2009 Toyota Matrix 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


I had a Sienna before this Matrix. The Sienna was the best vehicle I ever owned. I can't say the same for the Matrix. The first 6,000 miles were great, no problems. Then it got cold and the noises started. There was an air leak on the driver's window, the dash made noises, and it sounded like the windshield is going to fall out. Finally, the strut on the hatch failed. The dealer could not fix anything and they even made the problems worse. Toyota said they could not make the dealer fix the car, so now I have to make a several hour trip to get the car fixed somewhere else. I wish I would have bought a Honda!

Best Features

Hatchback. It is a roomy car for being so small.

Worst Features

Spend more time on fit and finish. Reduce road noise with more insulation. Seat fabric should be factory treated so that rain water doesn't stain the seats.
