2004 Toyota Matrix XR AWD 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
I love my Matrix and it is fun to drive. My son who is 19 was really impressed with the way it looks and drives, which surprised me. I didn't think it would be sporty enough for him. Handles great in the snow and rain. Visibility could be better as sometimes it is difficult to see something that is at the front/side of the vehicle when driving. But overall It's great to drive. Reliaiblity is A1.
Love the AWD. A sunroof is a must. Lots of cargo room. Like how it's not as low as a car but not as high a an SUV.
Improve visibility on the drivers side. Can't get mist off the windows when rolling down. Could use a quieter ride in the back. (But who cares, I ride in the front).
