Not really a ricer car, more of an SUVish type of thing. Just buy what you like, as long as you dont put like an 8 foot spoiler on it and buy a big *** annoying muffler you won't have to worry about anyone calling you a "ricer f00l".

I dont know why people dont like the honda element. It looks ok. Its not ugly nor it is perfect. Anyways, my parents want me to get one of those boxed cars. I said no...I dont like their geometric shape

Element>scion, in looks
Scion xb>Element, in MPG

TRD is comming out with a supercharger to help the anemic 108hp. They're not the most steamlined but I would sure love to see 8 Mmat's Juggernauts walled in the back of that thing.

Its the mini, mini van for our generation. Not much horsepower, so don't expect having much fun in it...well if you could take out the back seat that would all change

my friend just bought one.
they have tons of room in them. im 6'4'' and i fit in the back seat with about 6'' of head room and tons of leg room.

the car looks good too (opinion). and they look really hot with 18" wheels which most scion dealers will let you finance.

they only have 108 horsepower but there are already turbo kits out that will get you 150hp to the wheels. which isnt bad for a 2500lb car.
even stock they dont run that bad.

overall i think its a great car for the money and they get a lot of attention.
i wouldnt call it a ricer car. unless you put a huge wing on top and "type-R'' badges all over it. also, why do you care if people think you are a "ricer f00l!" for driving a stock car?

I think they are ugly as hell, but they can be fun too. I this this Scion was designed mostly for inside entertaninment instead of looks and speed. I saw one of these on TV and it had a turntable and a big LCD screen in the back.

They intrest me, now if they had a v6 or a turbo 4 stock I'd be all over it for sure, or if they had RWD or AWD atleast. Next spring I might test drive one, because that is when I'm going to be looking into buying a new car, and if I like one I might buy one. They seem to be for the younger generation and geared for people to have alot of space and to put huge entertainment systems in them. I saw one around here, that was lowered alittle bit with pewter rims, jet black windows, and some window rattling subs in the back driving around.

Personally I like the xB, I got to drive one around a bit. They are definately great cars for the money and you get Toyota quality.

I think the tC is out or coming out, it has around 200 hp with the optional supercharger.
