My Box after a little makeover

"I am the only owner my Box has had I purchased it in January 2006. I have raised my 4 kids in it and now my grandson ride with me. It has been efficient and very economical, I can still fill it with $25 to $32 depending how gas is and I run it every day an average of 20 to 35 miles. The only issue I have had is the back windows stopped working around 6 years ago and the ac blower that went bad last year something that I fixed myself with $40 for the fan and Youtube to guide me but other then that all I have had to do to the car is the typical services required. Oh!and recently that I gave it a fresh new paint job the old paint was looking a bit sad. So over all I believe it is an awesome car. ;)"

"this car is one of the best i have ever purchased, and i have owned at least 30 different vehicles from corvettes to lifted trucks and now that my 2004 xb has 175000 miles and still runs great, I'm thinking about buying another one. I get 25-28 mpg in the city use 91 octane and never have to get a tune up!!! I change my tires more than my oil if that tells you anything. If you are considering an xb I would say SMART, DO IT! Saves gas and holds lots of cargo and this is the small xb, holds my mountain bike inside no problem."

BUY IT!

"We purchased from original owner,with 90k.We now have 135k.Reliable,fun,easy to get in,easy to get out,easy parking,30 MPG in town,32 MPG highway.The 5 years we've owned,general maintenance:oil changes,tires,brakes,transmission fluid drain&fill,tune-up,a battery,that is it.We are not on a "first name basis" with our mechanic,because the "Toaster" is so reliable!I even folded down the back seats,and loaded a washer & dryer in it.I was so impressed with my first one, Camo Green,I purchased 3 more.Salsa Red Pearl,Polar White,& Thunder Cloud Metallic"

"Bought this car not too long ago. I fell in love with it because it was the newest "Toyota" built vehicle at the dealership with the best value. I also wanted something "out of the ordinary" from your everyday car. Always had a Toyota growing up. They're wonderful vehicles. With the Scion, I get the room of an SUV but I get around 40-42 MPG. I spend $21-26 a week to fill my tank. But I mostly do freeway commuting. (50 miles a day)"

"I bought this car 7 years ago, and it has been perfect for me. I'm a student, and drive a lot both for work and for school. This little gem has kept up with me every step of the way, and at almost 190,000 miles, it's still chugging! Very reliable, good quality for the money, and the mileage is great. Plus you can fit an alarming amount of stuff in it! I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a not-too-flashy, dependable vehicle."
