Sold a BMW Z3 during tough financial times and I love my little Scion. However, yesterday (before a major holiday) I was stranded in the California desert. I do not blame Toyota for my flat tire. But the tire on the xD DOES NOT EXIST anywhere. I put $60 on my cell phone - "411" charges for calling every Costco, Sam's Club, Pep Boys, and WalMart in the hugely populated areas of Riverside and Orange Counties. Had I checked into a hotel to await the arrival of a tire, 5 days. I ended up w/ a tire one size up just to get me home. My Toyota dealership and I will be having a discussion this week. Should they choose to do nothing, I will contact my local consumer media.
