Great Car for the $
By Paul on
2009 Scion xD 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
I've had my Xd for 1 year. It is better than I expected. Fun to drive, economical and practical - it is all those things. It handles very well on the mountain roads I often drive. I put a rack on it and I carry bikes, skis and kayaks with no problems. There is plenty of room for a small car and the interior is well designed. The list of standard features is impressive. The engine compartment is clean and everything is very easy to get at - oil dipstick, washer reservoir, etc. This car delivers what is promised - a high value car that is a little sporty, very practical and pretty cool. Great car!
Sound system, larger wheels, good gas mileage, responsive motor, styling
I would get the handling package with the sway bar - this car likes to scoot around on twisty roads, so you need the extra control.
