“Toyotafied". This is how to lose your unique "brand owner”

There's less to hate about the 2008 Scion Xb ... and that may be a problem. I can see why the designers at Scion have changed the vehicle's length and width resulting in a 600-pound weight gain for the xB. via Own Your Brand!

It's a Rav 4, looks too normal. The reason I bought it was the gas and the unique look. It's gone so I would never buy the new one. Toyota blew it.

You only think Toyota blew it because you like the first gen. Pure biased opinion. The tC doesn't have a crazy radical design. The first gen xB is a rebadged Toyota bB. The second gen xB is the first true Scion xB. Those are facts you can't dispute. It's only the opinion of some elitist first gen xB owners that a redesign is a bad thing.

Update: The 2nd Gen xB, with some changes, is available as the Corolla Rumion in Japan. Now xB owners can get JDM parts for their xBs...
