My old civic is not reliable now and I want to replace it. My budget is limited and I focus on the basic XB Automatic model. I checked XB prices shared by others from autopriceshare and one local dealer matches this price($17529).
If anyone just purchased a 2015 Scion XB Automatic, could you share your opinions about this price? is it a fair price? One more question, should I prepare snow tires or chains for XB?

Scion's official policy is No Haggle and to sell for the list price. That said, if they want to move (sell) the car, they will deal. Since the current xB is a dated design, there may be some room to negotiate. I'd get quotes from multiple dealers and go in being prepared to walk out. Don't let them take your Civic keys away until you sign. Good luck!

Truecar.Com has it at $18300 so it looks like you have a good offer if you're buying it in the States.

I live in the northeast so I definitely deal with a good amount of snow, so far with my manual transmission xB2.5 with stock tires and springs I found it to be fine in all types of snow, of course I take it slow, and haven't felt a need for winter or studded tires.

If you choose the xB for your next car I'm sure you'll love it, I do, yes the power train, mpg & gen is dated, but I feel the overall performance, reliability, utility of it fairs very well against most others in its class.

Good luck.

Civics definitely hold their value also, I agree Brickpig they need to move the car and will work with you. I saved a lot buying a brand new leftover and even had them throw in an upgraded hu and factory 16s..

The one thing about our b's is that they haven't changed that much over the years,so if you find a '14 model on the lot, the price will more attractive than a new model to move it.

That's a great price ,,,BUT the other "game" they play is dealer fees ....down here in Florida expect about $700 on top of what you pay just for dealership fees ..plus then they get you for dealer installed options like tint, dealer prep, undercoating, safety checks and inspections ????? Then they get you for title transfer, dealer processing fees etc. etc. So don't be sold on the sticker price alone so much as the deal "out the door " price with all these fees added to the bottom line .
