And now that it's done, what do you think? Does it feel like a new car? Maybe sort of, but without the new car smell?

It is a refreshing feeling, My XB has 130,000 miles on it and it has new pistons, rings valve cover gaskets and whatever else new that they had to put in it to do the job. I will keep an eye on the oil level at least for a little while, ( I used to keep an alarm on my phone to remind me to check it every week ) It feels like it has a little more pep than it did. I will probably put new plugs in again soon since they were burning oil, even though they only have 30,000 miles on them .It does almost feel like having a new car.

Anyone know how to find out if you have the engine that has the oil consumption? I have a 09 Scion XB.

Just curious, the later GEN2 seeing it this too? I wonder, since Toyota has the fix has it been applied to production? I just leased a 2015 but want to keep this mind when it comes buying it or leasing something new.

To ScanoMe49: this should apply to all xBs since we all have the same 2AZ engine, 2008 to present.

To gedster314: U2BROTHR who owns a 2013 (in Canada), NYxB and autobotguy (both in the US) with 2012 cars, and myself with a 2011 in California all received letters. So even the more recent xBs are covered. Not sure if this applies to the 2015s but it probably does.

Exclamation 2nd Gen Scion xB oil consumption TSB

Hello everyone. I have a 2010 Scion xB that I use to commute from Arizona to Oregon. I had 146,000 miles on it as of 3/1/2016. I took it to the local Toyota / Scion dealer for a window switch recall and they also did the oil consumption test and it failed (barely)... They put in new pistons and rings, fresh synthetic oil and filter, and gave me a free rental car for 3 days. All the parts, labor, and loaner car were free. FYI - if you have an xB take it in for the recall

Same thing for the engine wiring harness on some xB's, you have to be within a certain mile/time frame. If the parts aren't made right replace them if they fail or before would be better. This is getting out of hand and won't sit well when shopping for a new replacement vehicle.
