Why Won’t My Car Start?

May 05, 2015 - 2:08 PM - by

Without a doubt, every owner dreads the moment when their car won’t start. What should you do? Who should you call? Can you fix it yourself? Here’s a list with ten common reasons why cars don’t start up and what you can do about it.

'The first step is to define the no start' said Joe Spadafora, certified instructor at Universal Technical Institute’s Exton, Pennsylvania campus. Spadafora spent the majority of his career in working in the service department of several dealerships and receiving factory training from GM. He’s certified as a Master Technician and certified by Chrysler as a Dodge Viper technician . He also holds certifications from Subaru, Suzuki, Toyota, Lexus and Scion as well, so if there’s something wrong with your car, chances are he’s seen it before.

To diagnose the reason your car isn’t starting, you need to pay attention to happening when you turn the key. 'Does the engine crank but not actually start or, when you turn the key, does literally nothing happen?' he said.

Scion's Next Model Will be a Toyota, Won't be a Crossover » News

With two out of a planned three new Scion models revealed at the New York Auto Show, we sat down with brand boss Doug Murtha to discuss what’s coming next for Toyota’s youth-focused brand.

The latest rejuvenation for Scion, the current plan doesn’t stray from the brand’s origins.

Murtha, Scion group vice president, explains how partnerships with other automakers, as well as sharing within the larger Toyota lineup has long been a part of the product strategy. “It’s pretty much been the case since Scion’s launch,” he said, pointing to the xA, xB and even the recently axed iQ.

He wouldn’t clarify just what’s coming next but did drop a significant hint, stating that the new model, “falls more into the iM model,” and, “is a product that will be sold in other markets that will be sold in the US as a Scion, as

2016 Scion iM Seeks to Lure Young Drivers

Apr 01, 2015 - 10:01 AM - by

The past six years haven’t been kind to Scion at all, but Toyota is hoping to turn things around for its youth-oriented brand starting with a car called the iM.

It’s a new five-door hatchback based on the Toyota Auris, packaged with a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine connected to either a six-speed manual transmission or a CVT. The powertrain generates 137 hp and an undisclosed measurement of torque that are sent to the front wheels. Models with the CVT also come with paddle shifters that can cycle through seven predefined ratios meant to mimic actual gears.

Scion hopes to attract young customers with the iM. Like the rest of it’s products, they offer one trim package to create a WYSIWYG approach to car sales. Just in case you didn’t grow up on a steady diet of Internet junk food, that’s an acronym for 'What You See Is What You Get.'
