The Toyota (NYSE:TM) Matrix debuted in 2003 as a hatchback variation of the Corolla. The car, like its compact role model, gets decent gas mileage of 26 MPG in the city and 32 MPG on the highway. It also received very good reviews from Consumer Reports for reliability, owner costs and depreciation. Nevertheless, sales of the vehicle have been terrible. Toyota sold 49,400 units of the hatchback in 2008, 14,470 units in 2010 and less than 14,000 in 2011. The car averaged 97 days on the lot in 2011.
