2006 Scion xA Q&A
2006 Scion xA Question: Trend in Dying Air Compressors?
Just wondering if anyone's been hearing/seeing more issues with the A/C compressor. My 2006 Scion xA is JUST outside of warranty & apparently I need a new A/C compressor. Trouble is, when I call around to local parts stores to check pricing, they are all out, & so are their suppliers, which (to me) indicates that this is more of a wide-spread issue. Comments? Heard/Seen anything lately? My gut is saying recall. - Visitor
That definitely sounds like a common problem if the parts are flying off the shelves. I would call Toyota directly and ask for their help. - matte
I have the same problem--only 26000 miles on my car but JUST out of warranty. The shaft broke right off the compressor. I'll be calling Toyota tomorrow. I'll be pushing for a recall. Donna in Tucson - DED
I also have a 2006 Scion Xa Began having a/c intermittant. Toyota dealer determined electronics within the compressor failed and they replaced it under warranty. Now 16 months later, same problem. Sorry, one year warranty on parts. Was told it would be $2052 just for the part. Yeah, sounds fishy to me! - Visitor
