The co-op is in the process of acquiring three brand-new 2012 Toyota Matrix vehicles for the fleet. The first two are already in service – a red one stationed at Sun Life (Park & Union), and a white one stationed at King & Cameron. The third one will be blue, and will be introduced to the fleet soon!
The three new Matrix vehicles are replacing the three oldest vehicles in the fleet – the 2002 Toyota Echo, the 2003 Suzuki Aerio, and the 2003 Toyota Corolla. Once these vehicles are sold, the entire fleet will have air conditioning and power locks, two creature comforts that were missing from the co-op’s three oldest cars.
Other great things about the new Toyota Matrix vehicles – they all have cruise control, and auxiliary audio jack inputs, bringing the total number of cars in the fleet with these extra amenities to five each (four of which have both).
The addition of these new cars is a great step forward in improving the age and quality of the co-op’s fleet, and we hope all members enjoy driving the new cars!
