My speedy XB by LES on 01/01/2012. Trim: 2010 Scion xB 5-Door Wagon 4-Spd AT, Owned 3 years.
Pros: Great car to zip around town with excellent acceleration when needed to merge into traffic on highway. Getting in and out of vehicle is easy even for my 6 ft tall frame. Plenty of headroom, I can even wear my ball cap. USB and Mini plug for iPod is very useful. USB allows me to control iPod from radio controls. Center located gauges seemed odd at first but after about a week I got used to not having to look through the steering wheel to see speedometer, etc. Auto shifter positioned perfectly along with the E brake handle. Gas mileage is a consistent 24 to 25 mpg in combined city/highway driving.
Cons: Driver and Passenger front seats are uncomfortable and too short under thigh. Optional armrest was a waste of money as it is too small and located at an improper location to use. Plastic everywhere inside, exudes cheapness as an interior. I had to take the center headrest out of backseat for better rearview mirror visibility. Forward visibility is limited by low roof line. The headlights are bright but lamp design causes a sharp cut off line limiting nighttime visibility. No separate clock to view in instrument panel, you must choose between temp, avg mpg, etc.
Overall review: The instrument panel will read in metric or standard so be careful when resetting the mileage or other trip odometers. Slowing down to 20 in a school zone resulted in some unhappy cars behind me actually traveling at 12 mph! My Scion XB is used mostly as a commuter vehicle from home to work and short trips around town and does it with confidence and reliability. I would recommend this vehicle for anyone using it for the same purpose. Road trips, maybe not.
