What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 2010 Scion tC?
Take care of your Scion tC and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your tC. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. There's no need to guess when it's time to get tC maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 2010 Scion tC maintenance schedule!
This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Scion themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your tC running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2010 Scion tC problems later.
Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2010 Scion tC for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your tC's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.
Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2010 Scion tC? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your tC may need a replacement battery sooner. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Scion tC battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty tC) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Scion tC could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.
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 2010 Scion tC engine. See Scion's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2010 tC in the chart at the top of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. 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 2010 Scion tC.
