2003 Toyota Matrix Wagon XRS Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 6M)


Review

Overall the XRS is outstanding for its price range. Handling is superb. Power isn't there till about 6000rpm+, but so what. It makes for excellent fuel economy most of the time, and more than enough power when you need it. Tonnes of room inside. The XRS has superb braking, comparable and often better than much more expensive sports coupes.


Best Features

Peppy engine, strong brakes, good fuel economy, very roomy, excellent cornering/handling, reasonable price.


Worst Features

Someone (deaf?) decided that the car must make very loud and annoying beeping sounds whenever it is in reverse. This is a hazard, as it encourages one to drive extra fast in reverse, or crank up the stereo, to keep from going insane.

2003 Toyota Matrix Wagon XRS Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I've owned this vehicle for 10 months now with NO problems at all. This has been my experience with Toyota vehicles since 1992. The domestic big 3 lost me as a customer because of quality and reliability problems. The model owned is an XR 4wheel drive. This car didn't let me down even with the blizzard of 03 in the Northeast! It's very easy to enter and exit with the high doors provided. For people with back trouble it's a blessing.


Best Features

Very versatile design. Can handle 10 foot 2x4's with no trouble. Four wheel drive is excellent on snow and ice.


Worst Features

None at this time

2003 Toyota Matrix Wagon XR Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Perfect for a small size family. We are very please with the way it handles. What we paid for it was very reasonable, it came fully loaded. People complain about red lights, I find them very atractive and easy to read.


Best Features

Interior design. Stick location(works as a joystick). Room. Economy.


Worst Features

Better materials.
