Love this car!

2008 Scion xD 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
I bought the xD in August of 08 to replace my 06 Cobalt. The xD is loads of fun! The car handles excellent and is quick for it's engine size. I'm tall and it fits me perfectly. Very roomy inside for it's size. It will surprise you in that respect. The 5 speed manual shifts easy. The clutch is a bit tight and requires a few higher revs then my Cobalt did to get moving, but this is an engine that welcomes higher revs. I'm very glad I chose the xD for my next car. I have put 10,000 miles onthe clock so far and look forward to putting many more on it! I average around 35 mpg at 69 mph.
The over all look of the xD grabs your attention. The interior, sound system, mileage, cruise control, steering wheel radio controls.
Needs a 6th gear for highway cruising, sunroof/moonroof, a bit more power.
