Matrix uses a timing chain, not a belt, so Toyota eliminated that costly service on this model. You can go to Toyota.com and look up the service recommendactions for all their models (I think it goes back to 03).

From what I've read here, it looks as though this vehicle has a timing chain vs. a belt. does this mean that since I'm at 107K miles I don't need to worry about changing it? Thanks... BIGGSEAL OUT!

If you change your oil regularly the chain itself will in theory last the life of the engine.
In reality the sprockets and chain tensioner typically get noisy ~200-300K miles.
