Default Scion XB

I'm looking at buying a Scion XB but want to know if anyone has tried it and what they thought. Tell me what you didn't like about yours.

They're just bargain bin Toyotas with hideous shells on 'em marketed to less-than-savvy 16-21s that want something that looks different.

1984 Ford F150 | 4x2 | 300ci six | granny four | 3.55 rear end | 210K | Brakes shot. Rear drums are doing most of the work. Not fit to drive due to that.
1997 Ford Explorer XLT | 4.0L Vulcan V6 | 5-speed automatic | shift-on-the-fly 4WD | 210,000 miles | Running 95% - Needs brakes on all four corners + bald tires
1989 Ford F150 | 300cid six...again | 5-speed | 4x4 | 160K | Needs brakes done as well. Oi!

When they first came out I was drawn to the boxy styling, and being a larger guy the ample space for all riders was attractive. I've also always had a hatch so the large amount of storage was nice and the decent gas mileage and price were big pluses.

That being said, I really don't like the new more mini van'ish styling and I have seen way to many of them riced out.

Different strokes for different folks guys, not everyone can afford an expensive new car while some still want the security of a manufacturer warranty.
