I love my scion xa. . . 126, 000 Miles and still going strong!
I take my car in for regular maintenance with a repairman I trust. It has performed well for me since 2004. It is a little rough of a ride (which I am used to but others notice it). If you are pumping gas, you must hold the nozzle. . . You cannot just rest it in and let it self pump - the nozzle will not stay in. It is the best car for the money.
