#1340 of 1370 "Boom Tube" question
Jan 26, 2007 (10:22 pm)
My friend has an xB that came with a boom tube in the back. It makes a HUGE difference in the sound. I have also noticed his Scion "Pioneer" cd player has a button or two in different places.
My questions are: Are there different models of the cd players for the xB's?
Or does his sound THAT much better and seem to have that much more power solely based on the TUBE?
The xB's that come with the tubes do they also come with amps or something? Because his xB Pioneer sounds A HELL of a lot louder than mine, hard to believe it's based on the tube alone. And does the dealer install now after I bought it? (Just bought it a week ago:)

if you want more power, just wait until April... Toyota finally had an official press release and states that the new xB with a 2.4L engine should hit the showroom in late spring. No official date yet, no official price yet, but there are plenty of pics to see.
#1345 of 1370 Safety or malfunction
Sep 04, 2007 (8:23 pm)
I was coasting down a hill for about a half a mile when my scion xb shut off. Now during the coasting i didnt touch the break, clutch, or gas pedal. I was also cruising at an avg. speed of about 55. when i reach the about a half a mile every time the car shuts off. Now is this a malfunction or a safety feature??

I just converted to the 195 60 15 size and it rides much better. Having said that, about anything is better than the Goodyear tires that came on it.
#1348 of 1370 05 xb factory warranty
Dec 19, 2007 (2:51 pm)
i'm trying to get a clear answer but it's tough. is 3 year/36k all there is? or is there a longer powertrain warranty standard?
i'm considering buying an 05 with only 6k miles but 'as-is' at a dealer. original owner bought it in sept. 04, so the three years are up. if it's completely uncovered i won't get it, but if it is, i might. when i went to test drive it, the battery was dead, but it recharged enough after a 10-minute drive to restart.
experian autocheck shows no odo issues. dealer has it marked at $13,990 but i'd offer 10,500, maybe 11. it's been sitting on his lot in long beach, ca., a couple months at least.
thanks for any and all help,

The comp coverage is 3yr/36,000 miles but the powertrain is 5 years 60,000 miles
you also get a factory extended as well
