2004 Toyota Matrix XR Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
I love my car! We got a great deal on
it, too. It's so much fun to drive,
and I love the fact that it's got a
Corolla engine (dependable!). Yay I've
been averaging gas mileage, and even
though we've had it since
Thanksgiving, the car has only been
filled up 4 times! It averages about
32 MPG, and I do lots of city driving.
I imagine the gas mileage would
improve even more if I babied it on
the road. I've been seeing more of
them on the road. Gotta be that
sporty style paired with the
incredible sticker price!
The sporty design paired with
incredible functionality. Very
roomy. Doesn't look like a "family"
car even though ours is. Love the fold
down seats. Fits my 2 large dogs &
they've got lots of room left over!
The ride is a tad bumpy. It would be
nice if it could be smoothed a bit
