Nothing fancy, just your basic car.

Before people get into my car they always assume it's going to be cramped. However, once inside, they realize how spacious it is! I bought this car in 2012 and it's been very reliable. Very easy to drive and fits in all compact parking spots. The only cons about this car is how thin the bumpers are. You can sit on it and it will dent. Also, when you want to merge into your right lane there is a huge blind spot in the back. I've almost gotten into quite a few accidents because of this. Lastly, the gas tank is very small and I feel I fill up more than necessary for such a small car. In the end, it's a reliable car that isn't too expensive and is easy to take care of.

The Car, The Myth, The Legend: Scion

Overall, my scion is a great car. It is very spacious for a compact car. There is not much to make it special or anything extraordinary. Maybe in the newer models, but I own a 2008, so everything is pretty basic. The car is very fuel efficient. I have taken many long six hour road trips in it and usually only need to stop for gas once. There have been no problems performance wise. The car is very comfortable. The interior is a comfortable fabric that does not get too hot which is great in the Texas summer. The car is very reliable. It has been over ten years since we bought the car new, and it still runs fantastically

Scion xb great car to drive with plenty of room.

I love my car, although I have had some mechanical problems with it I still love to drive it and I would not know what car I would like if I had to buy a new one. I would have picked a different color though. Other than that I love the scion cars. My mechanical problems seem ongoing after having the car for 11 years which is not bad I guess. The big problem was thankfully covered by warranty if it wasn't I wouldn't have kept this car. I still would not know what car I would pick if I had to. I love the boxy kind of car that is not an SUV or minivan.
