2005 Scion xA 1.5L
They never should have stopped building the xA
Just recently bought this vehicle, and wanted to log its history. Decided this would be a great place, so others could also see for themselves.
Honestly always wanted one, but didn't want to spend for a new one. I got a good deal on this one, and so far I enjoy it very much. The front seats help give the car an awesome comfort when driving, and it's very nimble. I can see why they put a larger engine in the newer model Scions, as it's a little under powered.
I plan to keep this car a number of years. It has a very functional interior, and the mileage is good (33 hwy so far).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Just calculated my city mileage: 24.86. So I've got approx 25/33, which is close to the 27/35 that's normally advertised.

Just wanted to update. Mileage dropped quite noticeably this summer. Using the air conditioning dropped me from combined 29/30 to 25/26.
It's at least a 10% drop.

Adding new update. Replaced plugs, coil, belts and battery.
Battery was probably original, so I wanted to bring it up to speed for the winter.
Plugs and coil were replaced due to poor maintenance by previous owner. Plugs were to be replaced at 30K, but weren't. Stressed coil. Replaced and runs fine.
Replaced belts due to chirping. Found out that 1 of the belts I had replaced after purchase was the wrong one.
Got 75K on her now, and she's running well.
