239K miles 300+ miles to the tank. No major services ever. Runs great though now I will be. Needing a new compressor. Has never left me or my college aged kids stranded. Think a lot of mechanics scare you into repairs due to lack of business. I was told 4 years ago that I had a transmission problem and needed work inside transmission to this day I have not had any problems with my vehicle nor ever has required to have the transmission serviced. Only general maintenance. Proud female Matrix owner. 12 years and still running strong. Hallelujah!!!
8 years and 120,000 km and just had first non-routine repair - front break caliper seized. Mileage is excellent. Haul four big guys and golf clubs with ease. As it passed 100k km engine seemed less peppy than when new. Great car. Hope to see 200+k km.
Original owner, 98k miles. The 5-speed transmission recently required a rebuild. The bearings split and came apart causing 1st and 2nd gear to cease. Regular maintenance and no harsh driving or racing. Most of the miles are commuter miles. The A/C is weak. No mechanical problems otherwise. Repair cost on the transmission was $1250 but included a new clutch (which was used at approx 75%)
