I haven't seen many issues with mine, but I only have 20K. Will keep an eye on it.

From reading other Toyota owner's experiences with similar issues it seems that the oil consumption gets progressively worse.

It very well may. When it gets a little warmer outside this weekend I plan to check my plugs to see if they're fouled and/or if they look uniform across all four cyclinders. While I'm at it, I'd like to check if the compression of each cylinder is up to spec (I guess I'll call autozone to see if they loan that tool out).

Default PDF of Toyota TSB 0094-11

For late night reading...

Attached is a pdf of the TSB. I still think Scions should be included.

hbgti, thanks for the read on the fix, but I wouldn't trust that type of a repair to the tech's working at my Scion dealer. From what I've read on here and other forums not many people feel comfortable taking their Scions in for routine service, ie oil changes, they messed up 2 oil changes on my xB and I've haven't been back.

I will probably just use a 5/30 syn oil and see how that works for my next oil change.

By the time Scion gets around to doing something about this problem most of the 08/09 xB's will be well over 100k and won't fall into their recall fix.

Again, thanks for the information!

I agree this isn't a simple TSB for the techs (which is why Toyota may have waited so long to release it).

I also contend that many of the current Toyota owners that this may affect are already over their 60K mile limit.

Maybe if Toyota gets enough complaints, they may extend the TSB to 100K for Toyotas/Scions (wishful thinking?).

The TSB states (more than a qt. in 1200 miles) is a far cry from where you and I are at right now, so I would think for us to use that much oil in that amount of miles we would be at or over 100k. I would also believe that you would have to prove that you changed your oil every 5k even though it looks like it isn't a problem with the lack of changing the oil as bad parts/workmanship on Toyota's part.

I believe the better solution would be just replace the engines in question with quality rebuilt engines from a manufacturer that can handle this type of work, then send the old engine back to be remanufactured for install in the next vehicle that this TSB covers.

Give a 12 month/12k warranty on the rebuild.

Tech's that rebuild engines daily would be better equipped and done to higher standard.

Sorry for my slip , and thanks for the clarification ! My 2008 is at 10K, so probably nothing to observe, but given I've only 1 year left in the 5, I'm definitely interested!
