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.

2007 Toyota Matrix Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 022008


  • miles


Initially the car would fail to accelerate when the gas pedal was pressed down. Even when the gas pedal was pressed down completely the car only went 5 miles per hour. This happened on several occassions. When the car was taken to the dealer the whole "panel board" was replaced. The car was still under warranty and the repair was paid for by Toyota. Then on 2/2/08 the car accelerated on its own, only stopping when it hit a chain link fence. An insurance claim and police report were filed. Additionally the horn was not working and the air bag did not deploy in the accident. The serviceman at the Toyota dealer advised the air bag was defective and Toyota paid for the repair of the airbag. This accident caused my insurance rate to increase. Also the accident negatively impacts my son's driving record as he was the driver.
