STRUT BAR eliminates front end/suspension movement. Shock towers stay put like they're supposed to. Should be no problems with windshied cracks etc. due to body movement. You will feel it in your wallet if you remove stut bar.

Change your air cleaner element. Something most people don't even think about. Very important to at least knock the chunks out of it but better to replace with high quality cleaner element. Then check it every few thousand miles. Will make huge difference.

I thought I posted in here already; guess not. lol
My name is Andrea but you can call me "Andee." I live in Southeast Wisconsin. I currently own a '07 CSM tC. I bought him brand new back in Nov '06 which I traded in '06 SSM xA. I have put on over 100k miles already. It's great car! He doesn't plan on slowing down anytime soon. He is maintained well while being modded. Last weekend, I went to a Chicagoland Carmax for appraisal. They labeled him as TRD edition tC? Because of his TRD suspension and exhaust LOL So if anyone wants to fire questions about Scion-TRD parts...I'm your gal!
These cars are like wine...They get finer when aged.

#92 of 93 Gas Mileage down to 20 to 23 mpg
May 31, 2010 (1:05 pm)
I have a 2006 xB. Love it!!! But I am getting over a 100K miles on it now. My gas mileage was 40 mpg hiway when I purchased it. It has been decreasing a little along. I have used gas treatment to clean injectors, changed my spark plugs, and changed my air filter. What am I missing or does this happen with high mileage?
#93 of 93 I was told my scion xb was unsafe!!
Jun 08, 2010 (12:59 pm)
I'm the owner of a Toyota Scion xb limited addition car 1 of 2500 made. My story starts a few months ago.
I know the Scion is not on the recall list but it should be. My family i was on the freeway and we had a blow out at about 65 miles per hr. it was a very scary thing to happen. I hit my head and had head ache for a while. I contacted my Toyota dealer they told me to bring it in at this time my car only had about 15,000 miles on it. The tire seemed to be defective but they made us pay $70.00 to replace it. When we shouldn't have payed anything. We did and went on our mary way. Just recently I took my can in for it's 25.000 mile check up and was told my car is not safe to drive I asked is there something wrong with my car. I was told it is not safe to drive and got no answer about what really is wrong with my vehicle. They said they was in contact with the manufacture and we need to keep your car because it is not safe. They said if they can't release our car they will give us a loner. I went back to the dealer ship and talked to the certified Toyota mechanic and was shocked with what he said. He showed me my tires while the car was on the rack. Three of my tires are warn out. My car is to new for this to be happening. He told me that he has seen this same pattern on other Scion xb's and that hopefully Toyota can come up with a solution to fix all the other Scion xb's this is very dangerous because Scion xb owner have no idea that there car is unsafe.
By the way I have all this on tape I decided to record my visit to the dealership. I know Toyota is having their problems but they have not come clean with all the cars that they have in there dealership. After hearing what I have heard about the Scion xb l know that my car will never be safe and I don't feel safe in that car any more. My family rides in that car I've had my grand kids in that car and now to find out that this car is not safe I'm very disappointed in Toyota for keeping this info to themselves and not sharing this with us , we trusted them., yet again there still hiding stuff which keeps us driving unsafe vehicles even after being caught being deceptive.. They have jeopardize me and my whole family I'm very mad and don't want that car. That day on the free- way we almost lost our lives it's not a good feeling. The Toyota mechanic that gave us this info on Toyota was just doing his job and I thank him because when I ask him is their something wrong with me car I could see the manager shaking his head no to the mechanic (deceptive). This is what he wanted the mechanic to tell me but he did not. Then manager went home but when my wife and i came back to retrieve a loner vehicle( because they told us it was unsafe to drive our vehicle) the manager was not there , so my wife asked if she can see the tires and take footage of it. He told us the truth about other scion xb 's that were having the same issues, and that the Manufacture is aware of it and hopefully they will come up with a solution for all xd owners. I'm so glad he told us the truth. I did mention that i have explosive new video proving that Toyota knows about it and are still not warning Scion xb special addition owners about this dangerous issue about a totally different vehicle not the accelerator problems in other vehicle. This is totally new explosive video of my visit. I also want to turn it into the media, But i'm still trying to determine what is the best course of action for my family.
