Don't mind Ockey. He is like a bull, except his trigger color is a tad lighter.

Looks decent. Little hole in the back seat looks like maybe cigarette burn?

Nuts, I missed that.

Its also missing the baggage cover and looks to have some scuffing on the front left bumper. Also no roof racks and might not have a built in aux port-

...but its only $6k @.@

All minor inconveniences.
Scuffing is meh, same with the baggage cover. You might find the cover on eBay or dealer.indoibt it has an aux jack, but you can just swap the deck for one with aux and USB.

Not always. Some brands have the radio integrated with the computer system or navigation and can't be swapped out easily. The days of swapping out head units are pretty much over.

I know the volvos are quite integrated like that sometimes but even on those 07 models?

My '08 BMW has all kinds of functions for the car computer and it's the lowest level stereo they had. So, buyer beware.

I'd take a look at a 2nd gen Scion xB. I have one, so I might be biased. Here's a picture.
Image
Woops. Here's one
Image

My 2010 is averaging 27 mpg mixed with about 90k miles. Essentially a Camry 4 cylinder in a lighter chassis so not slow. Shockingly large rear passenger leg and head room. I'm 6'1" and fit comfortably in the back. With "I could probably wear a cowboy hat" kind of headroom. There is a taxi company in Raleigh North Carolina using them.

The cargo area seams small, but is tall. With the rear and front passenger seats down I've put one end of some 2x4 lumber in the glove box and closed the rear hatch, this probably isn't an intended feature. I've also towed my motorcycle home by ratchet strapping the front wheel to the built in cargo rings in the caro area. This fits...
Image
... inside with the same configuration. I've gotten allot out of my companion cube, I mean toaster, I mean Toyota, I mean Scion xB.

PS: When I purchased in 2010 the scion xB's were only manufactured in Japan with no US parts. This made my car immune to the recalls that, if coupled with poor driving skill, were lethal and made the news.

I loved the previous version of the xB but didn't understand the big change in styling for that version.

Yeah, they made it much larger than the original. It's more of a stubby camry wagon then a compact now. The first generation ones were bare bones. Things like cruise control weren't an option.
