#844 of 1370 Front Bumper/Security System
May 10, 2004 (8:33 pm)
I just ordered a 2005 Scion xB. I'm a little worried about the front bumper being so low. It seems like it will be so easy to damage it on a curb. Are there any current owners who have had a problem with this.
The Scion Security system was the only option I chose, but I'm wondering how good it is. Car theft is very high where I live, so I do need something.

Yes, the only blemishes on my xB are the scuffs and scratches on the lower front spoiler.

Since you're all new scion xB owners, what prices have you paid? have you been able to negotiate? if able to negotiate, what type of wiggle room do you have between invoice and msrp?

There is no "wiggle room"
They are all sold at a fixed price.
All deals are forwarded to Scion HQ for review and any dealer playing games can lose their franchise.

I was told by the dealer when I first looked at the Scion xB that it was a no-haggle deal. I was skeptical, but some searching on the internet convinced me that this is really how it is supposed to work. There was some guy on scionlife.com who claimed he got a better deal by getting more for his trade-in that it was worth and was proud of himself for driving a hard bargain. I wonder about that though. In my area, Scion xB's are very popular, and I can't even get one until August, so what incentive would the dealer have? Personally, I hope others like the no-haggle way of buying a car as much as I did, so even more cars will be sold that way.

where do you live in that the xb has one wait listed for 3.5 months?
do you know the difference between the '04 and '05 x-b's?

Given the way Scions are sold, the only negotiating point is on a trade if you have one. I have read posts here and on other sites that their is some room to bargain on accessories, but since I bought none I can't really know.
