2009 Scion xD 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Bought this car for use as my wifes and myself commuting car and to keep the SUV in the garage to keep the miles off it and save some money in gas. We keep the rear seats down and use the area as a cargo area. The dogs love the cargo area as well. We purchased an after market rubber mat that covers the complete cargo area (with the seats down). The car looks small on the outside, but inside there is a lot more room than you'd expect. We did look at the Honda Fit, but liked the look and the wat the xD drove. Also, the local Honda dealer marked up the price of the Fit by $2500 over MSRP and unwilling to negotiate off that price. Glad we passed on the Fit. The Xd fits our needs.

Best Features

Great fuel economy - we have been getting 34 - 38 mpg on our commute (2/3 freeway and 1/3 city). Toyota quality. Lots of cargo space when the rear seats are folded down. Stereo sounds Great! Ipod adapter. Comfortable ride. Also, the proven reliable Corolla engine is in the xD.

Worst Features

The turning radius could be tighter. Interior lighting to illuminate the cup holders under the dash and lights which illuminate the outside mirror adjustments.
