Reliability and Durability of the Toyota Matrix: 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

Proven toyota reliability.
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.
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.
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
2005 4dr Hatch 123-horsepower 1.8L I4
4-speed automatic AWD
We have had uniformly good experience with Toyotas.
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.
