2010 Scion xB from North America
More trouble than it's worth
Brakes replaced at 23K miles.
Brakes and rotors replaced again at 40K miles.
Tires all needed to be replaced at 40K miles.
Windshield cracked and had to be replaced.
Bluetooth system is not clear, and the speaker is placed too far from driver, so I have to yell or can't use it at all.
Sound is terrible in the backseat. Unless the radio is on full blast, the rear passengers can hardly hear it.
The car is very roomy for both front and rear passengers. Upholstery is nice quality, as is most everything else inside the car.
I'm not crazy about the display. It has several options to display MPG average, average speed, temp., etc. but you have to switch through them and it takes away the clock if you want to look at the others, so you have cycle back through like a trip odometer. I don't know why they couldn't have displayed all of that at one time.
The car is very low, so the muffler cracked backing out of a driveway, and I haven't bothered to fix it, because it will just happen again, so it rattles constantly.
Also, the car is very loud inside. You can hear all outside noise, and can't really relax in silence.
Overall, I'm pretty disappointed. I'm not used to replacing the brakes so often or having to replace the tires so early in my previous Toyota Corolla.
Plus, the gas mileage is terrible. I do all highway driving, and the best MPG I get is 24. My sister's Honda Pilot gets the same. Pretty sad. I am going to trade this in ASAP.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
