Could be a good vehicle, but right now it is not
The 2 square front grille pieces fell out.
The front bumper lip cracked when I bumped into snow.
The screw in the R rear wheel well snapped, and the bumper sticks out now, from when I backed out of the driveway and bumped into snow left over from after the plow drives by on the street.
The hatch release on the back of the car snapped in half, and was left dangling by wires when I tried using it on a cold morning.
I was not comfortable while driving to work, so I shifted my weight placing my elbow on the arm rest/center console. When I applied pressure to the arm rest/center console, the plastic and magnet inside broke.
The windshield has cracked very easily.
On the passenger side of the car, it filled up with water and I don't know where it came from. I had to strip the panels and carpeting off, and push out the rubber plugs in the bottom of the floor to drain the water out.
The car handles poorly in the snow.
Some of the things that have gone wrong with my car are common things that happen with the xB. Look them up for yourself, and don't take my word for it.
I would not buy another one.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
