Vehicle
2004 Toyota Matrix XR Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
Review
Overall an excellent vehicle. I upgraded from a 1987 Accord hatchback and this was the best match in terms of price, mileage, and utility (it is basically a larger, 4 door version of my previous car). In picking up my Matrix XR, however, I noticed the fog lamps didn't work - hence my build quality rating - it was easily fixed (need a fuse put in), but should not have been overlooked by Toyota (especially since they delayed my getting this car for a QC check). Also, try not to buy the "teflon coating" for the paint, just wash and wax it yourself. I will give an update in a couple months.
Favorite Features
Good power (in manual) for the mileage. Lots of space on the inside. Looks b*tch'in.
Suggested Improvements
ABS standard on all vehicles or at least available in more package combinations! Also better QC by Toyota - see above.
