Great car with a lot of personality

2006 Scion xA 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5M)
I recently purchased a 2006 Scion xA and have really enjoyed driving it so far. It really is a good value for the money. Most of the creature comforts come as standard equipment, the build quality is excellent, and it is fun to drive. The gas mileage is also impressive.
Well-designed and comforable interior, build quality, fun to drive, gas mileage. The car accelerates well with the manual transmission.
Ride/handling balance favors handling, which is generally a good thing, except that the ride is harsh on rough pavement. Improve ride without adversely affecting handling. The manual shifter could use some refinement. A sunroof and cruise control should be available options.
