2006 Scion xB from North America
Best car ever!
The side panels on the doors seem to be a little weak. The plastic covering the wheel mount in the trunk broke when I was loading a huge futon in the rear.
I totaled my Scion.
I loved my Scion. It was super reliable.
The traction control really helps when trying to make it up the hill by my house. It really improves handling in the rain and snow.
The interior space is AMAZING!!! I had considered buying an SUV until I drove the xB. I am 6'4" and have a good foot of head room. My friends never fight over who gets the front seat because there is practically the same leg room in the back.
Gas mileage was superbe. I averaged 35mpg.
Great car for small families and teens. My family has adopted twin boys and their safety seats fit perfectly in the back.
I totaled my xb Friday night in a front end collision at 45mph. My seat belts worked very well in restraining me, and I barely grazed the air bags. I left the wreck w/o a scratch and was hardly sore the next day.
I owe my life to Toyota for designing such a great little vehicle. The dealership was friendly and always helpful.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I wouldn't say a car with 25,000 miles on the odometer was "super reliable"...it's gotta be driven a LOT further than that without problems to be deemed reliable.

Scion xB 2006. I have it and it's a great car. Mine has 100,000 km and just I changed the pad, and now it's giving me problems with the air conditioner, but it doesn't matter.
Really reliable, really nice.
The only problem is it's too slow accelerating, but it doesn't matter.
