My Scion XB, a great value.

2012 Scion xB Base

I am a large person, almost 400 lbs, and yet I can fit in and drive my XB comfortably. It has good acceleration even though it's only 4 cylinders, has great handling, is easy and fun to drive and gets good mileage. When you pop the hatch behind the back seats it has decent storage and a luggage rack up top.In 7 years the only major part replacements, other than the usual tires brake pads wheel resurfacing and cabin, oil and air filters were the front and rear springs/struts. The only negatives would be no 4 wheel drive and limited towing capacity.


My Scion overall has excellent performance

2012 Scion xB Base

My Scion is great. It drives smoothly most of the time and is decent on gas. It is pretty new and since I have kept up with the maintenance of the car, it runs like new at nearly 100,000 miles. However, it's only problems concern AC and alignment. In the summer, the AC does not work well. Also, the tires need an alignment because the car shakes when braking on the freeway.

A Great Reliable Hatchback

2012 Scion xB Base

My vehicle is reliable and spacious for its size. Great mileage. I enjoy the low maintenance of it and how easy it is to keep the exterior clean. I wish the black interior was easier to maintain with having children, but reveals everything. The technology is not as advance as other cars in its age range, and the USB port is difficult to get access.

2012 Scion Review lots of cargo space

2012 Scion xB Base

This vehicle has been very reliable for us. I love the Bluetooth features and that the rear seats fold flat for transporting large dog crates. It has lots of headroom and the seats are more upright like an SUV than a car so your legs don't go numb on long road trips. I wish it had a navigation feature or a more updated stereo system.

Great torque. Small and quaint yet roomy and strong.

2012 Scion xB Base

It's a fun sporty vehicle with plenty of room for tall and short people. Leg room is awesome and comfortable. Has great torque when needed. Capable of handling hills and valleys with a the ability to handle all types of weather. Would love to buy other Scion vehicles of different series to make the house complete

- Joseph R

Comfort and low cost with lots of features.

2012 Scion xB Base

Reliable. Low gas cost. Roomy. Radio is great and ride is smooth. Haven't had any issues yet, but so far I love it! Cost of maintenance is very low as well, as parts are easily obtainable and upkeep is low. Both of my dogs have loved riding in it as well, as the seats fold down and give them tons of room

How wonderful a scion XB is.

2012 Scion xB Base

My car is great! It is easy to get into. It has lots of room in backseat. We have not had any problems. The seats go down to put things in the back. The only back thing is the shocks. My elderly mother can get in and out. It is comfortable when riding. It is good for older persons that are in a walker

My Scion that I will not replace. Good car to have.

2012 Scion xB Base

I had a major issue with my electrical wiring harness and it almost took about a 9-12 months of in and out of the dealership. They replaced it for free because they could not find the issue. After the replacement there was no issue. I'm the second owner from 1600 miles to 152K my current mileage.

Reliable Comfortable Affordable Cute

2012 Scion xB Base

The gas mileage could have been better, also had a few recalls on the vehicle due to oil consumption and airbags. The vehicle is pretty comfortable but sometimes the ride can be a little rough. Wish the car had a little more horsepower and torque to help merge when you are at higher speeds

- Brandon N

Spacious and roomy car for everyone!

2012 Scion xB Base

So spacious and roomy! Great for single people or families. It's easy to cruise and handle. The brakes are a little touchy but not anything that you cannot get used to. It has good gas mileage also. This is my second car I've had and I hope it'll last me a long time!
