Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Scion FR-S

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2016 Scion FR-S and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your FR-S's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2016 Scion FR-S. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your FR-S may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Scion FR-S battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Scion FR-S won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2016 Scion FR-S engine. To learn how often Scion recommends you have the oil changed in your 2016 FR-S, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2016 Scion FR-S.

Maintaining your Scion FR-S steering and suspension system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate Scion FR-S steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Scion FR-S's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Scion FR-S maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Scion FR-S cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Scion FR-S? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2016 Scion FR-S maintenance and repairs.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

2016 Scion FR-S Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2016 Scion FR-S. Get answers to common Scion FR-S maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Scion FR-S alignment checked? You know your Scion FR-S better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I switch my Scion FR-S to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Scion FR-S engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Scion? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Scion FR-S, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
