#860 of 1370 Cruise Control, Xb [cliffy1 #859]
May 15, 2004 (12:38 pm)
As you may know, this vehicle is not available in Wisconsin until June, 2004.
Just recently for the first time on the Scion Site, I got a listing of local Toyota dealers that will also carry the Scion line. I e mailed one regarding "cruise control" and this is what he had to say.
"Typically, the cost to add an after market Cruise Control is around $175-$250. There are a few places that can do that for you."
It's interesting that he is apparently off more than 100%
Again, thank you for your response.
#861 of 1370 Cannot Carry Bikes Inside.

I was hoping that with the rear seats folded down that there would be enough room for 2 bikes.
Please tell me that this can be done.

$350 for installed cruise on Scion xA or xB at the Southeast Scion/Toyota dealers. It is the Toyota accessory cruise control. It is not the same as the factory cruise on Toyota vehicles. It is one stalk with three buttons that is installed on the steering column. I have it on my Tacoma.

I did a search on Ebay for cruise for Scion and there were several of the Toyota units like I have on my Tacoma, and they were from Southeast states Toyota/Scion dealers. Seems that only Southeast distributors has the kit.

#867 of 1370 A/C is Too Weak
May 17, 2004 (9:37 am)
There have been complaints about how weak the air conditioning unit is in hot climates.
Has anyone heard if Toyota plans to improve it in future year models of the xB, or would it need a new and larger engine to handle a more powerful a/c unit?
#868 of 1370 Still cruisin'

Hmmm... maybe we're getting ripped. I just had a converstion about this with my service guys and they claim we can't get them in for less than $500. Maybe ours are better than most. I honestly don't know.

The cruise that Southeast Distributors installs is a Scion/Toyota accessory and is covered by the manufacturer warranty if installed at delivery. How can any other cruise be better than that?
If the Southeast dealers sell the cruise at $250 uninstalled and $350 installed you can be sure there is profit margin in the $250 price. $500 is theft IMO.
For those who live outside of Southeast, why not just order the kit for $250 or less and have local dealer or independent shop install it? Labor time for the kit is 1.5 hours or less.
