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.
