Seats hurt lower back
By chadsurfer8 on


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


The car is great over all.
but ......

- major problem is the front seats hurt my lower back after 30 min or more drives. the lower back support has a hard bar that hurts. like a fold out couch sofa that has a bar going through the cushion in the middle. The lower cushion is not big enough and leaves my legs hanging. No adjustment for leg height. I am 5'9'' and 170 lbs girls may not have this problem.
i just replaced the seats yesterday with$500 TC seats set

- fast for economy car.

- i get 26 city and 32 hwy, i drive a little fast

- great quality, just the sun visor has a line looks unfinished

- Great look inside and out.

- small like a SUV that was shrunk down.

- cargo good

Best Features

- Looks inside and out. - Dash and great Radio - Great MPG 29AVG - power windows, locks, keyless entry. - fold down back seats. - really easy to park so small. - has a clock

Worst Features

- when seats fold flat the gap is filled with a cheep piece of cardboard, the gap should be filled with the seats and not a piece of cardboard. and go flat to the floor not raised up. (honda Fit has this) - ipod connecter should be USB and not a wired cord for the ipod. And the ipod should be able to be charged when you are connected to the Radio, it will not charge currently. (Pionner has radios that do this) - add more adjustments to seat like a lumbar support, lumbar support adjustment, leg height adjustment, (Scion TC seats have leg adjust only on driver side). - add a telescoping steering wheel. (toyota prius has this) -add outside temp gage. (a lot of cars have this)
