Model News

The XRS trim is not available for 2011, but the base Matrix gets a rear wiper and power locks as standard equipment.


Value Writeup

Despite the slight price increase for the 2011 model year, the Matrix still comes down in the inexpensive end of the crossover and sport wagon segment. The base model with the manual transmission starts at $18,545. Vehicle stability control and traction control are standard even on the base model -- which achieves 26 mpg city and 32 mpg highway with the manual transmission.


Model Highlights

The 2011 Toyota Matrix comes in two trim levels--the base and the S trim. For 2011, the 1.8L 4-cylinder engine is the only one available. It makes 132 horsepower by utilizing VVT-I variable valve timing system to improve engine response and fuel efficiency.

The transmissions available in 2010 carry over for this year as well. The base and S models offer the choice of a 5-speed manual transmission or 4-speed automatic, though the all-wheel drive S is only available with a Super ECT 4-speed auto transmission.

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 efficiency estimates for the Matrix are impressive. The base level trim with the 1.8L engine and 5-speed manual gets 26 mpg city, 32 mpg highway, while the all-wheel drive S gets slightly less at 20 mpg city, 26 mpg highway.

Standard features for the entire line include air conditioning, tilt/telescopic steering wheel, heavy duty rear defogger, color-keyed outside mirrors and front and rear 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.

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.

Rollover Note
Dynamic (moving) test results (Tip or No Tip) and measured rollover-related properties determine vehicle's risk of rollover in single vehicle crash and its rollover rating.
