Trade it in for a old porsche Looks like a porsche on the outside, and is like a truck on the inside (*waits to see if anyone realizes the insides of most trucks is small.. not including the pick-up part xD*)

I like the concept, but it is just too darned small. If the road only had these, then it would be ok, but there are too many of those 10MPG hunks of steal out there.

I LIKE IT! But I do have a question. What is it? Maybe I could get one to replace my 15 year old Escort.

Have only had my xB for a month, and I have found that people either "get it" or they don't. No sense in trying to explain it to them (had the same problem with my first Bug back in the early 60's). When my neighbor found that this little box has more head and leg room than his Town car, he stopped laughing and asked how soon they will be available in Ohio.

For what it is, its pretty cool. I like it alot more than the 'Tupperwaremobile' (element), but i would never drive one. At least there isnt any plastic paneling on it, it looks pretty clean, its not that bad. But, sence Andy posted a pic of his pickup, i cant just stand by and not post a pic of my even bigger one I am getting some larger tires, and possibly a small lift, but i will have to use my own money (im in highschool, this is my dads old pickup, he needed a bigger one)

People's attitudes about it just tickle me, and this thread has been no exception Like I said, everyone either loves it or hates it. It's paid for and I can't think of any other car I'd rather have- though that may be influenced by the fact that I have a 350 HP Z-28 also

I like cars. However the Scion is a minivan and not a car. Who cares if it has leg room if your embarrassed to get in and need to park a mile from anywhere your going so no one will see you get in or out. I wonder if they make really dark reflective tinted windows an option so you can't be seen inside of it.

I'm not sure I would drive it, but I did sit in one at an autoshow, and it's outward appearance definitely belies the intereior size. I thought it was quite roomy, in fact. Perfect for carrying planes? Perhaps, if you don't mind the cheers and jeers on the way to the field. There are, however, numerous performance upgrades on the market already for that little thing. Google "scion" and "tuner" and you can see what I mean.

Whatever floats yer boat, man.. oh wait, wrong forum...

Nope. It's actually classed as a 5 door sedan. Embarrassed? Not at all. I quit being embarrassed about what I was driving in high school, it's just part of being a grown up.. you'll see.

You should get on that MTV show "Pimp my Ride"...some gulll-wing doors and 20" rims would REALLY deck it out...

You could always buy a truck and throw that in the back for a spare.

Nice Scion!

I gotta know though, are you within the age demographic that Toyota is trying target?

Variety is the spice of life. Different is cool, and the xB is certainly different.
