I just bought the car used so I don't know yet how often it occurs, but I noticed it after it had been driven a long distance in the rain. The edges are dry, only the middle is wet.
I just recently bought a 08 Toyota Matrix and haven't had any problems with the car until a few days ago. My instrument panel lights for the A/C and heat, and gear shifter will not turn on. It all works just fine but I just can't see what it is that I am turning on when it is dark out. Thanks in advance!
I'm wondering if this has a timing belt or chain..
