#347 of 356 New XD Owner Here
Jun 17, 2008 (5:07 am)
I just bought an xd a week ago and love it. At 54 I don't fit the demographic but I'm a working musician around the Cleveland area (www.jeffsherman.net) and I think its a great little gig vehicle. Perfect for hauling my little solo pa rig. I traded out of my trusty old Jeep Cherokee mostly because the 14mpg was eating into my earnings. I suppose I could have lived with that but then when the a/c evaporator gave out that clinched it. (So I'm a wimp.)
Anyway ... greetings. Looking forward to learning more about Scions here on the forum.

No, the xD does not have daytime headlights. In fact, the alarm isn't very loud. You could miss hearing it in a noisy environment or if you have poor hearing.
Why can't manufacturer's (in this case Toyota/Scion) simply keep using the same bits and pieces on stuff like this?? How much can they save re-engineering a crummy little part? And why brake what isn't broken?

Was at a Toyota/Scion dealership for service and stepped into the showroom. One of the salesguys mentioned that they were selling new Scions at 3% off sticker (end of month push).

#351 of 356 '08 Scion xD RS 1.0 I do not like....
Jul 15, 2008 (6:57 am)
I purchased the Scion xD RS 1.0 on 7.10.08. I know it's a great car (mechanics/engine/Toyota) but "What were they thinking?" There are a few improvements that would make this car perfect.
Add a cup holder on the dash that pops out for the driver, the passenger has one. The power button for the radio is on the right side of the unit. It is easier for my passenger to use. I am getting rid of this radio tomorrow.
Put the "series" numbered plate upfront on the console for everyone to see. The plate is hid from view. In fact, you have to get down on your hands and knees to see it.
The clock is in at the bottom of the console difficult to see. The location of the clock is really last minute.
This car was not "built" for me...my demographics but I wanted small and dependable. I am happy but somewhat annoyed with the imperfections.
I know the car is

We rent them at our dealership - Camelback Scion in Phoenix AZ. Also I know that Enterprise in San Diego does. We sell them cars and yes at the same price everyone pays. NO body gets a discount on the car unless posted in the dealership.
