2008 Scion xD 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


I bought the Scion xD after driving the xA from an ebay sale, downsizing from a pickup truck which i can no longer afford to drive. After two weeks of both highway and around town driving, I find the xD to be fun to drive,comfortable and very economical (35+ combined mpg.) Although you won't win any drag races in a Scion, it will zoom up to highway speeds quickly enough where it floats effortlessly at 75+ mph. Handling and cornering are excellent and the seats are firm and supportive. In spite of its size the xD drives like a larger vehicle. Fold the seats down and there's plenty of room for your stuff. It was a great choice. I'm going to keep it.

Best Features

Handling, comfort, economy, panache! The xD doesn't look like everything else out there.

Worst Features

Forget the electronic gewgaws, give me round analog gauges (fuel, temp, oil pressure, volts). Less road noise would be fine too, but that is more than compensated for by the excellent Pioneer stereo.
