Absolutely Love It!!

2008 Scion xD 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
I fell in love with this car the first time I drove it. I looked at other ones but kept coming back. It's fun, zippy, a LOT more room than the coupe I used to drive. It feels like a mini SUV. When the back seats are folded down almost anything will fit. I've have a few problems with it, transmission slips every one and awhile in the cold, ABS and EBrake lights keep coming on. However, I have done quite a bit of research and neither seems to be a common problem so I'm thinking I just got a bad one. The gas mileage is amazing, 35-45 in the summer, I have even had it to 50 on long road trips. The winter is a little lower averaging 30 mpg city/highway mix.
Love the fold down seats and the hatch back. I got the standard radio and it sounds pretty good.
Change the gauges, I would like to be able to see the engine temp and a gas gauge instead of just dummy lights. Needs a center armrest in the front. I also really wanted a sunroof and leather interior but I could only get them after market.
