All power is useless without stopping power. Make a brake service appointment today and let our expert technicians take care of your 2010 Scion xB.
It’s best to get a brake check before your Scion xB shows signs of brake troubles. We make it easy by providing free brake checks to all of our customers so that we can help stop problems before they start. You can request a free brake check as a standalone service or in addition to work you're already having done on your Scion, like a tire repair or an oil change. If life has gotten in the way of everyday car care, keep the following brake information in mind.
Brake problems include unusual noises, a vibrating pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell near your tires, an illuminated brake dashboard light, or a gut feeling that something’s not right. You know your Scion xB best. And you don't have to wait for something to go wrong. Stay ahead of problems with a free brake check. Vehicle manufacturers like Scion generally recommend that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles. That includes inspecting the parking brake. Brake service and/or repair should be performed as necessary. When in doubt, visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick inspection. Most of our locations are open seven days a week and in the evening for free brake checks. Our expert technicians are happy to examine your 2010 Scion xB brakes, brake pads, and other braking components. Properly maintaining your brake system is so important.
How often should you change your 2010 Scion xB’s brake pads? It depends on you and your driving style. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 40,000 miles. Certain factors, like driving mostly on highways and braking smoothly, can help your brake pads last longer. If you often haul heavy loads or ride your brakes, your brake pads may wear out sooner. Your brake pad replacement interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your xB right now. Are you still driving with the same pads as when you bought the car? Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Scion xBs that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are pretty common for us, and we only use brake parts that meet or exceed Scion's standards.
Your Scion xB may be powered by a strong engine. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. But if you can’t stop it, it’s as good as scrap metal. Don't wait if you're experiencing brake squeaks or a loss of braking power. Unresponsive brakes make it tough to give the road your best. What's more, waiting for things to figure themselves out can result in more damage to your brakes and your wallet. For example, if you drive with completely worn out brake pads, your rotors might start to warp, and the metal-to-metal grinding may compromise other healthy parts. We can help you steer clear of further brake damage. Get your 2010 Scion xB brakes fixed at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We offer a variety of brake services like brake pad/shoe replacement, brake rotor/drum refinishing, brake fluid exchange/bleeding, and brake caliper and wheel cylinder installation.
