The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Chrysler PT Cruiser convertible gets the axe midway through 2008, so if you want one, act quickly, but the wagon is here if you need flexible utility with retro flair. The 2010 Scion xB has a lot of space, polarizing looks, and lots of safety features. It provides good value for those on a budget, trendy or not.
