Toyota 5 speed matrix owner--- this car is a great care and i will miss her.This toyota is going on her second transmission at 160k, one trans came with the car the second one came from toyata parts dept new.
Toyota says no know problems with 5/speed they must not look online,or why do they stock so many in the wharehouse if there is no problem.
I can see clutch problems from many driving styles but the trans imploding and the clutch and p plate and throwout bearing are still fine.
Toyota you are on your way to being GM---we
do not know anything about your problem.
The matrix is a great car buy the automatic--
Toyata will not stand behind the 5/speed
Car will go 300k or 3 5/speeds why
The Matrix receives a revised front bumper, taillights and grille to freshen up the exterior, along with a new audio head unit design, optional side curtain airbags and other minor interior changes. Stability control is also newly optional.
