I love my xD, it's my 1st new car. I upgraded from a 91 Acura Integra GS. I love that the Scion looks little but in the inside I feel tall. That was one thing I was worried about when getting a subcompact car, but the standard side curtain airbags are a plus safety feature. It is a little noisy but it has an amazing pioneer stereo system that covers it up. I love in simple instrument panel. It records my MPG. I got 33.2 MPG on my 1st tank!!
I love being able to control my iPod through the pioneer stereo system. I love the audio control on the steering wheel. I love feeling tall in my little Scion xD.
It's meant to seat 5 but I don't think 3 people can seat in the back comfortably. The cargo area can use a little but more room. The iPod control knob on the stereo is very delicate if you're trying to search for a song it starts from the beginning if you stop for 3 seconds, it can get annoying.
