Well, in January I finally got rid of my xB, and I couldn't be happier. I was really disapointed in the gas mileage I was getting. 27 city and 32 hwy. To me this is crap, so I went out and got myself a 2006 VW Jetta TDI. I couldn't be more pleased. Currently, I have a over all fuel economy of 40mpg with 60% city. In city I have been averaging 38mpg and on the hwy I have achieved 49mpg.
The other thing that really bugged me about the xB was how weak the engine was. Well, that is no longer a problem with my TDI. The horsepower may only be 100hp or so but with 177ft-lb of torque you take off like a bat out of hell.
Good riddens to bad rubbish!
I'm glad your happy, i'm getting rid of mine too. However, that torque doesn't make you go like a "bat out of hell". Torque means little, look at trucks with 500tq and 200hp, just throwing random numbers out there but alot of trucks have similar numbers. 3,300lbs+ and they are slllooowww.
You have a 4cyl with only 67hp per liter? You only get 20's for mpg? .....
'98 Integra GSR - 231whp - All motor
'04 Scion Xb - 203whp - Boosted
04' Mini S - full exhaust
96' Camry LE - Stock - FOR SALE
Have fun with the Jetta I guess. but dont make it seem like the jetta is goign to save you money because if you want to mod the VW's your going to be sepending tons of money for aftermarket parts. Just like my brother with his 1.8T GTI. Parts for V dubs are stupid expensive, even for ebay parts.....
