2006 Toyota SCION TC Engine problems & defects.

Toyota SCION TC Engine problems : 4.

On 08/28/2012 I Was Driving On The Freeway On My Way Home From Work When I Noticed The Radio Went Out. I Exited The Freeway. I Made It About 2 Blocks And Was At A Stop Light When Suddenly My Car Wouldn’t Advance. A Police Officer A Few Cars Behind Was Able To Push My Car To The Side Of The Road. I Had My Car Towed For Service To An Independent Non-toyota Mechanic. I Was Told I Needed A New Alternator. Given This Was A Necessary Repair I Went Ahead And Had The Repair Done. The Car Was Running Pretty Well Until 01/01/2013. On 01/01/2013 I Was Driving Home When I Noticed The Heater Stopped Working. Thinking Nothing Of It, I Kept Driving. On 01/04/2013 (about 75,000 Miles On The Vehicle) I Was Returning From An Errand (driving About 35 Mph) When I Noticed The Check Engine Light Had Turned On. I Pulled Over At A Gas Station To Fill Up And Called An Independent Non-toyota Mechanic To See If I Could Bring My Car In. I Was Instructed To Bring My Car In On 01/05/2013. After I Pulled Out Of The Gas Station And Drove A Few Blocks I Noticed The Needle For The Thermostat Was At The Hottest Level Possible. The Next Morning I Took My Car In, It Overheated In The 5 Minutes It To Me To Arrive To The Shop. I Was Informed The Engine Had Stripped Head Bolts And I Would Need A New Engine . I Called toyota/scion And They Didn’t Acknowledge Either The Alternator Or Stripped Head Bolts Being An Issue. The Representative, [xxx] Said They Would Open Up A Case And I Was Given The Following Case # 1301070610. I However Came Across Various Scion/toyota Owners Online Who Have Had This Issue. A Simple Google Search For “scion Stripped Head Bolts” Will Show Just How Many People Have This Problem. I Was Told By [xxx] That If In The Future Scion/toyota Recognizes The Issue(s) I May Receive A Reimbursement But There Is No Guarantee. This Is An Expensive Fix That I Just Can’t Afford.

    I had the same sequence of event with my 2007 Scion TC with 110k miles. We replaced the alternator and the engine seized days later. Did you get additional follow up from Toyota?
