About Scion tC

Considered the spiritual successor to the Toyota Celica, the Scion tC was produced by a renowned Japanese automotive manufacturer Toyota Motor Corporation from 2004 to 2016 as a sport compact vehicle exclusively for the North American market. The Scion tC was replaced by the Toyota 86 eventually after being manufactured for two generations although during its lifetime, it helped many racers to win racing matches. 
The first-generation Scion tC made its debut at the January 2004 NAIAS with sales beginning in June 2004 as a 2005 model. Back then, it came with only one trim level and only one body style: 2-door hatchback coupe with five seats. The Scion tC was powered by a 2.4 L inline 4-cylinder engine rated at 161 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque and engine sent power through either a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic transmission. Then the current-generation tC debuted at the April 2010 New York Auto Show for 2011. It came in two trim levels: base and the limited edition "10 Series". It still got power from the 2.5 L inline 4-cylinder power but the output became 180 horsepower and 174 pound-feet of torque. And power is sent through a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission.

Preparation is always the key, thus, you still need to pay more attention to these common problems on your tC: 
First, engine failure is the most serious issue that drivers meet during driving. Normally, once the engine has something wrong, the vehicle is on the verge of breaking down. Some experienced drivers even concluded some helpful symptoms to diagnose this issue as early as possible. They stated that at starting, the engine may make some metallic sounds, then the engine performance reduces gradually, it may misfire, stall or suffer from starting, and due to the failing cooling system, these symptoms will deteriorate. In the end, you may notice a decrease in power while acceleration and fuel economy or even illuminated Check Engine Light, in case these symptoms arise, please make sure the oil filter, spark plug, drive belt, ignition coil, oxygen sensor, radiator hose, air filter, fuel tank and engine control module. 
Second, suspension failure is also a hazard for Scion tC drivers as though it normally is not as serious as engine failure but it still could result in fatal consequences. At first, you may only hear strange sounds from underneath the vehicle, which is also the main reason of uneven tire wear and tilting vehicle; gradually, you may find it hard to control the vehicle due to intense car vibration and loose steering wheel, which is the main reason of fatal accidents. Once your vehicle is also suffering similar symptoms, please get the coil springs, coil spring insulator, wheel bearing, strut housing and steering knuckle inspected thoroughly.
