2009 Scion xD 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
I really like all of the XD's features. The IPOD connection, steering wheel controls, and mpg calculator. I love the styling of the car. The downsides: I seem to be too tall for the car. I am 5'9, and my knees touch the bottom of the steering column. I try to get comfortable since I am driving 200 miles each day...but I just can't. I installed an aftermarket armrest...but it's just not the same. The seats are not as comfortable as you would like, and they force you to sit up, and do not hug you like many cars.
limited sight out back windshield, get more cushion for the seats, raise the steering column by 4 inches, allow the seats to recline, add a trunk release to the hatch...its hard to open with your hands full. HEATED MIRRORS...they always freeze in GA, and I cannot see. The base speakers rattle :(
