2012 Scion xD 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


My first Toyota product, my first foreign-built car. I expected a well-built, well-designed car backed up by good service from the dealership. Wrong! Insanely noisy (Scions have no radio till dealer puts it in after you buy, so you test drive without one, thought radio would drowned out road noise but again- wrong!), uncomfortable driving position. Fuel-economy meter very inaccurate, speaker vibrates, clutch impossible to operate smoothly: dealer refuses to admit car has problems. 17,000 miles/ 18 months later and still no repairs- thank God I leased this thing, can't wait to turn it in. Best advice: dealer should let you take it for a day-long test drive with radio installed!

Best Features

Fuel economy, roominess, features for the price

Worst Features

Added sound insulation, telescopic steering wheel, a clutch that actually works, fix the awkward driving position, a less arrogant dealership.
