Yeah its pretty plain, but its an auto so you only use the knob once or twice per drive cycle. :D

Yeah it kinda does doens't it.

I'm actually really enjoying the car. The power has picked up a bit now that the engine is breakign in and the handling / dartign through traffic factor is just awsome.

I guess Toyota did a small car good this time, unlike the Yaris and xA that didn't score well in the handling dept. I have a feeling I'm gonna be seeing a lot of those around here pretty soon.

OT: Good thing you don't live here, Scions are now considered the "de riguer" cars for (drug)pushers here. Seems they have really embraced the mark.

Figured I would do a 3 month 4200 mile update.

I like the car quite a bit more than I did when I got it. I don't know if it was an ECU learning thing, the colder weather, or the engine breaking in, but it is WAY peppier than when I first got it. I've actually beat a few cars off the line and I don't hesitate to take an open lane knowing I will probably get out ahead of the average guy now. (Not because the tC is faster per se, but because most people don't leave a stoplight at WOT)

We've had the car on a 210o mile round trip road trip for Xmas with 2 adults, 2 kids in carseats and a rediculous amount of luggage and I was VERY pleased to note that acceleration and braking did not seem to suffer noticeably from the extra load. It did take a bit of creativity to fit everything we wanted to bring though. We're averaging about 27-28 MPG which is pretty damn good considering the way I drive and the average cruising speeds of about 80-85 MPH.

Anyways another road trip to Florida is in store for 2 weeks from now. This time we're looking at about 2600 miles total. We'll see how it goes.

Cliff notes - very pleased with the car, its picked up some nice power and is quite fun to drive.

Those are two other Toyotas that I am interested in. I think the X-Runner is a more feasible choice, however if the Mazda Demios/2 comes out, that might make me change my mind.

Might I recommend picking up a FIVEaxis lip kit, it will definitely enhance the styling cues of the xD. You can pick it up at your nearest Scion Dealer through the Optomize Program

Yaris hatch with a 5 speed is a blast to drive in traffic.

Nope. The xD will be gone in a couple months and I will move on to somethign else. I never modify my daily drivers and I never keep them very long.

The Yaris nearly put me to sleep while driving one.

Because I can.

Probably a 2009 Corolla or Matrix.

Nice. So it's a 1.8 Liter engine ehh...

Do I smell a 2zz swap? :D I posted that up in the Scion xD forum in scionlife, most of the grocery getters thought it was a stupid idea.

But if all these K swaps are going in these little Fits...then there's gatta be somethin going there...
The Fit has been out in japan for 4 years now it just came over from the states all those swaps have been in those cars for years this is a new car plus no a/m support.

The Fit was originally called the City and the K series is only 2 years old. So they haven't been doing it too long.
