My wife just bought a 2006 scion xb. She has the exzact same problem and that is all that is wrong. She asked the scion dealer the next day and they told her it is a break in period type item. They told her that a couple of times backing up they will stop squeaking. I dont know how true that is but that is the answer that she got from the dealer.

I guess if they are for sale on someone's website, they wouldn't be one-of-a-kind.
What kind of parts are you rerferring to?
#7 of 116 Waiting period for 2006 Xb?
Oct 22, 2005 (9:16 am)
I signed a purchase order for 2006 Xb, dealer says it will take 20-30 days to reach dealership in Eastern PA. I ordered a Black automatic with little accessories. Is this typical?

i live in palm springs, ca area. xb's are being bought before they even get off the delivery truck, so i'm not suprised. i have seen articles stating that toyota is going to limit how many xb's are allowed to be sold in the U.S for 06'. grab one quick!
i bought mine a week ago as it rolled off the truck and wasn't even prep'd yet. dealer told me that someone had backed out of their deposit. it had only two miles on it. their loss my gain!
also, pretty much everything i have found on private distributors pages (aftermarket parts) is being sold by sellers on ebay. that's where i have gotten most of my goodies, some are even being listed on ebay by toyota dealerships!

sounds like this person is not a scion fan and got lost and turned to the wrong forum..........
get that person a map to the expensive gmc forum quick!
perhaps there they can brag about all those ponies and great gas mileage!

One day about a month ago, I ran into a similar person that was just ticked that I was driving a box. He was in a GMC truck. He made sure he sped up at all times like his ego was having issues. The funny thing was that he was paying so much attention to keeping in front of me, he did not pay attention to the stopped cars in front of him. Luckily no one got hurt, but he destroyed some grass on the side of the road.

That story reminded me of a compliment I seem to have received.
My wife was with some of her friends, and they started talking about cars. One of her friends mentioned that she thought guys who drive big trucks are trying to compensate for "other shortcomings" they have.
One of the other ladies asked my wife if the opposite is true since I drive a Scion.
