My love affair with my wonderful scion xb.

I absolutely love my scion xb. The scion was marketed for younger people, but us "oldsters" are the ones buying it for a lot of reasons, I. E. Ease of getting in and out of it, plenty of legroom, both front and back, ability to let the back seats down and haul "things", plenty of headroom, good gas mileage, the style (it looks like a "vintage foreign" car. It sits up high - however it is small, so it is sometimes hard to find in the parking lot. I use my "alarm" button, on my key when this happens. But then it is also very easy to park, because of it is size. It is almost maintenance free. It is very reliable and comfortable, but sometimes on a rough road, it feels like it does not have any shocks. Also it is a little slow going up a hill, since it is only a 4 cylinder. My granddaughter said she feels like she is driving a golf cart, after the Volvo that she drives. I will never drive another car, so I certainly hope that they continue to make the scion. I am 82 years "young", so I really do not think I'll have to worry about that, since I only have 50, 800 miles on my 2006 scion xb. Blue book states it is value at $5, 500, which is great for a 12 year "young" car. In fact, it looks brand new.

My favorite car. Reliability is a real standard when you own a Toyota.

My car was purchased used, to replace one I bought new. Scion xb is my favorite car that I have owned. I read a review stating that it was the most economical vehicle to own and that was true to my original. Changing oil regularly helps lots and I do it at the dealer so they know what they are looking at. Both cars had the rear handle replaced - original under recall, but the newer one I paid for. When it gets real cold or very wet the check engine lights always come on. Great mileage and awesome on the highways. It is not a luxury car so you feel the road you are on. Very good response on the steering wheel so it is easy to drive and it has anti skid warning. Sitting in the car seems like a van cause the seats seem higher and your legs can bend at the knee plus the windshield seems huge. The seats are cloth and roomy and the newer car has adjustable seat belts so they do not rub the side of your neck. Great radio, CD and great sound. I will never buy anything other than Toyota.

Honest review of the 2006 scion xb.

My scion xb is very low to the ground making it difficult for me as a taller person to get in and out. The rear hatch back is too low and it hurts my back to lift things in and out. There is also not enough space in the hatchback for my needs. The paint began to chip off indicating the paint job was not high quality. The air conditioner is not working indicating the quality of the manufacturer. The shocks are horrible, it is like you can feel every bump on the road when driving. The engine is very small and as such there is not much power especially when the vehicle is full of passengers and cargo. Traveling up steep inclines the car slows down and moose's momentum. The car stereo is broken and the televisions that came mounted into the backs of the seats do not work anymore.
