Hi Scotty, I know you really like the Toyota matrix and i have been thinking about getting a older one from a Rust Free state, but I keep seeing them for sale cheap and the ad says "heater doesn't work" or "needs heater core" What is going on with these cars?

That really doesn't address the question since there are not many corollas or camrys advertised that have this problem and there should be actually more of them since there were so many more sold than the matrix. So blaming the matrix owners for lax maintenance is not the answer when the percentages of lazy owners should be about the same between models.

Nothing WRONG w/ Toyota! Negligent owners most likely NEVER changed coolant, or never properly upgraded to OEM Toyota HOAT coolant-- clogging up heater hoses or Heater Core. Majority of "problems" w/ Toyota isn't manufacturer error, but Operator error!
