About Scion xB

Attracting the young people enormously, Scion xB was produced by a renowned Japanese automotive manufacturer Toyota Motor Corporation but sold under Toyota's young-oriented Scion brand from June 2003 to December 2015 exclusively for the United States market as a subcompact and compact vehicle. Originally introduced as a modified and rebadged version of the Japanese-market subcompact Toyota bB, Scion xB was on Car and Driver Magazine's Top Ten Safe list as Scion's most popular model in the United States until 2011. But after being manufactured for two generations, xB was eventually replaced by the Scion iM.
The first-generation Scion xB was produced from June 2003 to December 2006 as a 5-door hatchback and its sales began for the 2005 model year. It came in with only one trim level but with several versions xB RS 1.0, xB RS 2.0, xB RS 3.0 and xB RS 4.0. The power source in the first-generation xB was a 1.5 L inline 4-cylinder engine rated at 108 hp and 105 lb-ft of torque mounted to a 4-speed automatic transmission. Then the second-generation xB debuted at the 2007 Chicago Auto Show. It came in with two trim levels: base and limited-production Release Series (RS 10.0). xB RS 5.0, 6.0,7.0,8.0 and 9.0 were available. And Scion xB was powered by a 2.4 L inline-4 producing 158 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque and engine sent power through either a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic transmission.

Scion xB Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

Scion xB delivers a good, well-controlled ride combined with responsive, nimble handling, MacPherson struts, thus, it is a very nice car. But because it could withstand the natural beat like any ordinary cars, you are supposed to learn about these common problems on xB as early as possible:
First, for Scion xB, the engine failure is the deadly issue. Generally speaking, if this issue did not be dealt with well, the vehicle will definitely be expired. Thus, some experienced Scion xB offered some symptoms to help drivers diagnose this problem. At first, the engine may give out some metallic sounds, then it starts to run roughly, misfires, stalls or even suffers from starting. Its performance also reduces dramatically so that it may lose power while accelerating. All these may get worse if you find the cooling system also fails and the engine keeps at a high operating temperature. In case your engine breaks down completely, you had better make sure the xB oil filter, ignition coil, air filter, radiator hose, water pump, drive belt, spark plug and thermostat are in good working condition all the time.
Second, braking and suspension failures are also troublesome for Scion xB drivers since both of them have a close relation with driving safety and comfort level. Braking failure is needless to talk about since it often manifests as brakes become noisy and poorly responded. If careful enough, you may also find score marks on the rotors. And the culprits are often the xB brake disc, brake pad set and brake drum. As for suspension failure, drivers find that it would result in vehicle tilting to one side, uneven tire wear, bouncing while driving, grinding noises while turning and poor handling. So please make sure the xB coil springs, coil spring insulator, shock and strut mount, wheel bearing and strut housing are working properly always.
For a Scion xB driver with a high awareness of safety, he must be well known about the significance of routine maintenance, especially on some vulnerable parts. Seat belt, for instance, is often made of resilient nylon but works under harsh conditions such as collision and sudden movements to hold occupants on the seats. Thus, routine maintenance on it is essential for driving safety. Other parts such as headlight, wiper blade, wiper arm, headlight bulb, fog light bulb, door handle and door lock should be maintained routinely as well.
