I have a XD 40 in subcompact, and have yet to have an issue with it. I've only put about 500 or so bullets through it but like I said not even a remote sense of issue.
Maybe it's you? Are you properly maintaining the gun? Any pistol will have issues if it is poorly cared for or worse made to jam by improper handling. Running it through dirt, leaving it in pocket for lint.
Very nice gun by the way.
