I just bought a 2011 Scion xB, which had 69,000 miles on it. My car before this was a 2008 Toyota Yaris I bought in 2011 (nice symmetry there) that had 68,000 miles on it. Both these vehicles were rated bullet-proof reliable by Consumer Reports, which was a major reason I bought them. i put 76,000 miles on the Yaris without a single thing breaking. I hit a deer, skidded off the road on another occasion, and was backed into or backed into someone else twice. Never a hiccup.
I figured this was a good buy because both cars had the same number of miles, but the Scion DOES have 4 years of age on it over the Yaris when I bought them. The dealer said it was a single-owner car, but who knows? It has little dings here and there, but seems decent.
Anyone have a some experience with Scion xB’s, or good tips on driving older used cars in general? I need some emotional support for a decision I already made! :eek:
