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


The first time I saw this Barcelona Red Scion I loved it and it has proven to be a good purchase. I needed a reliable car to bomb about town and for short range (<500 miles) highway trips, although took did a 2000 mile trip and car preformed great. I also needed good cargo capacity and excellent gas mileage. It has proven itself on all counts. The red color is very easy to spot among all the silver cars in big parking lots. I also keep the rear seat down for hauling cargo; mostly golf clubs and groceries.

Best Features

Gas mileage: 34 city, 40 highway during summer drops to 30/36 during winter. Comfortable drivers seat. Lots of storage up front. Like the 6 step computer for watching MPG.

Worst Features

Replace bar style gas gage w/ standard gage & provide a low gas reminder light at 1 gallon. Needs a drivers right arm rest and the left arm rest is worthless unless you are very short. Rear seat headroom is lacking. Lacks power w/ full load in hilly areas. Don't auto lock doors when engine is off.
