2008 Scion xD 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

If your looking for a subcompact that is dependable,well built, good on gas and different, then buy this car. This is the second Scion in my family and I can tell you these cars are great deals. Get in and test drive one and see for yourself. If you want 36+ miles a gallon,all the options at one price, and a cool car to boot then buy an XD.


Best Features

Good pickup, great gas mileage, comfortable and well equipped interior, unique body style, and top quality


Worst Features

center armrest

2008 Scion xD 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I like the car so far, I have only had it a couple of days. I traded in my 05 civic for it, I think it has better pickup than the civic, Has a lot a neat features inside, like Ipod jack and mp3 player jack, The mpg is Ok, not as good as the civic but I think it is fun to drive. I like how it sets up higher kind of like a small suv with a lot better mpg


Best Features

Radio sound real nice, Plenty of space to sit, More than 2 cup holders, back seats fold all the way down, 2 glove boxes, mpg , price, fun to drive,


Worst Features

Get a center arm rest in it.

2008 Scion xD 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

We chose the Scion xD for the obvious reasons, gas mileage and bang for the buck. The car has an ugly dog sort of cuteness to it. Our initial impression is that it is a great little car. You definitely get what they advertise. If you want a Lexus level of performance, quiet and ride quality, don't buy this car. If you want an inexpensive, feature heavy car, this is the one you want! The "Pure Price" concept makes buying cars a snap. No pressure, no negotiating - what you see is what you get.


Best Features

-Fuel economy -Purchase process -Features (abs, a/c, power windows and locks, keyless entry... all stock) -Excellent stock sound system


Worst Features

-Add a a center armrest for the driver.

2008 Scion xD 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Gas mileage not what was promised. I'm only getting 22.3 MPG mostly city with some highway. My old 6 cyl Mercedes got similar! The dash board rattles, sounds like there's a hornet in the car. Lots of blind spots, the rear window is like a porthole; the wide front struts and bulky side mirrors completely obscure pedestrians in crosswalks and vehicles approaching on the right. Visibility is so poor, I don't think I'll be keeping the car. Wish I'd gotten the Honda Fit. Too bad, Scion.


Best Features

The car is cute. I like the styling, interior features and details like the radio controls on the steering wheel. Plenty of leg room, rear seats flatten to allow lots of storage; seats are comfortable.


Worst Features

Minimize obstructions to driver's visual fields. Widen rear window; add small triangle-shaped windows in front of the side view mirrors.

Review

I bought the car for gas mileage and ability to still haul a few things, and that's exactly what I got. It goes down the highway fine, and of course is good around town. The standard accessories are nice because it's most of the things you'd "add" anyhow. Disappointed in no center arm rest as a standard option, and the "XM Ready" radio is about as ready as any radio is. It cost $500 more dollars to make it ready, which is very deceiving.


Best Features

Gas mileage. hatchback with fold down seats.


Worst Features

Center arm rest standard. If it's an XM radio, then equip it. If it's not then it's just a radio and don't list it as such. More cost efficient aluminum wheel option. Black interior not that great. More storage compartments would be nice.
