Is It Time For 2013 Scion xB Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2013 Scion xB, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your xB feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2013 Scion xB, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your xB suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Scion xB 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 xB Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2013 Scion xB’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your xB’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Scion xB shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your xB’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2013 xB Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my xB's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Scion xB? 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 does Scion xB power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Scion's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
  • What can cause my Scion xB 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 xB to bounce more than usual.
  • Why does my xB front end dip forward when I brake? As you brake, the forward momentum of your xB combined with its weight sends a ton of force to its front end. A damaged or worn suspension system can cause the front end to compress and dip even further.
  • How can I tell if the shocks on my Scion xB are bad? Worn xB shock absorbers can cause your vehicle to feel like it's bouncing or hopping over bumps instead of absorbing the impacts smoothly. You may also experience more body roll when turning.
