"Took delivery of my new Scion xD on 10-30-2008. It is a 2009 model so,the traction/stability control features are standard instead of optional.I traded an 8 yr. old Insight with 5MT.My Scion has the 4AT,and I am glad for this convenience feature. I stayed with the std. radio+XM this is the most cost effective method for good sound!"
"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 fell in love with the look of my Nautical Blue 2008 Scion xD the moment I saw it and it has turned out to have been the best car! I had to put in an alternator when it was 6 or 7 years old. I just put in at 150,000 miles, 4spark plugs and one coil. Other than these things, it just been regular maintenance and was dependable, problem free driving. I just bought the 2016 Scion iM and it is gorgeous, Pearl white, and it feels like a bigger car in comparison, and all the included technology you would think I would like. Back up camera, voice recognition etc. but I like the Scion xD better because it is simpler. Turn the knob to go back to a song I just scanned by. I have to study how to do that with the new one. Turn the A/C on or off up or down, this new one I still have to figure out. I have it on automatic so it's probably going to be fine and I just need to get through the learning curve. But I don't want to have to have a learning curve though. The xD seems to have less blind spots than the IM. The xD seems easier to maneuver for me. It might be my age, but I prefer my xD to the gorgeous new one. More maneuverable, less blind spots, less technology to figure out."
"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!"
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 $$$$$."
"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."
