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...

Good to see your xB having some fun going snowboarding! It looks sweet, great combo with the wheels and coils, and I like the headlight effect with the lugs matching. Nice!

Interesting. I've never seen one out in person but it does look like stock. Why the TRD box? Perhaps they got a TRD version and took of the stock exhaust.

With my xB I have not used higher octane gas, but I highly doubt it. It might not even go up at all.

I don't have perfect data, but I do have a comparison with my previous car. It also used...

That worked for me. I surely would have bought something other than a Toyota/Scion if the xB didn't exist.


I didn't have a problem with the Toyota brand in 2012 or now. I know a lot more about...

Great post. You have to include the xB in there :) (xB1 or both) It sort of created it's own class of vehicle that inspired others from Nissan and Kia.

I actually liked the 2nd gen of the tC more...

I'm just following up here. So far I definitely like the Yokohama Avid Envigors I ended up getting, and the $60 rebate is already spent. They were billed by TireRack reviews as having pretty good wet...

Yeah I can definitely imagine you hating it if you are coming from manuals. My previous 2 cars were also automatics with 4 speeds (though they had more power with 3.8 liter 6 cylinders) and this...

Thanks for your input BrickPig! Good info.

That's funny because the first thing I thought when I saw that picture was Ford Fiesta. It actually looks a bit like the Ford Escape front end too.
