2004 Toyota Matrix XR Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
Finally got rid of the 2001 VW Golf
1.8T. Loved that car first 24 months,
while the warrany lasted. Many
problems after that, and strange
enough, they started happening after I
owned the vehicle for 25 months
(warranty on 01 was 24 months).
Got a good deal on Matrix XR in
Melbourne, FL (go for the invoice,
nothing else since these cars are not
top sellers). So far, I enjoy it very
much especially since I don't care
about the fast acceleration and fast
machine (see my performance rating).
If you plan to race, do not buy this
Comfort, quiet, good gas mileage, room,
trunk, flat fold seats, interior
lighting, the stereo (ugraded one) is
good, one of the best out there from
Although I don't care about the pick-up
any more, Toyota should work on that a
little bit. More standard equipment --
basic model comes bare -- wheels and
seats... Maybe available leather seats.
