Toyota Matrix Reliability and Durability: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2009 4dr Hatch 132-horsepower 1.8L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
good reputation
2009 4dr Hatch 158-horsepower 2.4L I4
5-speed manual FWD
Proven toyota reliability.
2006 4dr Hatch 118-horsepower 1.8L I4
4-speed automatic AWD
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.
2006 4dr Hatch 126-horsepower 1.8L I4
5-speed manual FWD
I have had no issues with the Matrix. Never had to bring for repairs on anything, just oil and filter changes.
2005 4dr Hatch 123-horsepower 1.8L I4
4-speed automatic AWD
We have had uniformly good experience with Toyotas.
2005 4dr Hatch 130-horsepower 1.8L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
Excellent reviews, have not had any problems so far.
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
2004 4dr Hatch 130-horsepower 1.8L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
Had my Matrix for 5 years 88000 miles, all i did was normal maintenance. never had a problem
2004 4dr Hatch 130-horsepower 1.8L I4
5-speed manual FWD
I have not had to put money into repairs!
2004 4dr Hatch 130-horsepower 1.8L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
Toyotas are known for reliability and durability; this car replaced a 14-year-old Toyota with 180,000 miles (and going strong). I bought this Matrix with 73,000 miles, and expect to get over 200,000 out of it.

2011 4dr Minivan, ext. 266-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Toyota (regardless of people feel) is a company that produces dead reliable cars.
2010 4dr Minivan, ext. 266-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed automatic FWD
Toyota is perceived to produce reliable cars. I'm hoping this one proves right.
2009 4dr Minivan, ext. 266-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed automatic FWD
Toyota stood behind their warranty. They did not just "reset the computer"... they got to (hopefully) root cause. See below on dislikes.
2008 4dr Minivan, ext. 266-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed automatic FWD
Previous and current owners give it high marks
2008 4dr Minivan, ext. 266-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed automatic FWD
no problems
2007 4dr Minivan, ext. 266-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed automatic FWD
Toyota quality is already well known overall and I already own a Toyota as well
2007 4dr Minivan, ext. 266-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed automatic FWD
I considered the Odyssey and Sienna to replace my 00 Chrysler T&C LTD. I had a better selection of Sienna's, and their reliability is reported to be much better than the Honda.
2007 4dr Minivan, ext. 266-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed automatic FWD
Excellent product reviews and manufacturer reputation. 50,000km and no problems thus far.
2007 4dr Minivan, ext. 266-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed automatic FWD
This is the most reliable minivan on the market. I hear the Honda drives just a bit better but it is not as reliable
2007 4dr Minivan, ext. 266-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed automatic FWD
Minimal time in shop, few repairs needed, less down time.

I had major computer (electrical?) issues - all warning lights on console lit up. Details: NHTSA.gov TSB. Multiple trips for repair and 30 days loss of use to remedy. I bought Toyota over Honda due to (TQM) quality methods. I feel somewhat cheated here.
2004 4dr Minivan, ext. 230-horsepower 3.3L V6
5-speed automatic AWD
We have had at least 8 recalls on the car We have replaced the transmission which was faulty from day one Run flat tires are horrible - bad decision
