So, I’ll keep this short. Looking for forum members that have either owned an Xb with high mileage, or have worked on one.
I’m looking to buy a 2008 Scion Xb. I think that was the year of the redesign.
- I’m looking at this particular model because it was HIGHLY recommended by a well known consumer magazine (they recommend the 2008 to 2010 Scions, I believe).
- I’m looking at the 2008 model with high mileage (almost 200k) because it’s what I can afford and there’s one available, and he’s done the maintenance and kept it up.
Here’s what I know.
In the past 6 months to one year – it’s had:
- rebuilt transmission put in
- L + R front axle
- new tires
- rear brakes
- new front coils/struts suspension
Two owners. He’s owned it since 2011. He’s moving back in with his folks and dad has a spare car for him. He doesn’t need this one anymore.
I know that things go wrong with high mileage vehicles. I currently own one. Just looking for anecdotal evidence of people’s experiences with them etc.
Thank you in advance.
