I bought my Scion xd brand new in 2007 ('08 model). I do regular maintenance on my car and have had no major mechanical issues. It now has almost 100k miles and still runs better than ever. On the highway I usually get 35mpg every tank (a little less if you run the a/c) but always over 30mpg. Great car for the money (< $20k) very reliable and great mpg.
Great little car with good gas mileage. I get 32 mi/gal every tank (only 11 gal). I am the original owner and have had no serious problems. This little car will keep going forever as long as it is maintained. You can fit more in the back than you might think and the back seats fold down for extra room. The back seat area is small but good if you have kids to transport.
you will love it

I'm 45 years old and have had lots of cars. This one is my favorite. I don't even know where to begin the car is flawless. My friends are jealous. I feel like buying this Scion XD was one of the best choices I have made. I have a field-based job and drive a lot. This car is saving me a couple hundred a month in gas and it's doing it with style. It looks great runs great. Feels great to drive. The attention to detail at all levels is awesome... it's like everyday I find some other detail I like that I was unaware of. I couldn't be happier
