2008 Scion xD 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
Scion has everything done right, from the interactive website where you can build your vehicle, the pure pricing so you know what you're getting, to the buying experience where you pick the transmission, whether to have VSC or not, and then a list of dealer added options. Then when you get the car, everything is intuitively in the right place, and you don't even have to read the manual, since you can go to the website and watch the instructional videos. The xD is cute, spunky, has a lot of pep, and feels solid for such a small car. It's spacious enough for four adults, and very economical on the gas. It was made for Japanese domestic market so it slips into and out of traffic easily.
The iPod connector. You can use the dial to scroll through playlists, songs, and the titles of the artist and songs are displayed for you. The steering mounted audio controls are nice also. The huge list of standard features. Thoughtful interior design, cool pugnacious exterior, a little bulldog.
Bumpy ride, and rolls around quite a bit on turns.
