2004 Toyota Matrix XR Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
I just turn in my leased Matrix, and it has been a great small car for me at the time when I lease it. It has a lot of room when the back seat and the front Pass. seat are all folded down to help me move. Great little city car. It was avg. for gas 33MPG traveling to and from work. Only one thing happened, the front right shock was bad when the car was first new and that was quickly replaced for free. No other trouble with the car. I just follow the book when to do all the services.
The Great 33MPG! With an Automatic Trans! All the fold down seats. Easy on the wallet to drive!
A bit more power in the engine. But with more power, less MPG. It is a give and take.
