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


We were looking for a small affordable car that got great mileage, with a good amount of flexible space, and was built to last. We compared the Honda Fit and Nissan Versa. The Versa was a distant third in price, performance, interior, and exterior. The Fit was second in price and more mundane without the costly sport package. After one year and 20,000 miles we couldn't be happier with our decision. In addition to exceeding all the above expectations, the xD is also fun to drive, has great std features we learned to love, great dealer service, and gets lots of positive attention because it doesn't seem to be as run of the mill as some the competitors. Low fixed price policy is great too

Best Features

Mileage: Best 49. Worst 35. Flexible interior. Spacious. We call it a micro van. Stereo jacks for Ipod and MP3 Large climate controls. Convenient cup holders. Cool tachometer/speedometer! Good basic computer instrumentation mpg, range, trip meters, etc. Free oil changes for the warranty period.

Worst Features

Seats are uncomfortable for long trips Clutch could be better, it's amazingly easy to kill on takeoff. It humbles everyone. Base tires wear quickly, poor dry traction, terrible winter traction. Do they expect everyone to add custom wheels and tires?
