Link?

The 7th gen uses an analog cluster, and I've seen examples pass that milestone without a problem.

Dunno about the 8th gen though.

A: Mohamed Bouchama, executive director of Car Help Canada (www.carhelpcanada.com; 416-651-0555), a non-profit consumer advocacy group, replies:

Toyota should be responsible for the total cost of the repairs.

It should "do the right thing by consumers" and recall every vehicle that has this problem due to their factory defective part.

Consumers who consider buying these vehicles as used must perform their due diligence to avoid problems.
I love watching this guy on TV, I agree with him on this one too. I mean all you Toronto area people who watch his shows on CP24 will agree that he knows a lot about cars and they're reliability, he often backs most japanese brands and a few domestic models when people call in wondering what to buy based on reliability, etc.

At the moment Toyota reliability has slumped a lot! they seem to be riding on their previous reputation.

Toyota is really getting crappier everyday. My Corolla will definitely be my last Toyota.
Ford and Hondas are actually getting better.

Ford and Toyota are still worlds apart... Ever seen all the wires disconnect in a steering column because they did not have enough slack for the tilt? Ford has.

I have a spare 98 VE speedo that I fubared the EEPROM on. I'll figure out how to give it the right speedo signal and try to pump it up there and see what happens.

Toyota needs to step up and make this a recall if it's going to happen on all of thier cars.

They wont make it a recall because the its not a safety issue and would cost more to recall them than to pay off any lawsuit or listen to ppl bitch about it. Stupid Profits

Canada 06 Matrix XR has now 299,999 km's

Guess what???? The Odometer does stop at 299,999!! Are you kidding me???? The local dealers and Toyota Canada are working on this earth shattering situation. I will let you know how it turns out.

The car is almost broken in. Oil level does not move between oil changes. A rock hit the front edge of the Drivers side rear quarter window and shattered it. I bought a new piece of glass from Toyota and glued it in. Saved $150.00 on the insurance deductible.

It's still a new car to me.

This has been known for some time. It's sickening, IMO.
