    It Works It's Way Into Your Heart. — It gives you something to talk about. SO roomy its incredible. Cheap on gas at 34~mpg. Got it new for about 14-15000...? Performs well and is easy to handle. I think it's fun to drive, just cause I don't have to work hard. Slow acceleration though.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Cheap and fun.

    Cons: Plastic bumpers and hubcaps...

    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: 99% it's all great

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

    Xb — Lots of style, lots of space, and great gas mileage to boot. The 2004 Scion xB is one of the most versatile vehicles available, and it's fun to drive around town. Get one, you will really like it, I know that I do.

    Pros: style, space, versatility, gas mileage

    Cons: low power, rear drum brakes

    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.

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

    Cons: Lack of power

    I'm A Toyota Believer Now. — Performance is on par with the 1.5l engine from the Echo. Build quality is everything you've come to expect from Toyota. Naturally some hate the look. I love it. The cost to own is low what with the 30 miles per gallon and the only failed part so far being the lighter. It's definately fun to drive. Plenty of looks with my custom paint and super rare wheels.

    Pros: The look, versitility, and reliability.

    Cons: Lack of rear cargo area, and low horsepower.

    Compact Is The In Thing — My car is gas efficient because it's very compact (read: small). Though it can easily be run over by a trailer truck, it's the cutest thing ever and fits my personality and lifestyle.

    Economical — good vehicle to drive below 80mph...takes me from point a to point b. my golf bag fits perfectly. alot of leg room and head space in the rear seats. fits 3 people comfortably.

    Pros: european style body

    Cons: a little on the light side, once u get hit, it's over!

    Point A To Point B Car — The Scion is just a bad car in my opinion. It gets good gas mileage, but thats because it doesn't move very fast at all, it has great head and let room, but it feels like its going to tip over in the corners. great car if you just need to get to point a to point b, but not very quickly.

    Owner for 0 years, 0 months

    Miles Driven per Year:5

    Pros: Lots of head room, lots of rear leg room, cool looking tach/speedometer

    Cons: slow, feels like its going to tip over in corners, looks like a toaster.
