Good Economy Car for Rural Area

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


I live in the northern mountains of NH; my driving is mostly rural, seldom faster than 65; there is virtually no stop-and-go traffic. My xD has an automatic and also traction/stability control. My lowest gas mileage has been 37; my highest 40.5. (I figure my MPG mechanically: first click off on fill up with rounding to nearest nickel.) My last three tanks averaged 39 mpg.

Best Features

Stability/Traction control. Recently I drove this car in a very remote area of northwestern Maine (Spencer Lake/Jackman region). I traveled 40 miles on gravel woods roads, with some very steep and rough sections, and with two sections underwater by over-flowing brooks. Car was great.

Worst Features

a temp gauge that registers outside temperature. intermittent rear wipers. even more ground clearance (has 6.5). 7.5 or more would be good.
