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


I like it, recommend it, would buy another. Matrix is 4-dr, Corolla hatchback . F seating is quite comfortable. Upright position gives good vis 'cept to rear where windows taper. No difficulty finding comfortable seating position (6'0" - leggy). R leg & seat room large for car this size. Long trips quite possible. Cargo volume and features excellent - 2 usable nets, tie-down rings and tie-down straps std. R deck hard ribbed plastic. 60/40 R seats fold flush & match deck. Will hold a stack of 8' 2x4s with hatch closed. The 1.8L, DOHC Corolla engine is nearly perfect - excellent power curve. Surprising acceleration. Five spd manual is excellent.

Best Features

Reliability, cargo capacity, rear seat room in a small car, audio quality, maneuverability, ABS braking performance, engine performance - stops and goes quite nicely.

Worst Features

ABS should be standard on all models. Rearward visibility can be troubling. I would trade disc changer or MP3 capability for all "Program Type" and RDS functions on audio system - useless feature. Needs an audible, confirmation ("honk") for remote lock.
