Scion xA Problems

AC Doesn't Blow Cold Enough

Air conditioning that doesn't blow cold enough could indicate the need for adjusting the cable for the temperature blend door.

Water Leak Due to Plugged AC Drain

The AC evaporator drain hose may become dislodged and cause a water leak on the passenger floor.

Squeaking Noise When Applying Brakes in Reverse

When backing up and applying the brakes, you may hear a squeaking noise. Scion engineers addressed this problem by modifying the shape of the brake pad and the anti-squeal shims; they also applied more grease during assembly.

Scion xA Recalls

Southeast Toyota Recalls 2005–2011 Vehicles Due to Incorrect Tire Labels

Southeast Toyota is recalling 2005–2011 models for failing to comply with federal safety standards on tire selection and rims. Affected models were sold without the proper load-carrying capacity modification labels, which may cause the driver to overload the vehicle, increasing the chance of a crash. Dealers will mail the correct labels to the customer or install the label free of charge.

Load Carrying Capacity Modification Labels Are Missing

The load carrying capacity modification label may be missing from the vehicle. This information provides maximum load carrying weights as well as information about required tires and wheels. If not present, an inappropriate load may be carried in the vehicle, increasing a safety risk. Toyota has supplied customers with a new label to affix to the vehicle. This recall began on August 18, 2009.

Aftermarket Cruise Control May Not Disengage as Expected

Some aftermarket cruise control systems installed for Southeast Toyota may not allow the engine to return to idle the first time the on/off switch is depressed while the system is engaged. The system will commonly disengage on the second attempt. This could result in higher that expected engine speed, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect and replace the cruise control module as necessary. This recall is expected to begin on March 7, 2007. The Gulf States Toyota recall number is P701.

Bought my 2006 xA new after telling every area dealer I wanted a white one with manual trans. Been driving it for 7 years now with just over 65000 miles on it. No big repair bills. Just new tires and regular scheduled maintenance. Still runs like new. Love it. You can feel every bump in the road - but hey, it's a little hatchback. Handles well. 32+ MPG. Love the stereo controls on the steering ...
