Update: There is apparently a TSB by Toyota in Aug 2011 about a defective piston assembly which causes excessive oil consumption for 07-09 tC's and affected xB2 with the same 2AZ-FE engine as us.
55k Miles on this 2008 Scion tC. Regular oil change intervals and never let the oil go low. Never had any issues before but on this last interval I noticed this unnerving tapping or knocking noise which seems to be coming from the upper end of the engine.
Engine Knocking or Ticking?!? This Could Be Your "FIX" Ford/Mazda/Bmw/Honda/Toyota
As the vehicle company's try to make a better fuel economy they add parts

2008 Scion XB Oil Consumption
Here is my 2008 Scion XB currently with 58,151 miles on the odometer. Get
my oil changed at the local toyota dealership regularly. Was driving
yesterday and my oil light came on. Checked the oil and as you can see, the
dip stick is bone dry. My oil change was due at 58,298, so i wasnt even due
for an oil change just yet. There is a service bulletin that came out in
2011 for this particular engine. The warranty is 5year/60k miles.

Replacing a Serpentine Belt - EricTheCarGuy
I've had more than one request for this, the other day I had one come in
and was happy to make the video for it. This is a fairly easy one compared
to some that I have had to deal with, just work smart and have the right
tools and you will be fine. Remember the longer the tool the better the
leverage and that you should check to make sure you have the correct belt
before you try and install it.
