Hi Scotty,

It’s been a while I am NOT getting answers to my questions. Hope all is good.

For now, i am looking for a Toyota Matrix manual transmission car and I need to know which year range would you recommend.

Also do you recommend 5 speed or 6 speed.

Finally what specifically (not generally) should I be checking in these cars when I go out to check.

Will look forward to hear back. Thanks.

Final two questions for now please @Jackofall

  1. If I decide to go for “Automatic transmission” (either matrix or Vibe), I hope that would also be ok, correct?

  2. I see that you have mentioned years 2008-2009 only. Should I stick only to this range or can it be any year, so that the search can be easier?

Thanks a lot for replying. Do you think Pontiac Vibe will be same in “Reliability” as Toyota Matrix would be? @Jackofall

They are just corola with different body. 5 speed, under 140k miles is best with history from a private owner, pontiac vibe is same car. Cheaper. Check front end cv..joints for wear and boots not split grease leaks out.
