2005 scion xb. Basic model

The 2005 scion xb that I currently drive is very comfortable. Seems very small and compact from the outside, but is actually very spacy on the inside. The car is a basic model therefore it does not have any special features. I love how comfortable it is to drive. Also how well it maneuvers. The car is very reliable, I've owned it for about a 8 months and so have only had to do maintenance work such as brakes and a regular oil change. The car is at 216000 miles and is still running strong. Doesn't not overheat or leak. I did have to refill the air conditioning with freon but that's about it. Over all to travel it is comfortable even though it does not have cruise control.

Scion, the little car that lasts forever.

The car get great mileage. To fill the tank only takes up to 30 to fill it. And gets about 250 miles. The AC is wonky because it only cools when in motion. If sitting for a bit, it will get stale and warm. It is a tad small, so comfort is a little rough. It does long distance well. We drove from Jacksonville to Miami with no issues. Car is sturdy.

Fun vehicle, but some issues

This vehicle is fun to drive and roomy. But, you definitely feel every little bump or dip in the road. Not to mention that the car is obviously far from being aerodynamic because of its square-ish shape. I can fit a lot into the car though. It is easy to maneuver and drive. I honestly love this car and wish it wasn't getting older.

the scion xb is so good on gas mileage.

I love my scion xb. It is roomy! Good gas mileage. It's been a good car it's got me from a to b. As long as you keep your oil changed every three thousand miles you won't have issues out of this car. I'm happy with my purchase of this vehicle. Keep the maintenance up and you will be happy with this car.

Scion xb: the best car ever.

This car is the absolute most comfortable. There are barely no blind spots and it handles wonderfully. The car rides close to the ground but is not too jumpy. It is drives fine in the snow and rain. The only issue is that if it is windy out the car is picked up in the wind (BC it is shaped like a box).

Reliable, gas saver vehicle.

I like that it's a Small, reliable car. Really good for saving gas. I use it every day to drive to work but it is also a good family car since I have a small family. I haven't had this vehicle for a long time yet but I drove it about 1700 miles in 2 days and I can't complain.

Family friendly, reliable vehicle!

I like the fact the it is spacious, reliable and good on gas. I wanted something that was pretty easy to maintain, (meaning affordable maintenance), and could fit a newborn and all the stuff that comes with newborns. It is also a good road trip car too. So far so good!
