The good and the bad!
I have had my Scion since 2008 second owner though. I just recently hit 100k on it, I have noticed that the oil light pops on when you brake. As I work for a Toyota dealer its not a problem to see my tech to have it worked on easily and with no pressure. Turns out that that engine has a issue with burning oil! but this is the good news.. if it burns more than a quart within 1,500 miles Toyota will pay for new piston rings and basically a engine over haul. They are going to top up the oil, and have me drive it, then I wil bring it back to see if it is loosing a quart or more. With the exception of this issue this car has ran great, I still have the original transmission in it and air conditioner unit etc etc. I hope that this test is in my favour and the work can be done for free. I hope this info helps other owners having this common issue.
