Toyota Matrix Reliability and Durability: Pros

Proven toyota reliability.
2009 4dr Hatch 132-horsepower 1.8L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
good reputation

This catagory is the #1 reason we looked at Toyota when we were new car shopping in 2006. Dependability and Resale. As I mentioned earlier, we're at 82,000 miles and have kept on top of the manufacturer suggested regular maintenance - oil/filters changes, transmission/transfer case fluids changes, coolant and refrigerant changes, brakes at 45,000miles, etc. We have had 100% dependability with this little rascal and it has NOT failed to start and give us a ride,,,, ever. The Toyota Matrix delivers what we had hoped and what we expected it would.

I have had no issues with the Matrix. Never had to bring for repairs on anything, just oil and filter changes.
2005 4dr Hatch 130-horsepower 1.8L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
so far no real mechanical issues. There was a hard start issue which Toyota/dealership eventually admitted and corrected after many attempts and denial that this problem existed
