Durant Toyota Weatherford, Texas Complaint - 2008 Toyota Matrix

Review by judyard1 on 2011-07-26
I bought my Matrix new in 2008, now with less than 100,000 miles on it I have an emissions leak that I now have been told since I did not purchase a extended warranty is not covered. Never thought I would need it before the 100,000 mile mark. I am a widow on a fixed income which makes it hard for me to pay what it costs for finding and repairing this problem.

Seriously checking on Honda that has 10 year warranty on there cars. They must think their cars are a lot better.

Take you car to several repair shops in your area and get estimates. Then go with the one you like best. Is there someone who can give you a recommendation of someone they trust?

Are you close to 100,000 miles? If so, you are putting over 30,000 miles a year on it. That is close to $4000 just for gas. Plug in depreciation and tires and insurance, and you're paying a heck of a lot for this car.

I'd shop around for the best rate on the repair, if the car has been good otherwise. It won't add a lot to the expenses you already have.

Has someone actually fully diagnosed the problem for you (meaning more than just pulled the code)? An emissions leak could be something as easy/cheap as a faulty gas cap.
