"May I just say that my '06 Scion XB is the little engine that could. I can't even believe it! 225,000 miles and still going strong. I haven't had any major issues with it at all - just the expected break pads, battery, tires etc. It's been so reliable - what an amazing value. I need something bigger (I now have a family) or I would purchase this again. You can't go wrong with an XB!"

Greatest decision made!

"This car has been a great car for me. I have had it 10 years and it is still rolling like brand new. The only issue was a manufacturer issue, the back door lock. It still acts a little crazy but it is super effiecient on gas, roomy and reliable. What more can you ask for?"

Pros: "drives like new @ 233,000 mi"

Cons: "did not need traction control. Just a problem."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"The car has everything you need and no extra junk that you don't. 233,000 mi No fluid leaks, No fluids have to be added between oil changes, no shimmies or shakes, brakes perfectly, No hesitation on take off. Everything works except traction control light has light on but does not affect the car in any way. If I could buy a new 2006 like it I would not hesitate. Need I say more?"

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. ;)"

Pros: "great spacious car that will run for decades."

Cons: "cant burn out and smoke the tires too far."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"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."
