2008 Scion xD 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
I've had it for a while and I'd have to say, it's a great cheap car. I just took a trip and managed 42 mpg on the highway while around town I'm getting about 32 mpg. It has some power if you get on it but the manual transmission is awful. The Interior is awesome as well as the body design, and people are always checking it out on the street.
Overall design. Seating is super-comfortable on long trips (for me). I'm 5' 11" and about 180 lbs and it fits me perfectly. Also, the room for cargo is very good. I can pack stuff into this.
Manual transmission needs to be better. Shifting is clunky. I stall out from a dead stop at least 2 or 3 times a day. Either the flywheel needs to be larger, or it needs more torque.
