About Scion xA

Intended to appeal to younger buyers with savvy tastes, Scion xA was produced by a renowned Japanese automotive manufacturer Toyota Motor Corporation from 2004 to 2006 as a 5-door subcompact hatchback marked in the United States. Built based on the first-generation Toyota Vitz hatchback, xA, however, shared a platform with the Toyota Platz sedan. Though it was only produced through one generation, it soon gained a reputation as a sensible subcompact with a premium build quality and standard features. 
The model made its debut for the 2004 model year, just when the Scion brand was created in 2003 by Toyota. It came in only one body style: 4-door hatchback and only one single trim level but several series such as xA RS 1.0, xA XR 2.0 and xA XR 3.0. But it was well-stocked with standard features such as air conditioning; anti-lock brakes; power door locks, windows and mirrors; a rear wiper; and rear window defogger as well as a premium stereo - a sound system with a CD/MP3 player and an auxiliary input jack. During its lifetime, Scion xA was powered by a 1.5 L inline 4-cylinder engine rated at 103 horsepower and 105 lb-ft of torque and engine sent power through either a 4-speed automatic or a 5-speed manual transmission.

Scion xA Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

Being quite a competent commuter with a smooth ride on highways as well as maneuvering nicely on surface roads with surprisingly tight suspension for precise steering, Scion xA is very popular. But still, you have to focus on these common problems on xA just in case: 
First, transmission and suspension failures are the most common problems that appear on your car. And the transmission failure often causes the indicator not matching the gear and the vehicle not turning off, starting in another gear or not going into gear at all. And the xA shift cable is often the culprit. As for suspension failure, the clunking or squeaking sounds from underneath the vehicle, uneven tire wear, tilting and bottoming-out vehicle, as well as bouncing and intense vibration while driving all result from it. And all these symptoms could be attributed to the broken wheel bearing, coil springs, coil spring insulator and shock and strut mount. 
Second, engine failure is the most common and serious issue that drivers have ever met. Luckily for you is that you still could learn from some recognizable symptoms on the vehicle and get them solved as early as possible to prevent the worst situation. According to some drivers, there will be whining noises coming from the engine when it borders on breaking down, it will run roughly, misfire, stall or even suffer from hard starting. You may also notice that the engine has a decrease in performance and gas mileage since it not only keeps at a high operation temperature but also overheats a lot. If you could find leaking coolant on the ground and the Check Engine Light is lit, please inspect the spark plug, throttle cable, fuel filter, timing cover gasket, oil filter, radiator hose, exhaust manifold gasket, air filter, oxygen sensor and camshaft coil immediately. 
But in fact, the braking system is also very vulnerable, thus, please make sure the brake proportioning valve, brake disc and brake pad set are in fine condition all the time. What's more, routine maintenance on some vulnerable parts is also indispensable for you to lengthen your car's lifespan effectively. Seat belt, headlight, door lock cylinder, fog light bulb, headlight bulb antenna, wiper arm, door handle, emblem and wheel seal should be maintained on a regular basis for a safe and comfortable driving trip.
