    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!

    Its A Box, Lots Of Room.....surprisingly! — Excellent gas mileage, decent performance, and very economical. i have had 4 of my friends plus me in the car and it still operates the same. The VVT-i engine is surprisingly peppy. I bought this car specificly for looks and gas mileage and it is money well spent. Now that gas is 4.00 a gallon i couldnt be happier on my choice one year ago.

    Pros: gas mileage, apperance, resell value, and its a toyota!

    Cons: Sound levels at highway speeds, power.

    Solid And Roomy — pretty nice if you are looking for a nice interior with great audio and no rattles and noises

    Pros: great pioneer audio system, very reliable, good performance from the factory and nice interior...

    Cons: no cruise control, and i wish i had gotten the standard, not really a con, the auto tranny works great,  just a personal preference...

    Everything A College Student Needs. — Great car, it's fun to drive and it is quite unique. I have wanted one ever since I first saw the Scion Concept car and as soon as I turned 16 and got my license I was dreaming of when I could get one. Now 32,000+ miles later I am still enjoying my box.

    Pros: Great gas mileage, plenty of people room, enough storage for an entire dorm room worth of stuff.

    Cons: Slow; not a performance machine by any stretch.

    This Car Is Awesome! — Ok. It might be ugly and remind you of a refrigerator or a toaster, but this little thing can get up. We've got the tires, the exhaust, the rims, the system. Everything. The only thing it's missing, and this will be added soon enough, is the turbo. And it's a 5-speed manual. For being so small, it's got some pretty big balls.

    Pros: Lots of room. Tight turning radius. Phenomenal handling.

    Cons: No cruise control, and the aftermarket plug-in is on recall.

    The Ugly Xb — It's almost a shame that my family even owned this car. My dad sort of brought it home one day because he got a really great deal on it and we just accepted that it was the new car.

    Pros: Good Gas Milage;

    Cons: Ugly; Useless; Not very big
