2009 Scion xD 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


I have only had the Xd a few days. Did a clunker trade in. Bought the Wasabi Green Release series in the manual transmission. First tank of gas averaged 37.6, mostly highway at 70-75 mph. Refueled, and then got 44 mpg at 60 mph on the highway, carrying 2 adults and 3 children. Very fun to drive, accelerates very quickly and nimble handling. Eye catching design and color. Was able to carry myself, 2 children, a dog, and a bike inside. A bit tight, but it worked. Yakima makes a roof mount bike rack for this car, and I will probably get that in the spring. So far, we are really enjoying the car.

Best Features

Navigation with all the audio goodies. Great mileage. Love how quick it accelerates and how it handles. Rear seat configurations are great for hauling dogs and cargo, even a bike.

Worst Features

Arm rest (I will probably have the after market one installed) Road noise is significant, but not unexpected for this size of car.
