Do yourself a favor - drive one!

2004 Toyota Matrix XR Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
Review
If you think you want an SUV but you know that you'll spend 99% of your time on paved roads and you only need room for 4 or less passengers, then you owe it to yourself to look at a Matrix. Seats 4 adults comfortably with plenty of leg and headroom. Rear seats and front passenger seat fold completely flat for hauling cargo. Friends who have driven my Matrix comment on 1) the excellent driving position and 2) the ease at which the manual transmission shifts. Look folks, it's simple: at $2+ per gallon of gas these days you'd be fuelish to pass up on an opportunity to save big $ annually at the pump, not to mention the $ you'll save vs. the cost of an SUV.
Favorite Features
Great value for your money! Upright driving position, joystick-like ease of shifting, cargo capacity, excellent crash test scores, FUEL ECONOMY.
Suggested Improvements
Front bumper should be raised an inch or two to avoid scraping on curbs. By the way, I disagree with those who say that the engine is noisy. You can really only hear the engine upon acceleration. If you want quiet, spend another $20K on a Lexus.
