I haven't seen anyone review who's owned their xD for a while.
I bought mine brand new in December 2008.
(I remember some of the reviews I see here from my research!)
I test drove both the xD and the Honda Fit the same day.
I was not impressed with the Fit, and fell in love with the xD after I made a right hand turn out of the dealership-the car takes turns beautifully.
Since then, the performance has remained steady-surviving long trips and daily commutes.
It's run excellently and has only had oil changes thus far.
I just had my first problem today-the car wouldn't start-going into the dealership tomorrow.
I wish it did a little better in snow/ice-it's kind of wimpy.
