problem #1

Matrix 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 10,000 miles


Bought new Toyota Matrix 2 wheel drive in 2006. All four tires are worn excessively on the inside part of tire. Dealership says I drove the car therefore not their problem. Toyota says tires not their problem. Neither organization seems to think the car may have a manufacturing defect. After searching the internet I have found others reporting same troubles. I know am faced with buying 4 new tires having to get an alignment. And still not convinced the problem will go away. The problem may have been their when I bought the car. Both dealership and Toyota want to blame me and the tire company.
