About Scion iM

The first Scion iM was called Toyota Auris introduced in 2006. Though Toyota Auris has been produced through two generations, however, it was not sold in North America until 2015 as Scion iM. Due to the discontinuation of the Scion marque, Scion iM will be rebranded as the Toyota Corolla iM from August 2016 for model year 2017.

The hybrid version was powered by 1.8 L petrol engine with an electric motor.

Scion iM Common Problems & Maintenance Tips
No matter how good quality the Toyota manufactured Scion iM is, it still will wear out as accumulation of mileage. And according to Scion iM owners, here are the common problems happened to it:
First, hesitation at acceleration. In general, this problem has close relation with the engine performance. Scion iM owners said that besides slow acceleration, poor fuel economy, dirty exhaust, squealing or metallic sounds would happen a lot. Sometimes, the iM would even be in a no start condition. So if the Check Engine Light on your Scion iM starts to come on, the inspection on spark plug, oil filter, air filter, oxygen sensor, drive belt should not be left out.
Second, premature braking and suspension failure. On Scion iM, drivers sensed the premature braking failure signs as noisy brakes and pulsating brake pedals. What's more, if brakes responded poorly and slowly or obvious score marks can be found at the rotor, brake pad set, brake drum and brake disc deserve a thorough inspection. As suspension failure often shows as clunking or rattling noise as well as loose steering wheel and poor handling, strut housing, sway bar bushing, coil spring insulator and sway bar links are the vulnerable auto parts in Scion iM.
However, a well-functioned and high performance Scion iM needs more. A properly operated seat belt, a bright headlight, headlight bulb, fog light bulb and an excellent wheel seal is far more enough, though they are used daily and should get maintenance more often. But what you should keep in mind is never ignore any auto part in your Scion iM.
