The tranny went out on the wifes 17yr old mini van, gave her my Blazer and bought me a Scion. Ordered mine 10/27/07 and took delivery on the 30th. From Billion Toyota in Sioux Falls, SD.

After getting mine now she wants one if I can put monster truck tires on it. :eek:

Can't wait to take it apart.

try changing the settings on the stereo to SSP xB mode and change it to Feel music mode - you will be surprised at how good it sounds!!

Love the XB though. Blackberry Crush Metallic

TRD Cold Air Intake
TRD 19" Alloy Wheels w/ Toyo Proxes Tires
Rear Spoiler
TRD Quickshifter
Scion Naviagtion

Mods Soon to Add:

Body Kit (as soon as I find one)

The other thing that would be nice is a Turbocharger. Saw one on youtube a while ago but I cant track down who made it. Its probably a $5-8K job though.

xB in Nautical Blue, 5-speed manual. The sole option, that wasn't really offered from Scion's build it yerself feature, was heated front seats.

Delivered on November 20, 2007 from Team Toyata/Scion in Langhors, PA. Didn't get any pressure for extras, the saleman did show me the gamut of options and was fine with me denying it all. We even tossed around the idea of a couple of different sunroofs, but in the end I opted not to take those either. The finance guy tried to sell me the chip protection, LoJack and an extended warranty. After working out a no-interest 18-momth payback deal, I ended up getting the 84 month 75k mile add-on warranty. The one nice thing about it is if I don't use it I get all the money back.



The little button on the side of the driver seat for heat. Down is low, mid is off, up is high.

Hi there!
I'm new to the forum...in fact new to ANY forum :)... I know I'm a coupla decades outside of the "usual" demographic for this car...but I sure like the look of it and am going for a test drive this week...
anyone buy an xb near Burbank, CA? What can I expect out the door for a "basic" automatic without add-ons? Am wondering if the gas mileage is a problem??
Thanks!

welcome LT!

you will find this a pretty friendly and knowledgeable forum...

a base automatic xB w/ premium radio is ~$19,800.00 out the door - mileage is pretty close to stated of 22mpg city / 28mpg highway, depending on how you drive of course :D

and the automatic tranny has a sequential type shift called S-mode that is like driving an auto-stick - really nice!!

Hey, been an '08 xB driver since July, hailing from Delaware. Such a sweet ride. Black sand pearl with some aesthetic improvements, but nothing performancewise yet. Just found the site today. Holla from the east coast!
