I can not understand how Toyota want you to spend 2,000 dollars fix in a toyota scion 2012 replacing the whole rack & pinion when I only need the inner tie rods, my rack & pinion is in good condition but they do not offer the inner tie rods and you can not find them online. How you make a car and not offer the parts to fixed. The rack & pinion cost 600 dollars plus labor. I call toyota and they don't know what they talking about telling that is a whole assembly. They lie you can take out the inner tie rod. I did by my self but I have to put them back because no body sell them. People think twice if you want to buy a scion because you will be in the same position that me. This is ridiculous.

I bought my 2016 Scion iA preowned with 91k miles on it a month ago. For a Toyota product I expected better. Transmission made a whine noise and I had to get the dealer to replace it under their crappy used car warranty. Got it back and it made noises like the engine was falling out. Had it towed back to the dealer and they said mounts/dampers were loose so they tightened them up. Aside from these issues, two of the infotainment buttons stick to where they can’t be pressed. The infotainment screen has been cutting off while driving for no reason. Bluetooth connectivity and built in apps often don’t work. The car shakes like riding an old tractor when transmission is in gear. I don’t know what’s wrong with it now. Also, the rear door seals on both doors are falling down.

    Not too happy with the dealer about the consumption oil in my Scion XB Toyota 2010. My car is having some issues about this and now the dealer and the headquarters are refusing to fix my car. They said that my car is over 150,000 miles and nothing they can do. I never received a letter from headquarters or the dealer about this issues. Thank You, Víctor **. Phone number **.

    2012 Scion xB paint peeling off of roof in sheets. Called Scion and Toyota and was told paint is no longer under warranty. I have never seen a car paint peel off down to the metal without having any damage to the car. Have been told that the manufacture did not put the binder in the primer, therefore the paint peels off. Since the parts of the car are painted at different locations, just the roof and side panels seem to be affect by the complete peeling off of paint to the metal.

    I have a 2012 Scion XB in which the paint on the roof and side quarter panels have been peeling. Spoke to local Toyota Dealer... never returned call. I now need to pay $2500.00 to repaint the vehicle as the original paint job was defective.

    My Scion TC is reliable and enjoyable to drive and economical to maintain. The interior is comfortable and the front seats give good support. The air conditioning and heating work well. The controls on the steering wheel are easy to use. I like the bucket seats, manual transmission gives a sporty feel to drive, adequate power from the engine, power windows, cruise control and good sound system, sporty handling, sufficient storage capacity to carry luggage on a trip. The wheels are attractive. However, the glass sunroof rattles and adds heat to the interior of the car in warm weather. The area behind the gas filler door traps dirt and is difficult to clean.

    I loved the Scion TC. It drove well, had good pick up, and good gas mileage. The car looked nice and had a moon roof that I loved. It had airbags all around, it looks and handles like a sports car, but is considered a car so the insurance isn't as high as that of a sports car. But if I could change anything about the car, I would make the ride a little smoother, and eliminate the blind spots.

    I had bought a Scion before and loved it. They were discontinuing that particular model so I bought the best largest in the line and am just as happy with it thankfully. My Scion xB is economical but it doesn't look cheap. It's sporty but not too rugged. The Seats are spacious and the ride is smooth. It's a fun car to drive and I always get compliments on it. The back seats are a little cramped, though. I've been told by passengers it's not the roomiest back there but making it bigger would make the car bigger and I like it's compactness.

    Had my 2006 Scion TC for four years and has over 200,000 miles on it and I've had no major problems at all. I think I replace the alternator at one point. Tires because I drive a lot open that not a single problem.

    9 years ago today I bought my 2007 Scion tC within 2 years I had to replace my engine. There was no low oil warning indicators and the check engine light never came on. I’ve gone through numerous sets of tires… Not cheap either… The handle to my trunk broke off and had to be Gorilla glued back on. My sunroof refuses to close at times. And today I was left on the side of road yet again with a blown engine. I have two small kids and this car has been nothing but unreliable the whole time I’ve had it.
