Econobox — Fun to drive, economical and has lots of room! Easy to work on. Parts are plentiful even aftermarket performance or cosmetic mods. The base package comes with everything you'd want. Power windows, locks, mirrors, a/c, cruise, cd player with mp3 or ipod connect.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good power for a 4-banger with economy

Cons: Don't really have any complaints.

Scion — Performance is mildly disappointing, with extremely lack luster accelleration and top speed. Luckily it looks super bomb so no one cares that it isn't a beast off the line. Even better than the outer appearence is the interior which is simply baller. It maintains good gas mileage, and requires minimal upkeep. Finally, this car is a blast to drive as long as you don't mind people staring.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Everything

Cons: nothing

Mike Siraco's 2008 Scion Xb Review —

Pros: Quick, efficient, FUN 4 cylinder- that is very rare that i would say that. There is enough room in this car for you to move into. I am 6 foot 3 and i can stretch out very nicely, even with my hair spiked i have a ton of headroom. It isn't as outlandish as the old XB. If you are not a first-gen XB enthusiast, you agree that this is a decent looking car-van-thing. Blackberry Crush color is gorgeous. More standard options on this 16,500 dollar car than on any toyota w/ options 21,000 dollars or less. A similarly loaded camry would cost a little more, and it'd be alot less functional. You could use this car as a family car, or as a tuner car... Scion sells an aftermarket SC setup for it!! OUT OF THE DEALERSHIP!!! Its a trooper in snow. ABS and VSC kick ass. Gas milage is alot better than the EPA numbers. 14 gallon tank is sufficient for around 300 miles in stop and go traffic. Cons: The dash is made of some plastic carbon fiber looking stuff, it gets dirty veeeery easily. Backed up into a poll going like 1 foot an hour and put a nasty 2.5 inch crack in my bumper.. i suppose thats a safety feature though When you tell people you own a XB, they think you're talking about the old square with 4 wheels, and you always have to explain it's different. No option for leather... I would have liked that. A few blind spots that take a while to get used to. The 08 XB is perfect for pretty much anyone.

Pros: Fun factor, power, room, capability.

Cons: Plastic interior parts, the fact that it shares a name with the old Echo based XB.

Daihatsu Materia 1.5 Grrrreat — Owning the Daihatsu Materia is the best thing since the toaster... not sliced bread - but very close to the invention of the wheel.... or man stepping onto the moon. With enough space to fit a dead body in the back - you can stretch it even more to fit a cow in!!!

Pros: design

Cons: smallish engine

Me And My Dad — I think my car is great!!!!! it's performance is great, it might not be the fastest but it can hang. It is a easy car to own and customize to fit you. this is a great car to drive you can fit a lot of people in it and still have room.

Pros: Cool, Great sound system, awsome rims, and a kick ass paint job

Cons: none

The Scion Xb! —

This car is really more than what it seems! If you you've tried out one of the older xBs it would completely discourage you in trying the new ones. Don't let it fool you! this is a total upgrade from the previous xBs and packs loads of power (157 hp, and if that not enough, put a TRD Supercharger which brings it up to about 210 hp!). This xB runs on a completely different chassis and the engine has increased in .9 liters in size(2.4 in-line 4 DOHC 16-valve vvt-i). The Toyota Camry, a medium to full size sedan, uses this same engine! This xB also runs on a five speed manual trans and makes the car feel really sporty! I get an average 27 mpg (which is not bad for a car that has little aerodynamics). Many of the standard features you find on the xB can be found on many European cars (led turn signals on outside mirrors, led third brake light, bi-xenon headlights, Pioneer premium audio which sounds GREAT, 4 disc brakes [try finding that on a 08' civic!] and a really stylish look that catches the eye inside and out). Other than 2 oil changes and tire rotations I have not done any major maintenance to the car and have avoided many accidents thanks to my brakes! (people in Orlando drive like crap, just an FYI). All in all I always look forward to driving my xB because it is just an amazing car, no other way to put it! Less than $20,000 (even the release edition!)

Pros: Performance, apperance, reliable

Cons: Door jams get really dirty after a few wet days
