The New Scion 2008 xD

    Hi - I am interested in a couple of after market products. The first is a rubber cargo mat the covers the entire back with the rear seats down. The second is a cage-like barrier used for hauling dogs. Does anyone know if either exist for the xD?

    Almost all the Car Magazines have ads in them for Mats. WeatherTech and I think they are connected business-wise, they list together. Very nice stuff, and a large inventory for cars, trucks, vans, suv's and crossovers. I have a hunch there may not be anything for an xD yet. My hunches aren't always right, though. I'm not going to check online and then rewrite this Post. I'll check after I sign out of here and see! ;)

    Hi, I just bought my Scion xD 2008 last Saturday and find really amazing with all the features and it runs really great and it's really roomy. I love it. Gas mileage is really very good. I just have a question if the door locks itself when you put in the gear because the one I bought it didn't do it automatically, does anybody have any idea about this? I would really appreciate any response that would help me here.

    I'd check great info and forums. I personally don't know. I have decided to hold out for something else w/ better mpg.

    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 ( 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? :mad:

    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).

    Hi can you tell me where this dealer was?

  • 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 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.
