I'm agreeing with Jack, I would never have gone with the 2008 Scion xB if I hadn't valued what it had to offer (particularly the rear cargo volume). Since then I've made various adjustments/improvements and I now find it hard to consider a replacement. If it were totaled, I'd be flattened :(! There's just too much it does too well (including being an enjoyable ride). Perhaps Toyota doesn't know what it's doing with the Scon xB, but I'm satisfied it's the most versatile and worthwhile vehicle I've ever owned.
I call BS on pure price, you have to play the game with the saleman and his "manager" just like you do when buying any car. My XB was stickered at 22,500 with all the options it had on it (everything except it was a manual). I played the game and walked away from the saleman, made it to my car when I heard my name being called from the front door. I turned and he offered a new price for the final offer he said. I walked away with my Scion XB stickered at 22,500 for 16,900 and they paid the taxes, tags, and title.
Interesting, back in early 2008, I selected two "factory" options (roof spoiler and rear bumper applique) and my price was consistent with "True Pricing", but you're suggesting that if I'd drawn a line, I'd have gotten better -- very interesting :)!
