2005 Scion xA 4 Dr STD HatchbackReview

Mini Mini Van — Its a nice little reliable car. the stereo can really punch if you want and sounds quite nice. It handles extremely well, and for only having 110hp it is nice and peppy.

Pros: Excellent gas mileage with regular.  Nice first minivanish car.  Handles surprisingly well and it stops on a dime.  Is wonderful at keeping the inside temp perfect.  It is a comfortable ride for 4 maybe 5 and can still move and not ride the ground.

Cons: Trunk is a bit small.  It may be peppy but has no real power for high speeds nor serious acceleration.

2005 Scion xA 4 Dr STD Hatchback Review
This car was so cheap the year the gas was between $4-5 a gallon. You could drive on and on before a fill up. Everything on this ride was customize-able, as is the Scion brand. Cruise control would only be installed aftermarket.

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
