Scion announced today that iPod connectivity is standard across its entire lineup for 2008. Scion said its standard 160-watt Pioneer AM/FM/CD audio system features a head unit with iPod control. “This head unit integrates track, artist and album information from the iPod into a one-line display on the head unit’s screen,” explains the car maker. “Connectivity is achieved by simply plugging the iPod into a port via a connector cable, providing outstanding sound quality through the car’s stereo system and constant power to the iPod. Music is controlled through the head unit and steering wheel audio controls.”

This is true as long as you do not have a new i-pod.  I have a 2008 Scion and my new i-pod works but will not charge.  I was told by Corp. Scion that this was a i-pod/Apple problem not Scion’s.  Kevin went on to tell me that Scion did not know Apple was changing anything, and Scion will not be doing anything to fix this and I should call Apple.
