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.

Great Scion with good features

My scion is a really fun little car. It's fast and great on gas. My only issues are that it does get a little scary on highways with high speeds since the car is so small. Turns could be a little scary, and the inside under the hood is a little hard to work around since it's so tiny and compact. Otherwise it's an absolutely great vehicle.

2009 Scion xD Review for Arizonans

it's simple and easy to drive nothing bad but nothing fancy. Never had any problems with it. I live in a very hot state and the car can stay pretty cool. Does take awhile to get rid of heat when left in the heat though. It is recommended that you park in shade to avoid having to wait a few minutes for the heat to exit the vehicle.

Buy this car..you won't regret it!!

This car has been such a delight! It's incredibly reliable and has been a steady workhorse for me to count on! The size has been perfect... compact for city parking, but big enough to help me move last month! I've just loved it..good gas mileage, decent amount of acceleration power, easily maneuverable, and super cute too!!

It's a excellent car as long you take very good care of the car

I don't have any issues, with the car. It's really good on mileage and it's pretty good to me thus far. The performance is really great and pick up speed very quickly when getting on to the highway. I have installed an aftermarket radio and it's really sound good with the new speakers as well.

My Scion has been effective efficient & trustworthy the whole time I've owned.

Bd water pump otherwise, brakes and standard tuning, the car is excellent. I drove it from Florida to Oregon, it's a good car. This IS the 2nd water pump in 1.5 years of owning the vehicle though. The car gets great gas mileage and I'm pleased by the performance and speed. It's quick

Limited edition scion 2.0 from 2009

Car has been nothing but reliable from day one. No major issues. Just routine maintenance. Great gas mileage daily driver fantastic car would purchase again. Carr has even performed well in bad weather. The only cons is it is small and only children fit in the back seat
