My car has a standard transmission. I ordered it with $5000 in upgrades and extras and it has paid off! It has an heavy duty clutch. I have taught both my daughters how to drive a standard transmission on it and have the original clutch and transmission. The car has 174, 500 miles on and has only one issue with a tie rod breaking. It was covered under warranty. The hatch back handle kept breaking in cold weather and I have replaced 3 times. It finally was recalled. I put in leather seats and they have held up well. The head room is great. The large windows make visibility great. Warning! This vehicle does not travel through deep snow and will get stuck. I love my xb.

I am 29 and still driving my first car. Other than the a/c bring broken, it has over 277, 000 miles and still going strong. It has a lot of sentimental value considering I got my drivers license in that car, took it to college and so on. It has always gotten me to point A to point B. And the only thing I have ever done to the car is regular oil change. Pretty amazing little car. I am ready to move on to a bigger vehicle like a 4x4 SUV.

This is the perfect little car. Tons of space inside if you have kids. I have two kids and we regularly go to the beach and pack heavy no issues. Terrific on gas. Only complaints about it would be teeny tiny tires and I feel like if we were to get hit we would be crushed. Performance is great have put 50000 miles on it in 6 months and literally haven't had a problem. Would definitely recommend.
