2006 2.0 XE Manual N/A
... now we know why! :biggrin:
Oh that lol, yeah, my mum has a Toyota Matrix. I called her up and she said that it has been sticky on her gas pedal! She seemed to not take it seriously when I told her it shouldn't wait until her oil change...silly mum.Oh dear. Have you not noticed that they're recalling millions of cars because the accelerator pedal sticks? :icon_eek:
Mercedes got it right when the A class failed the elk test. They withdrew the car, redesigned it and restored their reputation.I say big up to Toyota, at least they have had the balls to come out and tell people that there is a fault and then get them fixed for their customers.
How many other brands out there have either refused to say there is a fault or repeatedly stuck their heads in the sand when a model has a serious fault. Renault Clio springs to mind or how about BMW alloy wheels or Mercedes A-class steering racks!?
I'm glad somebody on this side of the pond had the guts to ask....I was thinking the same thing but was too sheepish to ask.I'm lost. It must be because I'm a silly American...lol.
That they did and look what happened to the price, but there is a flaw with the right hand drive model steering rack. They wear at the joints prematurely which causes them to become loose, clunk and if left cause it to fail. I know people who have had three on cars with less than 50K on them. Ours was on its way out before we got rid of it, 23K at 5 years old. Loads of people have complained, even a petition. MB have done nowt.Mercedes got it right when the A class failed the elk test. They withdrew the car, redesigned it and restored their reputation.
+1, kudos to them for actually doing something about it.Toyota did what they should, recall the cars. I have a lot of respect for toyota, and this would not bug me from buying a car from toyota. But than I hate toyotas car and would rather drive honda but I do respect the company, I think they belong in the #1 car manuf. spot.
