I've had to do all of this stuff with my car recently, and I'm pretty sick of it now honestly. I just might actually go and get a new car tomorrow and trade my old clunker in for whatever I can get. I had asked earlier this year about Volkswagens, but I hear their service is very bad. I know two people with Scions, and they do nothing but rave about their warranties. I was looking around earlier today, and the new Scion xD looked pretty interesting to me, and I can afford it. Basically, if you have a Scion, tell me if it's good or bad. I just want a decent looking car that I can put my stereo system into and has decent gas mileage that won't break the bank. EDIT: I am now definitely considering a Honda FIT. I like the way the car looks, and the Sport trim model doesn't break the bank. EDIT 2: Seems the Scion tC is what I want, even if it costs a bit more. Pretty much everything I'm looking for. I'm willing to pay an extra couple of grand for a bigger car with an actual armrest, proper gauges, etc.
