Mine's hitting 130k soon. Still have OEM clutch that slips almost constantly lol but other than that, she runs nice!

Low & Slow is where it's at!

Just hit 130k myself. Other than a few brake replacements and a few fenderbenders, nothing major.

Still love driving my xA, and I'm sad that they don't make it anymore. It's small enough to fit like a glove, but it's got ridiculous amounts of headspace. I also like how responsive it is, and the mileage is of course no slouch.

I'll keep this thing alive as long as I'm able. ^^d

Wife has an 04 automatic she loves and has had it for about a year now

I love the car so much I just picked up an 04 myself...5 speed silver with sunroof! Both cars have around 130k but run great! so just breaking in

Wife's needed quite a few parts when we got it with around 120k...brakes, belts, tuneup, and now exhaust...Lived in New Hampshire for all its life so the rust got to the exhaust

Mine looks to be almost rust free...except it has rear wheel rust only on one side which is odd because there is no rust anywhere else...I need to handle that soon before it eats everything...

I saw my old xA last weekend.

Filthy and covered in stickers. Made me sad.

I still have some xA/Scion stuff to get rid of, though: https://www.scionlife.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=225346

Still have my 2006 xA. It now has almost 81,000 miles and still runs and drives as good as new. I plan to keep it as long as it continues to be reliable and cheap to keep. I keep it serviced and clean so I hope that will be many more years!

We have an '04 xA with 117k miles. We purchased it used last year with about 109k. Just replaced the engine. During the replacement we noticed that the blown engine wasn't the original. Also, the car had been in some kind of accident requiring work to be done on the whole front end of the car. <sigh> Anyhow, we really like the car.

Oh yes I still have mine! Bought it new in 2005 and have been beating the crap out of it daily ever since. Its a 30 something mile one-way 80 plus mph drive twice a day. Still get 320 miles per tank. Its got like 175000 miles on it now. I will never get rid of it. I will drive it till I die. I will not make any claims about the speed or fastness of it, but I will tell you that twice a day, I am absolutely the fastest car on interstate 24. I may be able to be briefly out-accelerated, but never out-handled. Especially in traffic.

Small, quaint apologies to all those I have passed. There is literally no way for me to remember all of you.

Im just kidding. I drive slow and my xa is nice.

My 2007 Xa 3.0RS just hit 60k! Gone through 2 batteries, 2 sets of brakes, lots of wipers. I just got two new tires on tirerack to replace my front tires back ones got replaced 2 yrs ago. Fresh mobil 1 extended perf oil change too. This week I had to do a redo on my output shaft seal since it was still leaking. I originally had used a non oem part and 8 mnths later it started leaking. So got the toyota part this time. Went ahead and got mobil 1 syn gear oil too. Also replaced front sway bushings since they were rotted out from New England living. Boy do those bushings make a difference on ride quality! geez.

Break fluid is still original and looking clear still. Radiator fluid looks good too.

- Raceland coilovers
- XXR 513s wrapped in Bridgestone Potenza RE760s
- DC Sports front strut bar
- Home made rear strut
- Megan Racing H Brace

Soon to get KSport Kontrol Pro coil overs and a Progress Rear sway bar. Along with OBX-R or Weapon R header and custom exhaust. Repainting this summer hopefully and also in search for oem rear wing if anyone has it.

I still have my black 2006 xA. Bought it brand new in October 2005. No problems with it at all.

Default XA

I still visit occasionally, XA ready to go over 165,000 miles, runs actually better than new, burns no oil at all. Start my spring work schedule soon, travel up and down the east coast, at 57 cents a mile, she is a money making machine. In the 9 years I have owned the XA, I figure I have collected $44,000 in mileage. Not bad for a $14,060 investment. The only new car I have ever bought, plan to use for the next 3 years to retirement.

I still have my xA! Bought it brand new in 05 now I have 197000+ miles on it, and it does the job still. Currently looking into getting the car wrapped in carbon black on the hood, roof, and rear wing. Love the car and now that it's considered rare, love it even more!!!!
