2004 Toyota Matrix XR AWD 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
We purchased our 2003 Matrix last May.
It is a lot of fun to drive and handles
like a dream. So far we have only one
complaint. When it is sunny, you cannot
see the odometer with sunglasses on.
The head and leg room are great. We
have taken it on our first real family
vacation last summer and look forward
to another great vacation this summer.
Thank you, Toyota for bringing back
We really like the hatch window. It
really comes in handy for us. We also
like the split seat. We have one child
and we can haul things and still have a
place for him to sit. One other feature
that we like is the way the vehicle
heats up so quickly in the winter.
As mentioned before, the digital
odometer is very difficult to read when
it is sunny. We have found that we have
to take our sunglasses off and lean in
to read it. We also do not like the
fact that you do not have a choice as
to whether the lights are on or not.
