Possible Issues with the Scion 2014 xB
I have started looking at vehicles to replace a 2004 Highlander and like many things about the xB. I'm hoping someone can address a few concerns:
Has the issue with excessive oil consumption in earlier model years been resolved? I don't like the idea of putting in a quarter of oil every 1500 miles and being told by Scion/Toyota that it is normal.
In later model years there are quite a few reports of airbags failing to deploy in serious front-end crashes. How extensive is this problem?
Is the ground clearance of 5.1" an issue when driving on roads and alleys with potholes? What is it that is only 5.1" from the ground? Is the 5.1" clearance under the engine somewhere between the front wheels?
Thanks in advance for any answers!
