On the other hand, my 2009 Matrix was the biggest turd of a car I've ever driven. Simply look at that car wrong and you're likely to leave a dent and it rattled and creaked right from the get go. It also had ridiculously huge blind spots on both sides due to poor rear window design. It'll be a very long time before I own another toyota, a brand that I had immense respect for based on a mid-80s corolla hatchback (fx16) I put 200K trouble-free miles on. They are all more than capable of making shit cars and they all tend to get complacent about the need to maintain quality. It seems to me that going for the up & coming brands that have just reached maturity as major international brands is the way to go. Toyota and Honda of the 80s and 90s are maybe the Mazda and Hyundai of today
