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

Review

Very fun car to drive, tons of room, lots of great features not found on comparable cars: the hatch glass opens independently of hatch, wall type outlet, auto sensing lights, passenger seat folds flat, etc. Great mpg, I commute 120 miles a day, all highway, I average 33 mpg at 70 mph. Acceleration stinks but this is not a sports car, it's a wagon. Like a car, it is not perfect - I currently have 130,000 miles, cat converter went bad at 120K, locks are starting to fail - they do not respond to keychain. AC condensation hose came loose under dash and passenger side carpet got soaked (everyone thought it was the sunroof but it wasn't). But still an awesome car.

Favorite Features

Auto lights, open hatch glass, 120v outlet, pass. seat folds flat, stereo, looks.

Suggested Improvements

Cat converter, door locks. engine sounds cheap and pingy.
