Army rock is more of a tan. Not for me, but not bad looking- esp. with the right accents or on an Army or Marines (military) tribute.
So about Toyota not promoting the Scion brand...
I rarely see tv ads for Scion. I think I have seen one 2 or 3 times during The Daily Show (the Zeus one), but never on a Chicago market station. Chicago is a large market too. Is it just the Midwest being ignored or do the coasts not get ads either?
Well, I disagree; it's not just the colors holding sales back. I see lots of black and silver Mazdas on the road, and for that matter, the teals and powder blues of the Camry and Sonata are very...safe, and those cars sell well....the advent of vinyl siding. You can't change the color of your house every few years with a coat of paint so they make colors that will appeal (at least not offend) anyone.
Don't you think the same is probably true of the auto industry?...
Not that I am saying it's ok though! I like bold colors or colors that are different from most other cars.
Me too, but that very trait is part of the reason the xB's time has passed. Customers are downsizing and car companies are shoving small cars out the door--My point with the kids was the size and practicality in a, relatively small package that is also a BLAST to drive is missing from any existent Scion or xB ads, but that IS the essence of the xB.
... The 72 cubic feet (seats flat) cargo bay in the small package was a HUGE selling point to me.
Now that's eerie, because I was about to say: "I'm not most car buyers; if I were, sedans would not exist."I'm weird and have an odd hatred of sedans as "half-compromised" appliances.
I'll agree to that.:cheers:I like vehicles that do what they are designed for exceptionally well. ...The xB2 IS one of those, by any brand or name.
I agree. I drove my '08 through 5-6 inches of snow and didn't really wish for AWD. It would have been nice, but the car handled the weather just fine, and a drive tunnel would mess up legroom in the back.AWD...eeesh, an extra 4K and -%20 MPG

But it is worth mentioning, because Toyota should have offered the option.
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 !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.
