Scion manual sips the gas!

2005 Scion xA 4dr Sdn Manual (Natl)

The Scion is a really cute little car. It's very sharp, and always gets attention. It's also super great on gas! We did end up going with a reduced tire and rim size to help cut down on road noise, but the 17' tires were really attractive on the car. Shifting is smooth, although it sometimes seems the car would love to have a 6th gear.

A great 4 door awesome gas mileage little car

2005 Scion xA 4dr Sdn Manual (Natl)

It is great on gas. Having the 4 doors and hatch make it great for loading and unloading. It is very hard to put in and take out carseats. It is not a good car if you have small children. The problems I've had are the o2 sensors and the starter. If you live in a state that put salt on the roads this car will rust fast.

Economic, fun little car.

2005 Scion xA 4dr Sdn Manual (Natl)

It's a fun little car which seems to last forever. It is very reliable but too small. I don't feel as safe in it as I do with larger cars. The performance is adequate, it is totally reliable, barely comfortable now as it is too small and 'features' are minimal.
