Great Car To Get You Around In Style And Not Dish Out An Arm And A Leg For Gas. — MY car inspires thought. You see a Civic drive by and shrug. You see my car drive by and you have to think if you like it or not. No matter what it's in your head. Plus if you want you can wear a tophat inside.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Roomy, fuel economic, different

Cons: Tiny engine with heavy curb weight, toaster on wheels

I Am Keeping It. — I love the fuel economy and the room, as well as its ugly duckling looks. It fits me better than most cars do, and I got the R.S. 4.0, so it's a ballin' color to own (for the ladies!). The optional footlights they had are in mine as well, so if you can find one with those and the Pioneer sound system, buy it!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: They're distictive with lots of room.

Cons: tC is faster and prettier

Great Car For Someone Looking To Buy An Affordable Car While Riding In Unique Style. — Its a box; but on the other hand its good box. Great use of space and very unique styling. I loved the lights inside the car that could be changed between 7 different colors. The sound system was quite premium for the class. Comfort was great considering the class and this model sat high up like an SUV.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Because its just fun to be seen in.

Cons: Safety ratings are poor.

Pros: Copper Penny Color!

Cons: Lack of acceleration.

Wouldn't Part With It!! Great Little Secret Of The Car World! — Bought my Scion XB 2006 about a month ago. Have already taken it on vacation to the mountains and it got 32+ MPG all the way. Drives like a sports car with the room or a big van inside! We packed for 3 adults plus ice chest and had plenty of room left. Love the shape, although I will never be able to hide out again! My grandkids love the DVD players in the head rests and they work beautifully. Bought this in pisteen condition so feel very lucky to have found it from a private owner. Still getting 32+ during everyday driving!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great Gas mileage, unique appearance, green envy color, handling, air circulation inside, great for handicap folks to get in and out of

Cons: Haven't found one yet!

Pure Driving — Its not a performance car; but I drive in urban areas. It goes as fast as my 400 horsepower GTO in real world situations. Why pay for the gas and horsepower to not use it (or so I found out). It is designed with getting you from point A to point B as its sole goal. It yields nothing to style or luxury. Pure automobile. No living-room couch, no entertainment center, no V8 with zoomies. Its the perfect car for actually going somewhere. That being said. It does wind up a bit towards 65mph as if It wanted a 6th gear. Lacking cruise control, its hard for me to keep it at 70 (about 4k rpm) without watching the speedometer. Just sounds too wound out. But the speed limit is 55 here and rarely moving faster than 35.. so .. GTG. Its been 3 years, not a single trip to the shop. It's cost me exactly gas and oil to run it. Its not a man-mobile, but I feel so smart driving something that is so smartly designed. Still... not feeling like a stud climbing out of it; usually have kids in tow proving my manhood... so.. good enough. Actually just ordered the 2009 XB series 6 as I could not think of a better vehicle to replace the wife's 2door.

Pros: Everything you need/nothing you don't

Cons: No Cruise control and no 6th gear makes high speed travel a bit uncomfortable.
