Model News

The biggest change for the 2010 Toyota Matrix is the addition of Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) and Traction Control (TRAC) as standard equipment on all trim levels. The price of the 2010 Matrix has increased by about $200. After a major overhaul for 2009, the Matrix enters the 2010 model year with few changes. There are still 3 variants, including the base, the all-wheel drive S, and the sporty XRS.


Value Writeup

Despite the slight price increase for the 2010 model year, the Matrix still comes in on the more inexpensive end of the crossover or sport wagon segment. The base model, with a 1.8-liter engine and 5-speed manual transmission, starts at $16,550, while the XRS with a 2.4-liter engine and 5-speed manual transmission starts at $21,960. VSC and TRAC are standard even on the base model -- which achieves 26 mpg city/32 mpg highway with the manual transmission.


Model Highlights

The 2010 Toyota Matrix comes in 3 trim levels, which are the same as they were in 2009: the base, the S, and the XRS. All 3 come with front-wheel drive standard, but all-wheel drive is an option for the S. For 2010, the 1.8L inline 4-cylinder engine with 132 horsepower is available only on the base model. The 2.4L 4-cylinder with 158 horsepower is standard on the S and XRS models. Both engines still use the VVT-I variable valve timing system to improve engine response and fuel efficiency.

The transmissions available in 2009 carry over for the next year as well. The base and S models offer the choice of a 5-speed manual transmission or 4-speed Electronically Controlled Transmission (ECT) automatic, though the AWD S is only available with a Super ECT four-speed auto transmission. The XRS can be had with either a traditional 5-speed manual or a 5-speed automatic with gear-by-gear up- and downshifting.

In normal conditions, the optional all-wheel drive system in the S trim sends all the power to the front wheels, helping the vehicle behave like a front-wheel drive vehicle until conditions warrant a change. When necessary, it uses active torque control, which receives signals from the anti-lock brakes and distributes power to the wheels that need it most.

Fuel estimates for the 2010 Matrix are impressive. The base level trim with the 1.8L engine and 5-speed manual gets a big 26 city, 32 highway, while the all-wheel drive S gets slightly less at 20 city, 26 highway. Even the sporty XRS with the 5-speed automatic gets a respectable 21 city, 29 highway.

The big change in features for 2010 is the addition of Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) and traction control (TRAC) to the list of standard features for all trim levels of the Matrix, along with electronic brake-force distribution. Other standard features for the entire line include air conditioning, tilt/telescopic steering wheel, heavy duty rear defogger, color-keyed outside mirrors and intermittent wipers. Front, seat-mounted side, and front and rear curtain airbags are standard on all Matrix models, as are seatbelt pretensioners and active headrests.

The S model adds power locks and windows, cruise control, rear wiper, remote keyless entry, a 6-speaker CD sound system with MP3 compatibility, a 115-volt power outlet and a fold-flat front passenger seat. Options for the S trim include 17-inch alloys, tilt-and-slide power moonroof, and a Sport package for the all-wheel drive model that includes front and rear underbody spoilers and fog lamps.

The XRS has standard 18-inch alloys, a front sport strut-tower brace for improved handling, a rear deck spoiler, and audio controls integrated into the steering wheel, as well as Bluetooth hands-free capability.

Summary
Toyota Motor Company (Toyota) is recalling certain model year 2009-2011 Tundra, Sequoia, Corolla, Corolla Matrix and Scion xB, 2008-2011 Highlander and Highlander Hybrid, 2007 Camry and Camry Hybrid, 2009 Camry and Camry Hybrid, 2006-2011 RAV4, 2006-2010 Yaris, and 2009-2010 Scion xD and Pontiac Vibe vehicles. During the manufacturing of the Power Window Master Switch (PWMS), grease lubricant may have been inconsistently applied to the sliding electrical contacts.

Consequence
If the sliding electrical contacts are not protected by lubricant, debris and moisture that get into the switch may cause a short circuit and the switch assembly may overheat and melt, increasing the risk of a fire.

Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the switch, applying a lubricant if no abnormality is found. If abnormality is found, the PWMS circuit board will be replaced, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin December 20, 2015. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-800-331-4331. Toyota's number for this recall is C0M.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Summary
Toyota is recalling certain model year 2006-2008 RAV4, 2006-2010 Yaris, 2008-2010 Highlander, and 2009-2010 Tacoma, Corolla, Corolla Matrix and General Motors Pontiac Vibe vehicles. In the affected vehicles, the steering column assembly contains electrical connections to the driver's airbag module housed in a spiral cable assembly, which includes a Flexible Flat Cable (FFC). Due to the shape and location of the FFC's retainer, the FFC could become damaged when the steering wheel is turned.

Consequence
If the FFC is damaged, connectivity to the driver's air bag module could be lost and the air bag deactivated. The failure of the driver's air bag to deploy in the event of a crash that typically necessitates deployment increases the risk of injury to the driver.

Toyota will notify the Toyota vehicle owners, and General Motors will notify the Pontiac Vibe owners. Toyota will send their owners an interim notification letter in late April 2014 to advise owners of the recall, and will mail owners a second letter when remedy parts are available. General Motors has not yet provided a notification schedule for the Pontiac Vibe owners. When the parts are available, dealers will replace the spiral cable assembly, free of charge. Owners may contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331. Owners may contact General Motors at 1-800-762-2737.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
