2007 Toyota Matrix 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Our 07 Matrix is reliable.
We needed that, since I work so far from home and can't be of much help if mom gets stuck and needs help.
BUT, the amount of maintenance needed and the intervals of those appointments puts a strain on my alloted amount of days off!!
Every month or so I "need" a preventive maintenance appointment.
Don't the designers of these vehicles realize our lives don't revolve around the vehicles like theirs do?
Expensive P.M.'s also!
Never will buy again.
Back to Chevy!
Also, maybe you can check into the morals of your dealers!
Lost me and more than a few others too.

Best Features

Front wheel drive. Reliable.

Worst Features

Improve the cheap body. Lean on the thing and you get a crack in the fender.

Trying to figure out this review. It starts off with it being a reliable vehicle, but it quickly devolves into a harangue about how tortuous the maintenance is and dealers that have no morals. All the starts are high ratings, but it seems the complaints outweigh the positive, so which is it?
