2008 Scion xB Q&A
2008 Scion xB Question: Does anybody have problems with the 2008 -2009 scion XB brakes?
it looks like i might have to replace breaks again?? Should toyota look for problem? will my warranty cover it? I had them done this time last year and 3 months later they had to replace defective break pads. Now its been a year and it looks like I'm having same problem. Thanks Christy - Visitor
My 2008 xb has 52000 miles on it and my brakes still have @10000 miles to go. No problems. - Visitor
I have replaced the pads and resurfaced or replaced the rotors on my 2008 Scion three times so far (65K). This was due initially to a grinding noise at 12K. The car is only used for commuting so they should have lasted much longer. I'm afraid the xB's have a bunch of other brake related problems, including a recall, that you can read about all over the internet. I am currently replacing a $500 rear bearing/speed sensor which knocked out the ABS, traction and stability systems. Something was never right about these brakes, the dealership of course denies any problem. At least they are easy to work on. - Visitor
Having the same issue. Replaced the front March 2010. Now replacing front and back. Toyota says this is common.....Our 2009 XB has 40000 miles now. 10000 on that last set of front pads. So this will be our last set at toyota dealer!!! To top it off Toyota changed our oil in May 2011 brakes were fine, 70% front and back were 40% they did not mention needing brakes anytime soon. but to get to this point in six weeks! - Visitor
