My ride for today was a scion DX

Actually I was in a way angry as well as amused to hear was going to drive this car as a loner car, which was given to me by a local body shop.(i was getting this car for free and i didn;t want the lady who hit my car pay for a car ) I must say either I have a very shitty taste of cars or that I had a very low expectation of this car. My experience is as follows I was pretty impressed with the car I drove it for the whole day and didn’t see the gas gauge dip. It’s a car with a lot of space the Ac works well and seems to be quite good but the pioneer audio was shitty, brakes were ok the interior space was good. The car seems to be best up till 60-70 miles (my car usually wakes up at 90) its not a car you want to be in if you get in a wreck .the door is light I almost pulled it out. The car gets no respect what so ever people look at you and you blush with embarrassment. And the people who you know will look at you with sarcasm. In all it’s a nice car low on gas and cheap on price. I don’t know why but for some reason small 4 cylinders cars feel much faster that they are.

I felt the same way about the Ford Taurus loaner I had. I almost had another accident while hiding from pedestrian view.
