Surprisingly fun and inexpensive car

2008 Scion xD 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
Bought this guy a couple of months ago as an all-around hauler. I drive about 75 miles a day for work, was looking for practicality and fun. Also use on weekends for trips to see our daughter at college, etc. Very pleased with the xD. Lowered with TRD springs from dealer, rear spoiler, bumper protector. Have not used for overnight trip, but hauls four adults with ease (we are all short) and occasionally five for trips around town. Looked also at the Honda Fit, also nice, but glad I chose the xD. 33-36 miles per gallon (measured at fill-ups), 35-39 average on readout. Ride (w/TRD springs) is firm but comfortable. Co-worker has an xD also and has had good experience, highly recommended!
Came with everything needed, power windows, door locks, cruise. Great features and handling for 'economy car.'
Fog/driving lights from dealer? Nothing else that I can think of...
