Took me 2 looks before i decided to for it. First time I saw one was on a sidestreet in Trenton and I thought.' WOW! That looks *cool*.' I saw the Scion emblem on the front, but could not see that it was an xB. A few weeks later I showed up at the Scion dealer to check out an xD, but when I saw the xB I knew that was the car for me.eviljack said:So I been looking at the new xB. I kinda like the old one, but this one I love. Haven't gotten to test drive it yet. Was going to today but was snowing and really didn't want to test drive in the snow. I may still go tomorow and check one out in person.
Do you really *have* to run premium? I guess you do if you mention it. I came off a 2001 Beetle TDI. Talk about cheap to run fuel-wise. The maint. costs started killing me, though, and spacewise it got too small. (3 kids that won't stop growing)eviljack said:I gotta get rid of my ride. Its a 2000 VW Jetta. Got a VR6 and about 200hp with mods. The car is hot and I love it, but its showing its age, and would love to have a warrenty right about now. Plus the cost of premium gas is killing me.
Well, it *is* cheap to get into the basic xB. $16270 with no options (including dealer prep)eviljack said:Having trouble convicing the wife to be that I need a new ride. I got the details worked out and its not gonna hurt the wallet much, but with the upcoming wedding she is kinda skeptical.
What part 'o PA? I'm in Levittown. Mine is basically all stock.eviljack said:So basically I joined the forum so I can get some info on the car and chat to some owners. If anyone is havin a 08xb get together in PA sometime soon let me know. I would love to stop buy and meet some owners and check out the rides.
Gold? Pretty sure that's a concept color, though it may show up. Does look striking.eviljack said:Also one questions I got. Whats the deal with the Yellow xB???? I see it in advertisments everywhere, and even have it in a photo as my wallpaper. However its not a color choice thats avaliable. Whats the deal? Is it going to be a color option for the 09 model year?
Bottom line: Get it. It's a fun car to drive, looks GREAT, is decent on gas and has the Toyota reliability factor.
