This car is great for everything! Couldn't ask for a more practical car and fun at the same time.

Fold down seats, and being that it is a 6 speed

Better gas mileage only because California has the highest gas prices around.

Review

First let me say that I have always purchased American made vehicles and was skeptical about buying a Foreign made car. Before buying my Matrix, I used edmunds.com and other sites and did many hours of research. It wasn't until I saw and test drove the Matrix that I realized what I was missing!! When you first sit in this car, it has the feeling of a mini-van. The Matrix handles curves like a dream and is very fun to drive. I paid $16,388.00 for the base model which has an automatic transmission, cruise, A/C, power door,power locks and stereo with C/D player. The floor mats are even good quality and look snazzy with Matrix written at the corners!!!


Favorite Features

Gas Mileage, Size, Body Style, Basic Options, Storage space. There isn't really anything I do not like about this vehicle.


Suggested Improvements

If I could change one thing, it would be the wiper function bar. I find myself looking down to see what funtion it is on and that could be a problem if I am on the interstate. It is not a huge problem and once I get use to it, I'll be fine!

Review

I leased a 2004 Toyota Matrix. I have all the bells and whistles. Moon/sun roof, fog lamps, rear and front under spoilers, luggage rack, which I might add, the Matrix just is not a Matrix without the luggage rack. This car is easy to drive, operate, maintain, and much roomier than I had expected. It is versatile, cute, quick, sporty and gets good gas mileage. I can fit my groceries, and a small stroller in the back. It has an amazingly fast rear and front window defroster, and the air conditioner filter works wonderfully, expecially if you are behind a really stinky automobile. I am pleasantly suprised and have been very happy with my lease.


Favorite Features

I love the moon/sun roof, the self sufficient lights, the "cannot lock your keys in the car" feature, the easy to read radio, the gauges in red, The handlability, fast or slow, the car will not shimmy or shake.


Suggested Improvements

The 5.9 inches of ground clearance, which I keep fully engrained in my head, would really do well with being raised a bit especially if you are one of the fortunate ones to have the really cute front/rear under spoilers surrounding your Matrix.
