Toyota Quality?

Vehicle
2005 Toyota Matrix XR Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
Review
Issues: 1)Noisey front end. Dealer says it's the tires (Continentals) and won't do anything about it. 2)Needed a serpentine belt at 12,500 miles. Why? 3)You have to sit on the passenger seat to move it. 4)Auto locks will automatically relock 30 seconds after you hit the button. 5)Driver side window broke at 11,000. Took the dealer 2 trys to fix it. 6)Auto Transmission is "iffy" coming down hills. 7)Rear windshield wiper is noisey even if it's new. (And a new one costs 20 bucks) 8)Spoilers are too low to the ground. Every matrix XR I have seen in parking lots have theirs broked right in front of rear wheels (they bottom out over speed bumps.)
Favorite Features
Gas mileage is great. Looks Cool. The color of mine is Great (Gray Pearl) Dark enough to be neat, but not too dark to show dirt. Tight turning raius. For a small car it's back seat is big. Fits rear facing car seat well.
Suggested Improvements
-Better tires, or higher quality control in suspension manufacture. Seems very tinny. -closer attention to quality...see issues. Toyota is suppose to be the best and it seems to be lacking in this model.
