We've had our xD about 1.5 years now.
We traded in a Dodge Durango that was bleeding us dry.
I was looking for a basic econo-box to use as a commuter vehicle.
This car has far exceeded our expectations.
At 15K there have been no issues, just regular oil changes and a tire rotation.
We get frequent compliments on the appearance - it doesn't look like a cheap car.
We average 32-33 MPG in suburban driving, but have hit 40 with careful driving on the highway!
I like the strong, economical engine and the well laid out interior (it does not have guages in the center or the dash).
The steering wheel audio controls are nice.
The interior materials feel a little cheap - especially compared to our 2000 Honda.
The trip computer control (which I am surprised it even has) is inconveniently placed.
Maybe fancier standard wheel covers.
