The slab-sided xB offers an unusually spacious interior for such a small vehicle. The rear seat is as roomy as those in some large sedans, and access to the interior is as easy a minivan’s. The xB also handles nimbly and is one of the few small cars of its era with standard electronic stability control. Unencumbered outward visibility and small dimensions make it a good city car.

Reliability indicates how models have performed in the past, providing the basis for predicting how the vehicles will hold up in the year ahead. These charts provide the most comprehensive reliability information available to consumers. Based on information received from our latest subscriber survey for about 329,000 vehicles, our reliability history charts give you a rundown on how 2000 through 2020 vehicles are holding up in 17 potential trouble spots, ranging from the engine, transmission, and brakes to power equipment and the electrical system. NA indicates that we did not receive a large enough sample size to provide data for a specific year. An X indicates that the vehicle was not manufactured for a specific year.
