They consult with you about the issue and necessary repairs before starting their work. Then, when you leave our parking lot with the repairs already done, you can have peace of mind in knowing our expert technicians completed the work properly.
Like any line of vehicles, Scion had some common problems. We explore some of these below:

Check Engine Light Due to Defective VVT-i Controller

Common to the xA, xB and tC models, illumination of the check engine light is sometimes caused by a defective VVT-i controller. This controller changes cam timing to ideal power.

Our certified auto mechanics at Creech Import Repair frequently find this root cause when performing diagnostic service for our Scion customers. It is easily repaired with updated parts and service. The most common year models affected are 2004, 2005, 2006, 2008, 2009 and 2010. The check engine light typically turns on with this problem between 30,000 and 175,000 miles on the odometer.

Excessive Oil Consumption

Some Scion models burn more oil than they should, a problem often seen by Creech Import Repairs knowledgeable auto mechanics. We have seen this in multiple models, but most often in the tCs and xBs. This problem is often indicated by illumination of the engine oil warning light on the multi-function display.

According to our expert auto mechanics, the most common causes for excessive oil consumption are not changing oil frequently enough and the resulting engine sludge. Excessively worn piston rings are another cause. The year models of Scions most frequently affected by this problem include every year from 2005 to 2016. The problem typically appears sometime after 50,000 miles on the odometer.

Squeaking when Applying Brakes in Reverse

Particularly in the Scion xA and xB, some vehicles exhibit a squeaking noise when applying the brakes during reverse motion. Affected models typically started squeaking sometime after driving the vehicle 10,000 miles. Many experienced the problem much later in their vehicle's life such as at around 150,000 miles on the odometer.

This problem that primarily affected model years 2004, 2005, 2006, 2008 and 2010 was eventually addressed by Scion engineers. They redesigned the brake pad and anti-squeal shim shapes. They also changed instructions for the automaker to apply more grease during assembly. Creech Import Repair technicians can fix this problem through parts replacement and other service.
