What is the maintenance schedule for the 2013 Scion xD?

Here’s Why 2013 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 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine xD maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2013 Scion xD!

Scion knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your xD perform better, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2013 Scion xD problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Scion xD Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2013 Scion xD to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2013 Scion xD? 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). 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Scion xD battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Scion xD won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 2013 Scion xD's engine run smoother. See Scion's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2013 xD in the chart at the top 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2013 Scion xD? We can help with that, too!

Routine upkeep for your Scion xD suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Scion xD suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Scion xD's steering and suspension system.

If you skip recommended Scion xD services, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Scion xD cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is your Scion xD radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2013 Scion xD maintenance and repairs.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

2013 Scion xD Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2013 Scion xD. Get answers to common Scion xD maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Scion xD? 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? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Scion xD? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  •  Why are my Scion dashboard lights on? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Scion xD, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
