A big car in a small body.
I absolutely love my scion xd. While it is a small car, it is amazingly roomy. The storage area can carry an unbelievable amount, and with the back seats down, that area is even larger. I have even hauled furniture on several occasions. The gas mileage is great, at around 28 town and 32 plus open road. The scion is the fastest car I have ever driven. Visibility is very good, with little to no blind spots. It is a very dependable car with a smooth ride. Other than routine maintenance, it never needs any type of repair, and it has 125,000 miles on the odometer. The only drawback is there is not a lot of legroom in the back seat for a person taller than average height. I would highly recommend this car to anyone who wants a small efficient dependable car.
