Very Good, Although I Would Probably Buy A Matrix Instead. — It was very good overall but not very good if you live in a hilly area. Lack of cruise control made it tiring on long trips, and because it was so boxy the wind would make it move around. Great if you live in the city.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good on gas, easy to park, very reliable

Cons: Not good on hills or long trips

Very Satisfied — I like my car because its reliable, good on gas, and cheap to maintain... something i could never say about the Pontiac i owned. This car lives up to its Toyota name. Its lack of power makes it fun to drive too... drive it hard and not break any laws. :)

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Space and Attention

Cons: Lack of Power

Fun Car To Drive — This is a fun car to drive. Don't be misled that it is a performance vehicle because it isn't. There is enough cargo space for daily things but not like an SUV. It is deceptively roomy inside and can handle four full size adults with ease. Its not very powerful but its size doesn't need it, besides it gets great fuel mileage.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Its a fun car to drive. Everyone that borrows it comes back with a smile on their face.

Cons: Not very powerful but that doesn't really mater

Great Car For The Money. Save On Gasoline And Bring All Your Friends With You. — Love this car! You can zip all over town and not feel guilty. Great gas milage. Fit all your friends or whatever your hauling easily. Cute all around appearance. Make sure to get the manual transmission (for the extra zippiness) and upgrade all the performance to get more bang for your buck.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: cute, fun, spacious for a little car, cheap

Cons: noisy & bumpy on the highway, tight suspension can be painful on long trips

The Biggest Small Car Around — great car . . . tons of room on the inside. this is THE ONLY small car that I would ever own. Maintenance costs have been ridiculously low . .. 120K miles passed until we did the brakes for the first time. the two things that would make this car perfect are 1) cruise control and 2) one more gear on the top end so it wouldn't be revving so high cruising at 80 . . .

Pros: comfort, utility, ugly enough to be cool

Cons: nothing bad to say . . .

Xb Is God's Whip — it has surprising pick up for 108 hp. the engine is a little noisy. it has the smooth shifting that Toyotas are famous for. tons of room inside yet small enough to park anywhere. it hardly burns any gas and is fun to drive.

Pros: driving, fuel economy, space

Cons: cabin noise

2005 Scion Xb: Strive 2b Different — I love my box. Performance - good acceleration, sensative braking, handles like a dream, very responsive to driver input. Build Quality - Just don't crash. Not very strong or safe in an accident. Appearance - Boxy, but thats why you got it right? Cost of Ownership - Maintenance is pretty cheap on this car. Gas mileage is great compared to some other cars on the market. Usually you won't have to fill up more than once or twice a week depending on the price of gas. Fun Factor - Extremely fun to drive. Definitely fun in the canyons. I would recommend this car to a friend because it gets great gas mileage, it's really fun to drive, and it's quick. Scion xB: Strive 2B Different

Pros: Quick, Fun, Good Gas Mileage

Cons: Weak Structurally

More Bang For Your Buck! — Gets the best gas mileage ever! Roomy yet compact. Manual tranny with 5 speeds has enough get up and go to blow by 'performance' vehicles when necessary

Pros: It's cute and small like me!

Cons: I only own one of them!
