2004 Toyota Matrix XR Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
Review
Very good utilitarian little car. Plenty of room to haul things, lots of cool features like the outlet on the dashboard, the plastic in the cargo area, etc. Good on gas and as it's a Toyota I expect it to be very reliable. But I was slightly disappointed in how it handles (is a bit mushy when cornering) and it is slightly underpowered and could use more "snap". Overall I'm happy with it, but if they could've made the engine and suspension perform like my old Acura Integra (sold at 12 years old to get this one) but ketp the amount of room of the Matrix I'd be in 7th heaven.
Favorite Features
Very roomy and comfortable, even for back-seat passengers. Good on gas, easy to drive.
Suggested Improvements
Stiffen the suspension, give the engine more torque and a bit more horsepower, lower the seats, and make it feel less like a tiny minivan.
