Overall, I am very pleased with my purchase. With the xD, I am consistently getting 33 miles per gallon in a mix of city/highway driving. Good stuff! When I set out to purchase a new car, I wanted a four door hatch-back that would provide the ultimate in reliability and excellent gas mileage. I find the xD delivers these things and more. If one is considering a Honda Fit or a Nissan Versa, I would suggest that person take a serious look at the Scion xD. I considered the Honda and Nissan for months before stumbling across the xD by accident. I was blown away and made the decision to buy the Scion almost immediately. I have not regretted the purchase in the least!
Full compliment of airbags, iPod and MP3 inputs, reclining rear seats, Toyotas reputation for quality and reliability, substantial feel while driving. Bull dog looks.
No center arm rest, the rubber shift boot appears low-buck, front seats could provide a little more support under ones legs.
