When To Get 2012 Scion xD Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2012 Scion xD, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your xD jolts, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2012 Scion xD in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Scion xD’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Scion xD Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2012 Scion xD suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Scion up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2012 Scion xD shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Scion xD shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your xD’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

2012 xD Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my xD's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Scion xD? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Scion intended.
  • Does my Scion xD power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your xD is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Scion service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
  • What can cause my Scion xD to have a bouncy ride? Damaged struts or shocks can't dampen road bumps properly, causing your vehicle to feel like a trampoline after each dip or bump.
  • Why does my xD tilt forward when I hit the brakes? When you brake, the forward momentum combined with your vehicle's weight sends a lot of force to the vehicle's front end. A bad suspension can cause all that weight and force to push the front end downward.
  • How can I tell if the shocks on my Scion xD are bad? Worn xD shock absorbers can't effectively absorb road impacts. Your xD might feel like it's swaying or rolling when making a turn. You may also feel like your xD shakes or rocks harder than normal when you go over a minor bump.
