Model Highlights

Scion's 2008 xD is a small, five-door hatchback that's geared toward young urban dwellers on a budget who need a small car yet want many of the interior appointments or flashy features of a larger, more expensive vehicle.

A 128-horsepower, 1.8L four-cylinder engine provides power for the front-wheel-drive xD, along with either a four-speed automatic or five-speed manual transmission. According to the EPA's new 2008 fuel economy estimates, the xD returns 27 mpg in the city and 33 on the highway with the standard five-speed.

The xD comes equipped like a much more expensive car, with conveniences like air conditioning, cruise control, steering-wheel audio controls, a 160-watt, six-speaker AM/FM/CD sound system that's MP3 and satellite compatible, a first-aid kit, and power windows, locks, and mirrors, all included in the base price.

Front seat-mounted side air bags, front and rear side-curtain bags, and anti-lock brakes are standard on the xD, while vehicle stability control is the only factory option. There's a long list of dealer-installed options that give the xD a flashier appearance, sportier sound, or improved handling, depending on customer needs.

One of the keys to the xD's more aggressive outward appearance is the combination of flared wheel wells along with large, 16-inch wheels and tires. The xD's interior has been completely redesigned. There's a more conventional layout, with the gauge cluster now located in front of the driver, though the speedometer and tachometer are located within the same cleverly laid-out gauge, which resembles a sophisticated watch face. The back seat folds forward neatly for expanded cargo space.


Model News

The former Scion xA has been redesigned and re-named the xD for 2008, and it gets a larger, 1.8L four-cylinder engine. Sold only as a five-door hatchback, it's new inside and out, with more aggressive exterior styling and a new interior design; the xD's much-maligned central speedometer has been moved in front of the driver. And like the other cars in the Scion lineup, it comes fully loaded with safety and convenience features.


Value Writeup

The new 2008 Scion xD gets a more contemporary, aggressive appearance than the xA it replaces, which should appeal more to the urban buyers who might choose it for its easy-to-park size, excellent fuel economy, and rather roomy interior for its size. The new 1.8L engine brings more performance than many other budget-priced small cars, yet fuel efficiency is among the best in its class.

Compared to most of the small-car competition in this budget-priced category, the xD has much more standard equipment and especially ranks as a great value for those who want a well-equipped car. Scion's line of accessories also provides the opportunity to get a much more distinctive, likeable car for just a little more money, and this can often be wrapped in with financing.

Summary
Toyota is recalling certain model year 2007-2009 Camry, Camry Hybrid, RAV4, Corolla, Corolla Matrix, Tundra, Sequoia, Highlander, Highlander Hybrid, Yaris, Scion xB, Scion xD and Pontiac Vibe vehicles. The power window master switch assemblies in some of these vehicles were built using a less precise process for lubricating the internal components of the switch assemblies. Irregularities in this lubrication process may cause the power window master switch assemblies to malfunction and overheat.

Consequence
If the switch overheats, it may melt, possibly resulting in a fire.

Toyota will notify its owners, and dealers will inspect the switch and apply a special grease that inhibits heat build up or replace any switch damaged by the defect, free of charge. Toyota owners that experience a problem with a switch should not attempt to make repairs, but should contact their Toyota dealer or the Toyota Customer Experience Center at 1-800-331-4331. General Motors will contact the Pontiac Vibe owners affected by this recall and GM dealers will inspect and repair switches as necessary. Those owners may contact Pontiac Customer Care at 1-800-762-2737.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Summary
Toyota is recalling certain model year 2006-2010 Yaris vehicles manufactured August 22, 2005, through May 12, 2010, and 2008-2010 Scion xD vehicles manufactured April 4, 2007, through May 12, 2010. In the affected vehicles, the springs used for the seat rails on the driver's seat and the seat rails of the front passenger seat of three-door models may break.

Consequence
If the spring breaks, the seat may not lock in position. In the event of a vehicle crash, the seat could move increasing the risk of injury to the seat occupant.

Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the seat rail, and replace it with a new one, if necessary, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
