Scheduled Maintenance for Your 2016 Scion tC

How often should I service my 2016 Scion tC?

Here’s Why 2016 Scion tC Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Scion tC, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your tC has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your tC, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2016 Scion tC!

Scion knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your tC perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2016 Scion tC problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Scion tC

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2016 Scion tC and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your tC. 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2016 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Scion tC battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. 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 tC won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2016 Scion tC engine. To learn how often Scion recommends you have the oil changed in your 2016 tC, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2016 Scion tC.

Routine upkeep for your Scion tC suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide Scion tC steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Scion tC's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Scion tC services, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Scion tC engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning.
