Toyota Matrix Reliability and Durability: Pros

good reputation
2009 4dr Hatch 158-horsepower 2.4L I4

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 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
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

Excellent reviews, have not had any problems so far.
2004 4dr Hatch 130-horsepower 1.8L I4

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

I have not had to put money into repairs!

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.

2010 4dr Sedan 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
5-speed manual FWD
I am a stickler on maintenance and was very disappointed on the driver side drive shaft seal leaking twice! I was not given any reason why this would happened but so far since the last repair it seems all is fine. I change my own oil and was able to notice the problem way before it was serious as I notice an oozing of manual transmission oil around this drive shaft. I have not been able to find this is a common problem though.
2010 4dr Sedan 106-horsepower 1.5L I4

Its a Toyota, simple as that. They are built to last.
2009 2dr Hatch 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
5-speed manual FWD
I have not had a single problem with the car in the first seven months of ownership. Put gas in, change the oil and it just goes.
2008 2dr Hatch 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
Other than a few minor warranty problems the car is solid.
2008 4dr Sedan 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
It has a good reputation. I have known many Toyotas to have well over 250,000 miles on them without so much as minor maintenance and a few small repairs.
2008 2dr Hatch 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
Have owned this car for almost three years. NO need to go to the shop at all (oil changes and other routine maintenance has been done at home).
2008 4dr Sedan 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
I have had 3 Toyotas now and all have been trouble free for over 150,000km.
2008 2dr Hatch 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
5-speed manual FWD
Know others who own Toyotas and all are very happy.
2007 4dr Sedan 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
5-speed manual FWD
No problems whatsoever, although its only been 14 months and 10,000 miles so far. Seems solid and well made, for a car in this class.
2007 4dr Sedan 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
5-speed manual FWD
No experiences with mechanical defects, just repairs from normal wear and tear, and even those are rare.
