiler and custom aluminum pedals and shifter made it into a true show car.

Great Fun Ride, We Each Have One! — I can not say enough about this car. I go for practical, dependable, inexpensive to run. I run a lot, putting many miles on my vehicles. I usually own them for many years and take care of them. This one has repaid me by not breaking down, falling apart, or requiring anything more than regular oil changes, a few (very few) brakes and windshield wipers. I would buy another if we needed a third. (Yes we own two).

Pros

Great gas mileage, really easy to park and drive almost no blind-spots, fun car to drive just zips around town.

Cons

Would love the car to have more power, but with that being said the car really flies on the Hwy. Before you know it your zipping along at 80 mph.

We Really Love That Little Car And Are Sad To Goodbye. — Really a great car I think it has that same status that a VW Bug had at the time groundbreaking. A car that just goes and goes, servicing is really inexpensive and for the money there is'nt a better car out there. It can seat 5 easily and has room to spare. If they made an all wheel drive version with a little more power we would buy another one.

Pros

I love the seats.  It is like sitting in a chair.  It is comfortable and you can see everything around you.  I am going to miss the radio functions that are built into the steering wheel.  

Cons

It is not as large as I need.  It doesn't work for a large family.

Sharp Little Car. — I have loved this car from day 1. I just wish it was big enough to grow with my family. I really don't have anything bad to say about it. Being a dark car in SC it can get hot inside but the AC will cool it down quickly.

Great Overall — This car gets great gas mileage, it is very reliable, and has plenty of space. Repairs are very cheap and have rarely ever been necessary. Interior is very comfortable. The handle is very good and driving the vehicle is fun.
