I got an email notification so I figured I'd chime in too. I probably came to this site later than most after buying my 2012 xB new, but had a lot of good chats on here. I still love mine too, still going strong with 65K miles on it now. Actually I just sold 3 stock steel wheels and 4 hub caps to another xB owner on Craigslist. A couple years ago I had dented one of my wheels a little on the rim, then bought 4 wheels from a guy on Craigslist who had just bought new and put on new wheels. It was about the same price as buying one new wheel from the Toyota dealer, and this way I would have extras and could sell them. Well I did just sell them on Craigslist for the same price, lol.
My oil was actually near the bottom of the crosshatch on the dipstick just before I got my last oil change. Maybe it was close before though, not sure since I didn't check. I'll check now and then right before next oil change again, if not a few times in between. So far when I checked before, it seemed like I hadn't lost any oil level at all.
That Toyota Juke-competitor does look cool. I wasn't a big fan of the Juke though. It always seemed like the opposite of the xB. How can you make a car with the least amount of interior space compared to how big it is on the outside? It has a big fat front end and a small cabin that slopes down in back. I wonder how the cargo space compares with the back seats down.
I plan to keep my xB a long time yet. No car payment right now! But if I were to buy something today, I might check into Jeeps actually. I never really considered them before, but the Renegade is kind of cool, and the Compass doesn't look like ass anymore. Small SUV still fits what I want/need and I haven't really gotten any richer, lol.
