2004 Toyota Matrix XR Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
I wanted a Matrix the first time I opened the
hatchback and realized that the flat folding
back seats would easily fit two bikes inside.
And the high gas mileage. For a seemingly
small car, it is so very roomy, for the driver
and front and backseat passengers...and
I've had some bigger than average folks
enjoying the ride. It's zippy, it get great gas
mileage, it has a unique exterior style. I got
the 'cosmic blue' color and I love it.
The tilting moon roof provides lots of air
circulation, the 6-CD changer is fuss free,
and of course the ease with which the back
seats fold down is fantastic for hauling
anything. Gas mileage is better than
The front bumper could be raised up a bit
and better visibility out the rear and rear side
