    I liked the idea of an older xB as a tiny work van

    I'm surprised at that. Maybe It's because I'm within 50 miles, and was ordering six clocks at a time from them for a while, but they sent me replacement panels no questions asked, with a box to return the old one in... and I'm talking received replacement within two business days.

    So, maybe they have experienced some growing pains or supply issues since.

    Rain Bird did not offer me any reimbursement for the MV issue, but I only had to replace 3 of those back panels. Hunter replaced one ICC for me and several ASV valves with leaky threads, even though they determined it was a Lasco MA issue...

    And Daihatsu is 51.2% owned by Toyota, and offers a version of it too called the Materia. Also the Subaru Dex.

    And Great Wall Motors of China has theirs too, called a CoolBear.
