speaking from experience. they are not horribly bad. i dont like how it looks on the outside, but the inside is really roomy. not a car for me, but i dont mind riding in it. the gauges are def weird. we have found out that people really like them, or hate it lol. there is no grey area. since they so uncommon you get a lot of looks too, wich can be good or bad. as for the other xb's around they all seem nice. everyone will wave or honk at you. its kinda like a cult... im happy with my celi though. ps: if you ever get one dont get the TRD
springs, the 1 inch drop hardly shows, even up to one with stock springs, and it makes the ride a lot worst.
