They must have hired a different copywriter, I don't see the phrase "BEST EVER" anywhere.

Which I think is part of the problem. the product lineup is bland, and some of the "Toyota Majic" is rubbing of.

...and wow...Scion off about60%. They are a one-hit wonder brand. After the rush to buy the original xB it was kind of all over for them.

Even used Scion prices have fallen off of a cliff.

Let's just hope they take their current product lineup with them.

I've seen five xBs today, 2 1st gen and 3 second gens. And a TC. And possibly Toyota's ugliest current model, a 2nd gen Matrix parked next to the equally ugly Yaris hatchback. And an uncountable # of Camrys and Corollas.

I remember saying that Scion would fail - nobody believed me.

Toyota is doing with Scion what GM has been doind with every brand. They shouldn't have made the 2nd gen xB huge compared to the first, and they shouldn't be letting the tC soldier on without updates or a replacement.

Camino-my wife drives a first gen xB. I agreed with you, and said that Scion would be a "one hit wonder."

I would lay good money on the line that Scion will be gone in 5 years,probably sooner.
