Scion ProblemsCable Adjustment Needed if 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.
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.
An illuminated Check Engine Light could be caused by a defective VVT-i controller, which changes cam timing for optimal power. Updated parts are available and the repair may be covered under the powertrain warranty.

Scion RecallsPassenger Frontal Air Bag Inflator Ruptures On Deployment
The passenger frontal air bag inflator may rupture on deployment, causing metal fragments to come through the air bag and injure occupants. Dealers will replace the passenger frontal air bag inflator or in some cases replace the air bag assembly free of charge to resolve the concern.
The vehicle certification label may indicate the improper load carrying capacity rating for the vehicle. This is because accessories were added to them after the vehicle was built, changing the available load that the vehicle can handle carrying. Vehicle owners will be provided a corrected label and dealers will aid in installing them free of charge to resolve the concern.
The ignition key may be removable from the ignition lock cylinder even though the vehicle transmission may not be shifted into the "park" position. Dealers will inspect the ignition key and transmission interlock wiring connections and will correct them as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.
