"We purchased this car 10 years ago to be a reliable inexpensive vehicle to use running around town. It has proven itself to be just that. I would purchase it again for the same use."

Owned since new - never a problem!

"At the time we ordered our XA, it was the best deal around for all the included standard features that would have priced us out of other comparable cars. The only added option we went for was fog lights, because they look pretty snazzy! We also opted for the 5 speed when we ordered it and I think that was the right choice. It adds pep and zip and makes this little car really fun to drive. It also helped in the Minnesota snow to be able to quick change gears and avoid getting stuck. Also, I think when compared to the available automatic, it could get slightly better mileage. We kept up 5000 mile service religiously and it really paid off. Other than brake and tire service, nothing major has been needed. The fact that Scion was new (in 2005) but essentially a Toyota made this a smart choice. I cringe that we actually considered Daewoo when we were comparison shopping for new cars!! It is a bit sad that the XA was discontinued a few years later, but excellent that Scion continues."

This car has been reliable, affordable and great

"I really like that the Scion XA is so compact and yet feels so spacious. It is super easy to park in urban areas. It can fit in spots that average sized, non-hatchback cars cannot. It gets pretty good gas mileage and has been fairly low maintenance thus far. I also really love the radio/CD controls on the steering wheel. I bought this car brand new for about $13,000. I think it is a great value."

LOVE this car!

"I bought this car new in 2005 and I have put a fair amount of miles on it. The only reason I would ever sell it is to get something larger. This runs like a top. I have never had one issue with it and I would recommend it as a used car for anyone looking for an economical, reliable fun car to drive."
