I've recently moved into the Boulder area and have considered making a change with my automobile situation, for a number of reasons. Very few of those reasons would be attributable to my Scion and/or it's performance but here is the FAIR and HONEST DISCLOSURE to anyone interested; The A/C compressor does not work besides a physical positioning and participation in this engine's belt loop system... You can turn on the air conditioning without issue but it will not blow colder than the air outside the vehicle (at very best.)
Looking now [07/08/2018] on eBay, one NEW A/C compressor for the 2008 Scion xB can be purchased for about $250.00 with free shipping.. And depending on your level of handiness, it could be a relatively affordable fix.
The car is spacious and runs quite well, though at 180k+ miles it should be expected that work could be done to improve her appearance and ride. Gas mileage is approximately 26mpg on average (According to my odometer display panel and at least 5000 miles of data to reference.) I worked as a carpenter for a while in South Florida, as well as a coach for a soccer team and Dad to my beloved dogs. That being said, the interior is in need of a scrubbing. A full detail on the inside would leave much less evidence of my 11 yrs as owner, than the original paint job being displayed outwards. I would be willing to negotiate the cleaning/prepping fees ..She may also appreciate some paint but it doesn't hurt her to remain slightly 'natural' if that's your objectively allocated budget.
Need to sell the car (in part) due to the move out here with the girlfriend being slightly more costly than expected and the original finance plan has fallen back onto plan B which included unloading some equity. Putting my car up for private sale, in case there is a buyer out there that might enjoy her as much as I did..
Went to CarMax to get an appraisal/offer this week on my Scion. Surprisingly, I was not offended by their offer & will end up accepting it without interest from the private sector. My asking price is $2,500 but enjoy a good haggle so make me an offer. Actually, contact me via the email in this ad for photos if interested . ..Then maybe you would like to make an offer. Thanks for your time.
