Default Scion Addiction!

Well I have a 2008 Limited edition xB Gold Rush color...Love this car but now putting a new Jasper engine in her... Thinking of buying another low mileage xB to drive in the meantime... Since Scion has gone out of business is it a mistake to stay with a car like this and not move on?

Even though the Scion brand is gone Toyota hasn't gone out of business. The drivetrain is shared with quite a few other Toyota cars, Camry, Rav4, and some Corollas to name a few. The front suspension is still used in some of Toyota's cars as well, Corolla hatchback, Prius V, RAV4, and Lexus CT200h. So no I wouldn't be too worried about the Scion name being gone, there is way too much cross use of parts in Toyota's lines for stuff to become unavailable anytime soon.

The following is true with any car
"If you love the car, drive it until the wheels fall off"

Your concern about the car being out of production can be applied to say the Corolla. It's on generation 12 right now and you can still get stuff from wayyyy backkkk.
Does that mean you should dump your Gen 2 because it isn't made anymore?
If it was a Delorean or Elio, I would be worried, but look how desireable a Delorian is now
