2004 Toyota Matrix Wagon XR Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I love my Matrix! This was my first
car purchase, and unfortunatley I dealt
with a "cheating, deceiving and lying"
salesman. What I thought I was
purchasing was a 6-cyclinder Matrix
with all wheel drive. Instead, what I
found I had purchased was the basic
Matrix XR at the Matrix XRS with added
features price! What a rat!


Best Features

Out of this world stero system. Alloy wheels. Futuristic body design. Very roomy interior. Great on gas and mileage.


Worst Features

Needs more horsepower. Has a tendency to stall when starting off.

2004 Toyota Matrix Wagon XR Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

THis car hadles very nicely and gets
great mileage. The front wheel drive
is great for city driving and ok on
flat snow terrain. However, it has very
poor traction on ice and snow so
traction devicds are a must. With the
larger wheels, even the smallest/
tightest cable chains hit the wheel
wells.
THe interior is comfortable and
appealing. The angle of the steering
wheel is not ergonomicaly correct for a
person 5'4". Visibility and seat
comfort is great.
Interior polycarbonate material
scratches easily.
My radiant red car gets lots of looks
and copliments especially from the
younger crowd.


Best Features

gas mileage, hatch back, keyless entry, radiant red color


Worst Features

Better steering wheel angle Higher grade plastic paneling on interior that resists scratching Option for all weather traction tires larger wheels and sunroof option together

Review

From the moment I saw it I wanted it. I
haven't been disappointed yet. Lots of
fun to drive and handles well. Not much
of anything bad to say except it could
be a bit more sound proof. Outside
noise when driving on the highway isn't
very good. Noise reduction hopefully in
2005 will improve.

Review

Great car, pick-up is four cylider style, a little
weak. But I love the car. Doors are a little
hard to close, and sunroof sticks a little.
but doesn't matter in the long run.


Best Features

moonroof, and window hatch. shiney gauges, and 6 disk in dash changer. the plug on the dash.


Worst Features

make both seats be able to fold down for sleeping, and back seats be able to recline a bit.

Review

I'm on the road alot. I was driving a
Dodge Ram 1500 4wd lifted w/36'
tires.That got 12 gallons to the mile.
I needed something economical but with
flare and style. There is no way I was
going to drive something wqithout
style. the Matrix is perfiect 4 me, its
has style, great sound system and 43
mph.I bought the 5 speed 4 fun and it
is.


Best Features

Great stereo! i love the style of the XR with the air dam. I love the rear hatch back, way cooool. Its comfortable and the gauge cluster is fun.


Worst Features

All new cars should come with floor mats. Thats it!
