82,000 miles on a 2009 in one year. Only oil, tires and brakes at 79,000 miles. Oh, and I wish I had kept a dollar for every gallon of gas I have put in the xB.
No major repairs

2010 sw took delivery July 22nd 2009 20,109 miles no major repairs but its crazy i was getting terrible millage 19-22mpg til about 3,000 miles ago. Now im getting 25-27mpg no performance mods just air inlet added about 5,000 miles ago. Tires will be me a must next spring. I live in pa and drive to nc about 10 times a year. Oh and not to mention the random late night trips to white castle, new york and ocean city its just great knowing i can hop in my car and go. Aside from the pre trip stop at sheetz for gas and free air. I know im happy about my choice with my first new car because out of the 10,000 hwy miles i have put on i have never seen a xb on the side of the road .... well actually i have but there is normally a cop or two behind them. I know I have had my far share of cop trouble. Just about every time in va on I-81 telling me how they dont like my dark taillight, dark windows,dark license plate cover and my air freshener and work badge hanging on my mirror. They say it not illegal but yet they continue to pull me over :D

I bought my 2008 with 13k on it a few weeks ago. I'm sure the mileage will add up more quickly now that its not some old person's grocery getter anymore.
I put about 22k on my '09 BSP in the year that I had it with no major issues.

2008, Scion XB 57,000 miles and my engine's blown.. Have owned 3 toyotas previously and was extremely enthusiastic about my Scion. Boy was I wrong! It is a piece of garbage! Now researching recalls and class action lawsuits.. Finding out this is a dangerous piece of garbage too!

miles on an xB

My son has 160,000 on his '05 automatic. Tires, brakes & oil so far. The underside of this rascal is clean enough to eat off of! Can't figure that one out. Oh, and he has had to put some gas in it......not too much at 36+ MPG!!! Seat getting a little mushy - other than that, it looks about 6 mos old. Only regret is that I didn't buy one of these years ago ---- have spent 7 yrs cramming myself down into a Corolla when I could have been smiling and hopping up into one of these babies with a big grin on my mug. (and, yeah, the Corolla was bullet proof, too - just a poop poor use of space! The xB is a foot shorter than that Corolla was!)

Technically, the xB IS a Corolla . . .
It's model number is AZE-151
That is-
AZ-> engine type-> 2AZ-FE
E-> model designation for the Corolla line
151-> specific version w/in the E-series- indicating 140/150 model Corolla. The 140 is "normal" while the 150 is the "Super Corolla" and has the wider/beefier underpinnings.

Then, there is one of several letters after the 151 indicating the version of xB/Rumion/Rukus inc. trim and engine, etc.

The US-model 09 is an AZE-151L

Yes, thanks for the info.
I've been trying to sort out all the names for the xB. A Corolla model, a bB, a Rukus, and a Rumion ...and there's apparently a smaller version of the xB sold in the far east?

Was surprised to see that they don't sell xB's in Europe.
(I come to this Scion world from 40+ yrs of being a VW nut. VW's have lost me as a customer after spending nearly $20K in 1991 on a Vanagon which was issued with a factory-known fault in the heads. I came to VWs all those yrs ago looking for well engineered, RELIABLE, cheap to operate, well constructed cars with a bit of a different mind-set. That was VW .... Sure sounds like a description of Scions now, eh? So now I'm an xB fan in a big way (we have 2) ...just hope I'm not jumping on board just as Toyota is getting ready to discontinue them!! Will have to buy used ones.....

2008 RS 5.0 with just over 55,000 on it. I had to have the water pump replaced under warranty (nice pink stuff all over the engine bay). Other than that, gas and tires.

The xB, first gen, is a slightly altered bB.
The new bB is the successor to that bB, using a similar shaping to the xB2, but smaller.
Now, our model:
The xB is the US market version
Toyota Corolla Rumion-> Japanese market version
Toyota Rukus-> Australian version

As of yet, those are the only versions sold.

Funny!
My first car I had for any length of time was a 1987 Volkswagen Vanagon, Wolfsburg Ed. (in Wolfram Gray). It died, basically, in early 1999. It's head gasket started to leak (it was "watercooled," though technically was actually a mix of watercooled and air/oil-cooled- at least according to the "experts" on that area).
The xB reminds me quite a bit of that Gen 3 Bus, though smaller. Though the B will actually accelerate w/o being floored and brake without planning ahead (Vanagon was underpowered for it's weight and brakes were too small).

Between the Vanagon (named "Spectre") was my Miata, which I still have as my "other" toy.

I know we're kind of changing the thread topic a little, but I saw this on the UK version of Top Gear the other day and thought it looked alot like our xB's. When I looked it up I found:

Diahatsu Materia

It is the European version of the 2nd gen bB.
