2006 Toyota Matrix Problems

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

Oxygen sensor failure may occur, resulting in the illumination of the Check Engine Light.

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

The Check Engine Light may illuminate due to an evaporative emission (EVAP) system fault. Our technicians tell us these EVAP system faults can be difficult to diagnose but it is not uncommon to find a failed charcoal canister or a loose or worn gas cap.

Miscellaneous -- Verified

The bolts attaching the front door window glass to the window regulator may come loose. This can cause the window regulator to become damaged and possibly causing the window glass to break. Some 2003 & 2004 models have been recalled for the issue.
