Pros

Torquey, flexible engine, well matched with solid 5-speed. Logically arranged dash. Very workable storage space with the 60/40 backseats folded completely or partially flat. Gas mileage is excellent and should appeal to hyper-milers. Great crash test results. Should help the insurance.  

Cons

Road noise through some noise stock tires (also reputed to have short tread life). A firm ride comes with a short, wide wheelbase and I like it's feel but I wonder about long trips that have to be done without many rest stops. The build quality feels tight at this early stage of ownership but I get the sense that the sheet metal guage might be a little thin. I suspect all manufacturers looking for good EPA numbers have the same standards.

Scion Xd Is A Winner For The Times We Live In. Remember The Old Bug? Today, It's The Pug. — "Pugnacious".....some say bulldog. I say pug. (cleaner; no drool) some say "entry level" I say "downsizer". Nimble "runabout" says Consumer Reports. When I read their "most reliable in class" award, I began to consider the xD much more seriously. Toyota created this brand for youth seeking individuality by the way in which they would accessorize (mod) the base Scion. With the xD, however, many of us with extended experience and established identity see the value in the xD as it stands, without the added qualifiers. Toyota has nailed it for those of us who want dependable point A to B with a good dose of personality at no extra cost. Very nicely done.

2009 Scion Xd — Build quality,standard/optional features/accessories.It is not a sports/performance machine;but I get from AB and back with comfort and economy. I drove a 5MT Honda Insight for 8 yrs. and while economical it was a maintenance headache. My xD does not have the fuel economy of a hybrid but the purchase price is much more economical and the maintenance costs should far offset the fuel costs.Overall I am quite pleased with my new xD and if it displays the same reliability as previous Toyota products Ive owned(it has a Corolla/Matrix motor)then it will be a purchase that was well chosen on my part.So far I have only 1 :"complaint" about the car:since it has the larger (Corolla/Matrix) engine,it should have the same fuel capacity(13.2gal.vs.11.1gal. of the Yaris!

All Around Fun — The driving is exqusite. You can feel the car grip to the ground when accelerating and turning. The interior and exterior are really nice. It has very low miles and is a brand new 2009. This car has optional features that can be put in at any time, such as interior lighting, an upgraded stereo, and upgraded rims. This car is awesome
