Does Your 2011 Scion tC Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2011 Scion tC, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your tC bounces, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2011 Scion tC in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Scion tC suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Scion tC Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 2011 Scion tC’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2011 Scion tC shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Scion tC shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2011 Scion tC’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2011 tC Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my tC's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Scion tC get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how Scion intended.
  • When should I have my Scion tC power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your tC is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Scion's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
  • What can cause my Scion tC to have a bouncy ride? If your shocks or struts are in bad shape, they can’t dampen road bumps like they should. This can cause your tC to bounce more than usual.
  • Why does my tC tilt forward when I hit the brakes? The forward dip in the front end of your tC when you brake is caused by the weight and momentum transferring to the front wheels. If your suspension system is in bad shape, it can fail to distribute this force, leading your front end to dip further downward.
  • How do I know if I have worn Scion tC shocks? If your tC shock absorbers are worn out, they won’t be able to properly dampen road bumps. You might experience a bouncy or unstable ride, especially over bumps or rough roads. Your tC might also feel like it sways or rolls as you turn.
