2013 Scion xD Maintenance and Service Schedule

When should you have your 2013 Scion xD suspension system inspected or repaired?

When To Get 2013 Scion xD Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2013 Scion xD, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your xD jolts, pulls 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 xD, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your xD suspension system needs repair, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If parts of your Scion xD 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 xD Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2013 Scion xD suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your xD’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Scion xD shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2013 Scion xD suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2013 xD Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Scion's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why should my Scion xD get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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.
  • When should I have my Scion xD power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Scion's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
  • Why is my Scion xD bouncing so much? If your shocks or struts are in bad shape, they can’t dampen road bumps like they should. This can cause your xD to bounce more than usual.
  • Why does my xD front end dip forward when I brake? As you brake, the forward momentum of your xD 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.
  • What are the signs that the shocks on my Scion xD need replacing? 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.
