Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety. Notes: The Toyota Matrix is the mechanical twin of the Pontiac Vibe.

Both models were a joint GM-Toyota venture, manufactured together at a NUMMI production facility in Fremont, CA. Only the heating & A/C systems are different.

odometer not working properly

The good folks at Toyota corporate feel "No obligation" to assist in any way(ie: reduced cost of a new odometer) which was estimated this morning at more than $700 total cost. For an issue they (Toyota) programmed into their vehicle. The trip odometers are clicking just fine, and if you plug the EMC into a computer the mileage is being recorded, just not that the main odometer is doing anything with it.
