"I have the 2008 Scion xD Release Series. The car is great to look at and fun to drive. The interior is just as cool as the exterior. The color of the Release Series is amazing and the interior has accents in the same lava color. I haven't had any problems mechanically with the car. The only thing about the car that isn't perfect (in my opinion) is the aftermarket body kit. The quality is not the same as the car and the paint has not held up as well."
"I have had my xd for 5 years and have changed the oil, put one set of front brakes, and tires on it. It still runs great and I don't foresee any upcoming repairs. It currently has 94,500 miles. Great value considering I only paid $17,500 for it!"
"VERY RELIABLE CAR WITH GOOD GAS MILEAGE [29-35]. ADEQUATE ROOM FRONT AND READ. CAN CARRY WHEEL CHAIR IN BACK AND STILL HAVE 1/2 REAR SEAT. HEAT AND A/C WORK VERY WELL, STYLE IS SO-SO. DASH LOOKS CHEAP. WOULD PREFER IF IT HAD A RIGHT ARM REST FOR DRIVER."
Pros: "great price, small and easy to drive, unique"
Cons: "no middle console, low quality interior"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"I purchased this car september 2008 and have loved it! I haven't had any maintenance issues whatsoever. It drives great, mileage is good and it's the perfect size. I'm not a huge fan of the interior, the material used in the car gets dirty very easily and the carpet material on my driver's side started ripping within the $35000 bumper to bumper warranty period but I was told by Scion that it would not be covered to repair or replace this. Other than that, great car!"
"This has been the best car I have ever owned. The only negative is the comfort. Really could use arm rests. The dash gets dirty really easy and its hard to clean. But thats it. I'm so in love with my car. I smile every time I get into drive it and the radio even says "Good Morning". Love It!!"
"I have had my Rel Series for over 2 years without one problem. 30k miles and I get 35 MPG on the Road, 29-31 around town. Only issue is the 18" tires can barely make 30k and they need replacement, however they make a huge difference in handling so it is worth the extra. Great little car for the $$$$$."
"This is good run around town car but don't take it on the road. It is noisy even after undercoating and new noise reduction tires. There is no opportunity for conversation in the car during freeway driving due to the noise. At city street speeds the noise is tolerable. For gas mileage the car is exceptional. It has rattles in it which can't be found. If I could get decent money out of it, it would be gone."
"Bought it brand new in 2008. Highway fuel mileage is exceptional. I have averaged between 34 and 37 mpg on most trips. My only complaint is that while driving uphill, it likes to down shift 2 gears while on cruise control. When I take cruise control off, I can drive it fine. I also added the aftermarket armrest and cargo net which are great features to have."
"I bought the Scion xd 2009 back in July and love it! It is zippy and has plenty of room for 4 people. My gas mileage is pretty good- usually have to fill up every 1.5 weeks. I haven't had any issues with it and I believe it is worth every penny."
"This little car has excellent fuel milage. I love that I can make it back and forth to work all week on one tank of fuel. Fueling up once a week is excellent. Stability control has payed for itself. During times of incliment weather it is a worthwhile option to have.
Electronic components, nice sound system, pioneer sound system and ipod attachment are great! Built in aux capability is ideal for hands free phone use."
