#334 of 573 another matix transmission failure
Aug 29, 2009 (4:57 pm)
I have a 2004 mistake Oh I mean Matrix. Transmission number 3 just failed today. I was lucky when my first clutch failed 11,000 miles, and after much discussion they fixed free of charge. After 2 failed I was not going to let Toyota touch it went to private repair shop, They told me I wouldn't have any problem with their clutch. Well one year later here I am again. I am over 50 and have been driving standards for 25 year. I also got the same story- Driver error. It might be driver error but the one error I will never make again is to buy any kind of Toyota. By the way does anyone have hub cap left on car. All Matrix around here loose their hub caps. Well I would rather replace hub cap than Clutches

Hello Mr. Roatsey,
I would like to be involved with this lawsuit. I have a 2003 Matrix with a manual transmission. I am on my third transmission, which has recently died.
I can be contacted at fabjancegmail.com

In April of 2008 my 03 Matrix had just reached the 100K miles (101k to be more exact) when the manual transmission went... no prior warnings much like your description.
We had it replaced and spent upwards of $2,000.
It's been fine since but it was, as for you, a HUGE disappointment coming from a Toyota....! plus, the risk involved on it failing while driving....
Count me in as yet another outraged buyer interested in building a case.
Did you get your $$$ back?

After being told 112K miles that the heat shields were lose but there was nothing wrong with the tranny, having been the victim of a hit and run while waiting for the tow truck when the transmission quit on the interstate and being REALLY ticked spending over $3,100 to replace the transmission, I'd be more than happy to get further information on a class-action lawsuit. Please count me in!

As we generally do not permit the solicitation of lawsuit action in the forums, nor do we recommend the posting of email addresses (as noted in the post box - we can't stop anyone from mining it), please use the email address in your profile and make it "public" to other members if you wish to contact each other directly.

Same problem with my 2003 Matrix manual transmission going out at 84,000. They refused to take on any responsibility when I called Torrance. Count me in on class action.
