Vehicle2008 Scion xD 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
ReviewJust purchased. Where else can you get a fully loaded automatic for under 16K? Plus the Toyota reliability factor and excellent gas mileage (27-32 mpg under the more strict 2008 EPA standards). The ride is very nice. Handling is tight and the xD's engine is more than adequate (128hp 4 cyl). In comparison, the Honda Fit (109hp) and Toyota Yaris (106 hp) don't come close. There's plenty of passenger room in the interior and the 60/40 split rear seats fold flat for plenty of cargo space. The standard 160-watt Pioneer stereo system with 6 speakers sounds great.The Scion xD offers the little intangibles that you just cannot find in any car in its class.You can't go wrong with the Scion xD.
Best FeaturesThe xD has a dedicated iPod adapter that you can control on the stereo face. Fuel economy is excellent. I got 36 mpg on my first tank of gas. The xD has a digital display that tracks your mileage. It resets every time you fill up. Love the safety features (6 air bags and ABS), price.
Worst FeaturesFor people like me who love having a center arm rest, Scion will be offering it this fall as an accessory. Other than that, I can't think of any improvements so far. Scion has done very well with the xD.
