It has been three and a half years since we got our xA and we have been very pleased. We have had no problems with the car; haven't had anything fixed yet. We still get >30mpg, even with city driving. The car is great for the city: easy to zip around and park in tight spaces. It still looks great outside and inside, although the audio controls are not very good. It is a capable vehicle for the highway, but you will feel when tractor trailers pass you. While it looks small it has a lot of room inside and is very flexible. You wouldn't believe the amount of stuff you can fit in.
