2006 Toyota Matrix XR 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 4A)

Review

Bought the car new and am a very careful owner. My last car, a Chevy housed outside in the elements, was 12 years old when I traded it in with very little problems. After 2 years, the fuel pump went. After 2 1/2 years, electrical system and sensors failed. Just after the warranty expired, multiple systems failed, requiring a new battery and $400 worth of repairs. I have to drive long distances for my new job and have to trade it because I don't know when or where it will fail next. Disappointing, considering Toyota's supposed quality.

Favorite Features

Great gas mileage. Fairly comfortable.

Suggested Improvements

Better quality assurance. The vehicle is rated well by others, but bad ones get out there.
