What to Know About 2016 Scion iM Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Scion iM, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, your iM has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine iM maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2016 Scion iM!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Scion, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your iM perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2016 Scion iM problems later.

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2016 Scion iM and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your iM. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2016 Scion iM? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your iM may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Scion iM battery, and so can frequent short drives. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your iM stranded. Your Scion iM won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2016 Scion iM running newer, longer. See Scion's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2016 iM in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2016 Scion iM.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Scion iM? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I switch my Scion iM to high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Scion iM? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  •  Why are my Scion dashboard lights on? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Scion iM in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
