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

I drive a 2007 Toyota Matrix. While driving down the road, something came loose and a loud rattle/banging was present. I drove to the nearest Toyota dealership and left it there overnight. The gas tank strap was broken thus causing the fuel tank to hang down. The dealership alleges that I must've hit something for this to occur. I am the sole driver of this vehicle and I did not hit anything with this car. Toyota would not cover this repair under warranty. I paid to have the part replaced. The dealership kept the old part.
