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.

2010 Toyota Matrix Owner Comments

problem #1

  • 1 miles


The contact owns a 2010 Toyota Matrix. The contact stated that the molding around the driver's side door frame slowly became detached from the vehicle, leaving the jagged metal clips exposed. The vehicle was taking to the dealer twice for the molding to be re attached however, the failure continued to recur. The contact was informed by the dealer that he needed to adjust how he entered the vehicle and that the only thing that could be done was to just re-attach the molding whenever it came undone. The vehicle had not been repaired. The failure mileage was 1 and the current mileage was 12,050.
