Default toyota matrix

I have semi retired by 95 escort beater and picked up a relatively clean 2004 Toyota matrix. Does anyone know if a active forum where I can get some info . Its just going to be a work ride but I can't resist messing with it a bit. Did a basic tint job and a major detail so far but with 104,000 miles on it sound everywhere else. Thanks for any info you may have in advance.

if you saw the daily driver this is replacing you would see what a HUGE upgrade it is

1995 ford escort I bought in 2000 for $ 2300 with 75,000 miles on it . It now has 168,000 and is on its second used transmission. Its been a great car transportation wise but its making some odd noises again and I think its on its last legs. My wife likes driving it because people stay away because it looks like we might not have insurance

Having 4 registered cars plus a decommissioned 1972 blazer for two people and only a two car garage is a bit over kill so when the escort stumbles again its gone. I also have a serious offer on the blazer so that will free up some room as well.


i'll drive anything that lets me save the Mini for special times
