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

I have a 2007 Matrix. The drivers seat keeps lowering on its own. I crank it up 8 cranks. After 2 days of driving, it lowers 2 cranks. If I let it go, it will lower all the way down. The dealer replaced the seat lifter but that didn't help. The seat is lowering because the crank(lever) that raises and lowers the seat rubs against the seat cushion. After a short while (1 or 2 days of driving) it lowers because my weight on the cushion pushes the crank(lever) down. I am 195lbs. The dealer said there is nothing they can do. I have to place a wooden dowel under the crank(lever) to keep it from lowering.
