2003 Toyota Matrix XR Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
We've owned the matrix for 5 years now and it has over 100,000 miles. Only routine maintenance. Bought for the interior flexibility since we have 2 dogs. We bought ours used but would have preferred the V6 for a little more pep. We have had a very good experience and plan to drive this car for another 100,000 miles.
Interior cargo space for a small car. Gas mileage (avg 28-30 mixed). Cheap car to maintain.
Low profile tires make it difficult to drive in snow/ice. Interior noise is louder than many vehicles.
