4 Cylinders, 2WD, 1.8L Engine, Automatic Transmission, 117K Miles, Gray/Gray
I LOVE this car. I've put about 20K miles on it so far, and there has not been a day when I haven't thought how glad I am to have bought it. It's fun to drive, handles well even in bad weather, easy to park, a/c is cold, and did I mention it's cute, too. It looks small but feels bigger inside, and offers the driver a higher driving position than the Honda Fit, Mazda3, and a couple others I test drove. The only thing I don't like is the headrests jut forward so I have to adjust the seat to compensate, and the seats aren't the most comfortable - they are adequate, though. I'm in the car over two hours a day and I can live with them! I'm getting 38-39 mpg consistently with a manual transmission. Not phenomenal mileage, but good enough. So far there have been NO problems or issues with this car, other than the oil filters are different from the other Scion models so you can't bop into any old oil-change place and get serviced. Hopefully, as this car becomes more popular that will change... I think anyone looking for an reliable, inexpensive, fun commuting car should check out the Scion xD!!
This car is manufactured by Toyota so you know you're getting a quality vehicle from a company with a solid reputation. It's given me better fuel mileage than the numbers here would indicate with as much as 40MPG on road trips. The xD has a solid feel for being so small and comes with quite a few features though it's a base model. The 1.8L Four cylinder engine with 5Spd is a peppy combo with good get-up-n-go. All in all, probably the best car in it's segment. I wholeheartedly recommend!
