To Xd or Not Xd?
By 1ldhall on
Vehicle
2010 Scion xD 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
Review
I commute the freeways of LA daily for +65 miles one-way. I have driven the Xd for over 6 months and +10k miles and find it both satisfying yet annoying causing classic cognitive dissonance. The power is ok, but not exceptional, gas-mileage is ok but not great, the radio is very annoying to use with so-so audio quality, in LA you need a radio to survive those long commutes. The AC can barely keep-up on warm days on the 101 fwy and it's not even summer yet! Only one cigarette lighter that is 'on' only with the ignition; annoying, no arm rest; annoying, road handling; noisy & annoying, can't see the cup-holders in the dark, annoying. There are better vehicles for the money available.
Favorite Features
Looks ok, gas mileage ok, reliability and quality ok, hey it's a Toyota.
Suggested Improvements
needs an armrest, interior lighting, smoother ride, better radio.

To Xd or Not Xd? - I'd Love to see what you come up with as far as another vehicle that even comes close to being as good a buy for the money as the xD that comes with-out even having to spend hours haggling on price. You sound as you are the one that wouldnt be comfortable in anything no matter what it was. The Scion xD is an Awesome Deal bar none, Period! p.s. -and will take less than 2 hrs to purchase from the time you step on the lot to the time your new 195/60R 16's hit the public road.
