When the clutch was pushed in, the noise would stop. Drove until I feared mechanical failure. I shouldn't have had to detect the problem, as car was in shop for this problem earlier. I could be wrong, but how else would you check it if not by pressure. Matrix is targeted at younger buyers who want a vehicle with a sporty image and high functionality. My car has close to 70,000 miles on it now, but as I stated previously, it happened at around 20,000 miles the first time, which is unusual for a Toyota, or any car for that matter.
Now it has 112k and its 2017. Otherwise, runs great, gets 28-31 mpg. The vehicle came to a complete when entering a ditch. The rear seats fold all the way down. I immediately put the car in neutral and the rpms returned to normal. Go to how does it work section, it will give you more insights on it.
Smog technicians wouldn't take liability to run engine for smog tests to register for the coming year, so is now registered as planned non-operation until I can get the car fixed. There is a difference between the pressure and actual freon. Problems not fixed, but I'm tired of taking the car in, and it is okay to drive. Would eventually start after 2 to 3 turns of the key. The contact crashed into another vehicle. Mechanic has seen car 3 times, can't find anything wrong.
It turned out the water pump, serpentine belt, and thermostat had to be replaced. I love the clearance from the ground and not having to sit way down when getting in. The contact sustained injuries to the left leg and left hand, which required medical attention. Eventually there was a slight burning rubber smell. Big stuff has been replaced. Nuisance problem, not a genuine mechanical one.
Car idles rough, motor mounts. Belt tension was then loose. Car temp thermostat began to climb to H. A car almost hit me which would of cost my life. System evap leak was detected. The driver sustained multiple bruises, a fractured rib, and pacemaker replacement that required medical attention.
It will explain some more on the system. Got this repaired by the dealership and within a year the transmission went out again. I saw heat shield over catalytic converter was loose, banging on cat. The 10 amp fuse under the dash is not blown. The failure mileage was 70,000. The Matrixs backseat space beats the Corollas, and headroom is better than the low roofline suggests. It isn't exactly like there is a freon dipstick.
Brought back vehicle for warranty repair. I have taken the car out of service, although it is tight, runs good, and looks good; I would not hesitate to set drive the car from Texas to Washington to Maine and back. Turned out the A-pillar had not been welded properly at the factory. Going back to shop in January. Cargo volume with the seats folded down totals 53.
High headroom and flexible seating positions are among the Matrixs most notable attributes. The contact shifted into neutral gear and then; the vehicle began to operate normally. Then it started to work again. The contact suffered torn ligaments to the left leg. Pontiac has a related Vibe model. Described as a crossover utility vehicle, the Japanese automaker says the Matrix combines the functionality of a sport utility vehicle with the image and performance of a sports car, yet its as affordable as a subcompact sedan. You can have pressure without much freon.
I am not a complete noob so here is what all I know. At the time of the accident my sister was driving, and I was the passenger. Needed to be shimmed and fastened. We are now contemplating putting a tow hitch on it, to tow our aluminum boat. The number one most common problem is related to the vehicle's air bags with 56 problems.
I also explained this to my insurance company. The fold down seats allows you to fit so much, people would look at me funny and stopped to see if my Matrix would actually fit all the stuff I used to haul away. I wish Toyota had not stopped making it as I would buy another one in a heartbeat. The vehicle sustained extensive damage to the driver side view mirror and front driver side door requiring replacement. Call the dealer to get it repair.
