Have you ever seen www.tundrasolutions.com? I went to www.ask.com and typed in "Scion Xa repair problems" and found references on www.tundrasolutions.com to TSB's for the leaking problem (evaporative drain hose?) and the "pulling to the side" problem. In fact, my dealer gives alignment checks and free alignments -- so someone realizes some of these things are real problems. My 2006 Xa has weird ventilation problems -- it doesn't seem able to pull in outside fresh air. No luck on my first attempt with the dealer. Stay tuned. Hope you can get some help and some answers. I love this little car, but the weird problems can suck the fun out of it. Take care.

Toyota finally acknowleged my leaking 2006 xA is a
Too many attempts to repair it & no resolution.
Toyota is repurchasing the vehicle (full price) since the xA has gone out of production.
I'm glad to be getting rid of the car. It's been a giant headache.

How can I change wiper blades on my Scion xB?

You can either buy new rubbers and slide them into the blades, which is cheaper but more time-consuming, or buy complete new blades and clip them into the wiper arms.
#105 of 157 Body above wheel
Apr 03, 2007 (2:34 pm)
Hi, I am currently experiencing loud banging noises when i drive across my rear. It appears that my front wheels have a coating on the body metal above the wheels but my rear ones don't. Would anyone happen to have any clue of what this substance is called? Or maybe another way of preventing this noise and/or sealing the exposed metal?

What does driving across your rear mean?
Are you saying your rear tires have rubbed the factory mastic undercoating off the rear wheel wells?
What size wheels and tires do you have, and has anyone modified your suspension?

WoW. I'm glad you got some kind of resolution. What did you get for a replacement car? Take care.

Toyota is buying back the for the full price. I ordered a Toyota Matrix XR back on Feb. 23. No new car yet. The dealer says they can't get a red stickshift. And so far they haven't found me a black stickshift either. So I'm still driving the and completely sick of the situation.
#110 of 157 xA static??
Apr 10, 2007 (5:56 pm)
I was wondering if there are any xA owners out there (other than myself) who get shock all the times when they exit their vehicle? Every time when I fully got out of the car and touch the door (to close it), I got a big shock from it. I was wondering if this is the way I drive, the area I live in, or just my xA? Does anyone know how to prevent a shock like that? Thanks!
