I literally have to stick my hand out the window - press it down and guide it over the track and allow it to seal. I called Scion and was told that my 3 yr. After about 30000 the engine blew. I'm so aggravated with Toyota who's got the money to replace 2 engines in the same year due to manufacturing defects. In the 2nd month, after I've had the car ranging from 2012 to now 2016 I have put 15 sets of brakes on the car back and front here.
I am now suspecting that the rear wheels throw water up into the wheel well when in motion and that water gets in through the body and ends up on the rear floor. Needless to say, I now own a brand new Honda. During a turn, the tires weren't gripping the road well. The vehicle veered to the right and he applied brakes to slow car down. But it can be a failure of the disc or pressure plate, too.
I could not afford that and most importantly I am concerned for my dogs Buddy and Teddy's safety as well as my own. The consumer overcorrection to the left and proceeded into a ditch. On our Miata the slave failed and I replaced it. The contact has a police report. The pictures and video below are proof that this really happened. I ordered a new one online to replace. The best part was that I was still considering a new Toyota when I noticed the regular lines like Corolla are now incorporating the crappy defunct Scions!! My sunroof refuses to close at times.
So to my excitement I finally owned one. The brake pads are comparable to the thickness of a pack of gum. I made it to my workplace and the car completely cut off. After opening a case with scion customer care and being very frustrated, I finally asked for the matter to go to arbitration. I commute 70 miles every day under highway driving conditions and do very little stop-and-go driving. Then, my hatch started malfunctioning, sticking, and jamming. Had to be called back in order to finish my financing but I have been very satisfied overall.
It seems that Toyota tried to blame a manufacturing defect in their parts on customer's driving habits, which I, and others who had the same problem, highly dispute. I will never spend any money there or on another car from there. Original review: July 14, 2016 I own a 2011 Scion Xb with 35,360 miles on it. And today I was left on the side of road yet again with a blown engine. The vehicle veered to the right and he applied brakes to slow car down. After being a loyal supporter and purchasing a number of their vehicles since 1985 I feel I have been crapped on.
I replaced both the master and slave at the same time. So relatively new- I wanted a Scion for a long time. I have never seen a car paint peel off down to the metal without having any damage to the car. I highly recommend you don't buy anything related to the Scion line. I recently had a similar issue in my S2000. It is also possible that the master cylinder has failed or will fail before long.
The consumer overcorrection to the left and proceeded into a ditch. The whole truck needs repainted! Are car lots suppose to check on these things before they sell vehicles? There are no dead spots. It was really fun to bring up to redline, because it felt so right. Vehicle was using Cruise Control. Scion was a division of Toyota and was marketed towards millennials.
They were sold as Toyotas in Japan. Never heard of such a thing. The symptoms were sudden and immediately noticeable. Original review: April 20, 2017 A few months later I go on the weekend driving at normal speed on the highway about 45 to 50 mph and I notice that the check engine light comes out again. I want answers and this car is to be warrantied. Is this normal because the car is still new? Really odd failure, but they happen.
Edit - Just wanted to thanks everyone for the advice. During a turn, the tires weren't gripping the road well. What you do not expect is then the service center to care so little for what has happened that it starts defending the work done earlier well before even inquiring if the people associated are fine!! The back seats are a little cramped, though. I brought the vehicle to be inspected by the dealership from which it had been purchased. I was fortunate not to have massive engine issues some reported but overall the car was of crappy quality and required many expensive repairs including replacing cylinder heads and alternators more than once. With an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau, customer satisfaction continues to be extremely important to us. For the first 6 years all was great.
