Nice car with a few quirks

2008 Scion xD 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
This car is overall a great car to have. It gets good fuel economy, and has enough pick-up to get up to speed on the highway. The small design allows this car to be navigated through the tightest of spaces, while the height that you ride at almost makes you feel like you are riding in a SUV or a crossover. You do get looks driving in this car, I had a guy in an Acura looking up and down the side of it trying to figure out what I was driving!
Steering wheel controls, all the safety features that come standard, sporty look. All standard power features.
3 speeds for the windshield wipers? I don't get that, and they call it "intermittent". Also, the lack of a center armrest in this car is a drawback. The rear defroster does not shut off automatically, so you have to make sure to turn it off manually to avoid draining the battery.
