Toyota Matrix Lemon Odds and Nada Odds

Other sources of Toyota Matrix reliability information provide only averages, which can conceal as much as they reveal. So we also report the percentage of Toyota Matrixs with no repairs at all in the past year and the percentage of Toyota Matrixs that are lemons (required three or more repair trips in the past year). These figures might surprise you.

These stats are promptly updated four times a year, to closely track Toyota Matrix lemon odds as the cars age. Others can be over a year behind. Only TrueDelta tells you how reliable the Toyota Matrix has been recently.

toyota has a famous quality reputation. personally, we were disappointed with our first toyota. see full Toyota Matrix review
2006 4dr Hatch 118-horsepower 1.8L I4
4-speed automatic AWD
First - irregardless of the negative press our country have been throwing at Toyota, this manufacturer have proven themselves to be #1 in dependability and lowest CPM year after year after year. IMHO the negative is shamefully 100% BS in an effort to swing US buyers away from the so much better and time proven Asian imports. 2) Ease of entry and exit, spacious rear seating, driving fun and the performance is more than adequate, AWD is perfect for our Pacific NW winter driving, hatchback is so convenient for our needs, fold down rear seats another HUGE PLUS!, attractive styling, we're not selling but the resale is and will be excellent. see full Toyota Matrix review
