It is an awesome family car. With lots of space and safety features.

2009 Scion xB 5dr Wgn Auto (Natl)

I really love my scion, xb. I have a family of four and it has been perfect for two little ones, who both need car seats. The trunk has tons of room for strollers, groceries, and anything else that our busy family needs it for. I have had only minor problems. Such as normal maintenance. I have had to have new brake pads for front and back. They seem to squeak more than other cars I've had in the past. I do love how a light comes on when it is time for an oil change. It helps to keep me up to date with that. I've had a recall for the passenger side air bag. I haven't had that looked at just yet, but I am in the process of getting it taken care of. Everything will be free of charge which is awesome. My car has kept me and my family safe for over two years now. I am very happy with our purchase of the scion, xb.

2009 Scion XB: The Car That is Quite Overlooked.

2009 Scion xB 5dr Wgn Auto (Natl)

I have had zero problems with this vehicle. Keeping maintenance on the vehicle is simple and easy. Gas Mileage is good considering it's half of an SUV. Room in the front and back is spacious and not stuffy like other makes and models. The seats are comfortable and easy to adjust, so no problems there. I highly recommend this vehicle for a musician (like myself who travels often out of state), a mom looking for something to transport a family of 3 or 4, or just a college student commuting to and from school or work.

It is incredibly spacious and a great ride.

2009 Scion xB 5dr Wgn Auto (Natl)

I have never had any mechanical issues with the vehicle and I have over 100k miles on it. It is, highly reliable and spacious. The only two complaints I have are that the vehicle does suffer from aggressive oil consumption. However of you are changing your oil when the vehicle tells you to, it is not a problem. The other issue is that for a four cyl engine it only get about 28 miles to the gallon which is fairly poor when compared to newer 4 cyl vehicles.

Great leg room all around the car. The truck is also great for storage.

2009 Scion xB 5dr Wgn Auto (Natl)

It has a lot of legroom in front and in back. The back seats go down so it makes it a great car to go camping to store items. The feel for when I drive it is great! The brakes work well and the air conditioning and heating is also awesome! I do not like how the previous owner changed the radio system to a later model but it is not a big deal overall.

Great buy for longevity'do it

2009 Scion xB 5dr Wgn Auto (Natl)

It's not the smoothest ride but I like the space and the leather has held up. No major issues and it's 10 years old at this point. I have had issues with the tires but very minor. The Toyota dealership has been great to work with also and I've moved a few times so that's good. All in all I would definitely recommend getting one

2009 scion xb. Not a bad car for a starter family or single person.

2009 Scion xB 5dr Wgn Auto (Natl)

The vehicle is a little small for my liking. It is fuel efficient and overall has been relatively reliable. The cars air conditioning has gone out recently but has 198000 miles on it all done by our family. The tires always seem to wear unevenly even if you have the tires rotated and balanced on a regular basis.

The Inside is great and spacious but you'll be low to the ground for sure.

2009 Scion xB 5dr Wgn Auto (Natl)

It's really low to the ground which can be tricky with bumps and other problems on the ground. And it's not a quite rude. But I do love the space in the car and that it's different from other cars 'a box.' Unfortunately most xb are stick and I didn't get the exact one I wanted because I don't drive stick.

My vehicle is named cloud nine and is very nice when it is dark.

2009 Scion xB 5dr Wgn Auto (Natl)

My vehicle is very spacious and comfortable. I have a brand new engine, but the only problem is the lights on that is actually a recall. The recalls is very serious because it is about the airbag. I love the rims on my car and it is very good on gas. I have never broke down out of nowhere.

Gas saver!! Saves me so much money on gas.

2009 Scion xB 5dr Wgn Auto (Natl)

I love this car because it is very roomy. And everyone is always saying how the like the space in the back. It drives very smooth and saves lots of money on gas. Takes 12 gallons to the tank and takes 25 miles to the gallon. I love this car for long trips to the beach or even road trips.

- A K

The amazing xb is a wonder car.

2009 Scion xB 5dr Wgn Auto (Natl)

The scion xb looks small, but it is extremely roomy inside. It is a very comfortable ride, even for larger people. My 6 foot 300 pound brother test drove the car before purchase and was amazed. The fold down seats make for lots of space for hauling things.
