Default New to Scionlife-Just added a 2004 xA to the family!

Hey all! I just registered with Scionlife so I could post here on the forums for your valuable advice and experiences. We just added a 2004 xA with 87,000mi on it to our family for my high school senior son to drive.
We are all already pretty much in love with this little thing, and we're hoping with a little TLC she'll stay great.

First question is just generally- what are best things I can look for in the xA, and what are things to watch out for and fix? I do think ours needs a motor mount, as it vibrates at idle. But other than that for now, what are some things I should pay attention to right away?
Secondly, could you give advice on where is a good place to get parts, particularly like a salvage yard that specializes? I'm a fan of Saturn VUEs, and I found a Kansas salvage yard that I can get almost anything for my Saturn;
I just have to call and they'll pull it for me. Are there options similar to that for Scion folks?

So far, on eBay I have ordered a replacement headrest (one rear was missing), two ***** for the rear seat pulls, and a drivers side armrest panel, where the switches go. I also needed a windshield wiper switch, as the wipers don't park themselves- they stay stuck in position on the windshield.
You have to time it just right to get them out of the way. I'd like to get a replacement molded carpet and a roof rack, so any advice on those would be great too.

That's a long enough post for now, I think, but I'm looking forward to learning all I can on our cool little car!
