"I've had this car for about 1.5 years. Gas mileage to and from work, mixed city/hwy, averages 34. On the negatives, the steering wheel is a little short and no cruise control. It also developed a rattle in the front passenger door -- after the warranty ran out. Otherwise, I think it is a great little big car."
"I get 35 mpg and love the smooth ride. The styling is so distinctive and I love to see other xBs on the road.
The seating is roomy and plush. It handles well on the road and is quiet inside. The sound system is great and the standard privacy windows keep the car cool even in California summer heat.
The dash is easy to read but the tachometer would be easier to read with a light background like the speedometer.
I was sad to see the 2008 xB has a bigger engine that gets lower mpg. I wish Scion would go back to the original configuration because my husband and I think the original is a far superior and winning car."
