Would not buy again

2008 Scion xD 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
The XD was my first brand new car, and I am very disappointed in it. I will be trading it in soon. First off the tires are not great on it.
It slides all over the road, rain and snow. I did however find winter tires this year and it went much better, but the cost was high ($600). Driving on the highway is horrible because any little bit of wind and it blows you all over the road. Also when driving with just the front windows down is impossible, it makes a wind tunnel effect and is a killer on your ears, so the back windows have to be down too. I also replaced the charcoal canister twice in it, which happened at 38,000 miles. $1,000+ each time replaced. Not the vehicle I expected.
plug in for ipod, room to hull stuff when the back seats are folded down
It'd be nice if tires were easier to find, and cheaper.
