Was at the dealer 2 days ago. Test drove the XB. My wife test rode a BOX couple of months back and just like I, really loved the box.
All the paper work is ready for me to order my base 2006 toaster in Salsa red with auto tranny. I just need 500.00 for deposit and it will be ordered.
Looks like that will be a couple days from this posting.
However----I just read somewhere about cruise control on an XB?
My dealer never mentioned it. Is it already there and I didn't notice or is it an option that somehow I missed on Scions home page?
With the highway miles I put on, cruise would be a real benifit.
Any input?

It's not a factory option, however, many dealers offer a cruise control unit by Rostra. I have this unit and it works well.
had the dealer put it (rosta) on both our boxes... works well

To have the dealer do it, you're looking at like 400 - 500. If your a DIY kind of person then just buy it $200 and install yourself. I didn't install mine (dealer through in free) but from what others say and looking at it on mine looks do-able at home.

cheers

Thanks, the feedback from this thread helps.
At least I know now I can buy later and install myself.
I found a site for the Rostra, it has a link for the download of the manual for the install of the cruise control. I looks straight forward enough.
It even has step by step real photographs! SWEET!

A friend of mine bought the Rosta kit and I've looked at it and through the instructions. If your mechanically minded and can follow simple instructions it should be a breeze. I'm going to get one in a couple months.

Thanks for the advice
I can handle the cruise control install
The instructions seem straight forward enough
Luckily I can follow simple instructions.
Now where does the instuction manual say to drill the hole for the cruise control handle--In the left or right rear tire?:D

I bought the Rostra one and installed it myself and it is very easy. The only problem I ran into was installing the throttle cable but after I figured it out everything else was easy.
