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.

CarComplaints.com 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

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

I own a 2010 Toyota Matrix. The driver's seat belt buckle does not function properly, and often doesn't allow the locking/closing of the buckle and belt. That is, the buckle doesn't allow for safe, complete use. I contacted the local Toyota dealership in ventura approx. 2 weeks ago, and the Toyota of America corporation on Sept. 12, 2014, but both refuse to replace the broken buckle for free because they say it's not a recall item. I think this should be recall item because it poses a safety hazard. Please make this a safety recall item as it poses a risk of injury or death, and please assist me in getting it replaced and fixed without my incurring a fee. Thank you.
