Scheduled Maintenance for Your 2006 Scion xA

What is the maintenance schedule for the 2006 Scion xA?

Here’s Why 2006 Scion xA Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Scion xA to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your xA. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get xA maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2006 Scion xA!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Scion, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your xA running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2006 Scion xA problems later.

Overview of Essential Scion xA Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2006 Scion xA for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your xA's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 2006 Scion xA be ready for a new battery? 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). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Scion xA battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your xA stranded. Your Scion xA won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2006 Scion xA running newer, longer. To learn how often Scion recommends you have the oil changed in your 2006 xA, 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. 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 2006 Scion xA.

Routine upkeep for your Scion xA suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide Scion xA 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 xA's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Scion xA maintenance, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. 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 xA engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Scion xA radiator? We can take care of that. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2006 Scion xA maintenance.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.

2006 Scion xA Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2006 Scion xA. Get answers to common Scion xA maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Scion xA? You know your Scion xA 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 does my Scion xA need 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 xA engines.
  •  Why are my Scion dashboard lights on? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Scion xA 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.
