2004 Toyota Matrix XR Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
I'm not a car person and didn't really
care so much what I bought as long as
it was big enough, reliable and got
good gas mileage. I went with the
Matrix and the longer I own it and
drive it, the more I love it. The only
thing I don't like about mine is that
it's black. I looks really nice when
just cleaned, but boy, does it look bad
when it's dirty! I'll never buy a black
The dash board is really snazzy. All
the head room is great. The moveable
tie-down tracks in the back have come
in handy. This car has more storage
compartments than my kitchen.
The visibility when backing up is not
very good. You have to get used to
using the side mirrors.
