What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 2012 Scion xD?

Here’s Why 2012 Scion xD Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Scion xD to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your xD could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your xD, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2012 Scion xD!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Scion themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your xD running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2012 Scion xD problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Scion xD Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2012 Scion xD for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your xD. 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.

Could your 2012 Scion xD be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Scion xD battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your xD stranded. Your Scion xD could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2012 Scion xD engine. To learn how often Scion recommends you have the oil changed in your 2012 xD, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2012 Scion xD.

Maintaining your Scion xD steering and suspension system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. 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 xD steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement.

2012 Scion xD Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 2012 Scion xD. Get answers to common Scion xD maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Scion xD alignment checked? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Scion xD? If your Scion xD has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Scion? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Scion xD to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
