You'll Like The 2009 Scion xB If...

If you want a versatile four-door car that is easily customizable, comes with loads of standard features and is affordable, the xB is a great choice. With 60/40 fold-flat rear seats and 21.7 cubic feet of cargo space, it could also be ideal for those with a small family or simply lots of stuff.

Compact while feeling spacious.

The scion xb is really reliable. I have never had any problems. The only work that has been done is oil changes and new batteries which is normal. The back seat is very comfortable and spacious which is nice for carpooling, storage, and housing pets during a long trip. I especially love the trunk because it is accessible and at a comfortable height for lifting things in and out such as groceries. I drive this vehicle to and from work and running errands. Since I do not have children yet, this is the perfect compact vehicle that still feels spacious. I will most likely upgrade to a larger vehicle once I start a family though.

This vehicle is not built for comfort on long drives. The seats are narrow and the console very confining. The armrest on the driver's seat isn't worth the material it's made from. It is too low to be of any use. Initially we had a problem with the breaks. They wore out very quickly, much faster than they should considering the vehicle has a manual transmission. The dealer service department was no help when this was reported. I'll never buy another Toyota product.

Summary:
Toyota is recalling certain model year 2007-2009 Camry, Camry Hybrid, RAV4, Corolla, Corolla Matrix, Tundra, Sequoia, Highlander, Highlander Hybrid, Yaris, Scion xB, Scion xD and Pontiac Vibe vehicles.

Remedy:
Toyota will notify its owners, and dealers will inspect the switch and apply a special grease that inhibits heat build up or replace any switch damaged by the defect, free of charge.

General Motors will contact the Pontiac Vibe owners affected by this recall and GM dealers will inspect and repair switches as necessary. Those owners may contact Pontiac Customer Care at 1-800-762-2737.
