Advice: car comes very well equipped so no options are really neededI purchased a 2008 Scion xD in January. At present, it has 2000 miles on odometer. I am very pleased with its driving position, seat support, adequate acceleration, comfortable ride,handeling, road feel from the power steering, fit and finish. I am getting 31-33 mpg which is mostly highway driving. The instrument panel appearance has both positive [ speedometer, tachometer, odometer, radio ] and negative [ heater ventilation controls] aspects. My only complaint is the door panels show scuff marks very easily. Thus far, I am very pleased with the car.
