What happened to Toyota?
By Jeri F. on


2005 Toyota Matrix Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


I ordered my Toyota Matrix with a 5speed manual trans. I have always driven manual and wanted to continue. My car is 4 years old and I'm installing a new clutch! My last Toyota Corolla was 15 years old and no clutch. I also had to replace the tires at about 15K miles. I had a little Chevy S10 p/u with manual trans and it was great except I wanted more interior. It was 5 years and I didn't have to replace anything. What has happened to Toyotas? I'm so disappointed.

Best Features

hauling room - plastic back

Worst Features

Spend the money to build the cars like Toyota used to do. I sure paid for a quality car.
