Wow. . . it's really telling when nobody bothers half your product line is discontinued and nobody cares. Even here at the biggest Scion community in the USA, nobody bothers to comment. According to us, it's not even newsworthy and just. . . Name:  deadhorse.gif

We should protest the scion dumbass. They ____ up in the first place by redesignin away from what it was setup to be.

I am so used to Big corporate caving in on the political pressure of the EPA
to make aerodynamic vehicles to save a few miles to the gallon, I actually expected this.
Seems no manufacturer will stand up and fight for their right to be different and
design a car / truck with unique character knowing the feds will clobber it.

That's why when I saw a 1st generation Scion xB I said better get it quick
they already redesigned it to look like a Soul.
Not as bad as those melted bars of soap with that grotesque
Adolph Hitler Moustache they call a grill, Most of them look like a bust of
Adolph sticking his tong out at you driving down the road.
The scion xB , not so much but there slipping right
along in that direction. They need to leave the Kia Soul alone and let them have their
own look, but the latest Scion xB's are creeping up on the looks of a Soul.

Barn door aerodynamics are hard to get past the EPA standards without good reason.
Just looking cool is NOT a reason, Now ambulances and fire trucks, there good
reasons, Trucks for civilians have more wiggle room also.

Seriously had thoughts of importing the Baja Tuc Tuc 3 wheeler for a wile.
I refuse to drive just another run of the mill melted bar of soap with a moustache.

Too bad SOME Ford Transports fall apart before 60,000 miles; typical transmissions
and motors are $#@! That was another head turner for the fugal me.

If Toyota or Scion stepped up and designed their own version of this
I would be running to the bank!!!!

WAKE UP!! There's enough Americans out their that want a boxy little truck that sips gas!!!
