After much consideration, relying heavily on consumer reviews and expert opinions, I chose to buy a Scion xD. It took me almost 3 months of research and test drives to make up my mind, but I am very glad I bought the Scion. I would buy it again without a second's hesitation. Other people are finally catching on because I have seen two other xD's in the last few weeks.
Stylish and fun to drive! Great gas mileage: I always get over 32 mpg.
