2005 Toyota Matrix XR Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 4A)

Review

I like the car but was terribly disappointed with the gas mileage, I only get 26 mpg around town and very little more on the Hwy. I have a 1984 Mazda GLC that gets better mileage around town. Also I hit the edge of a patch of black top which had been removed to replace (approx 2") and the car jumped all over the road. Scary! I had hoped to save a lot more on gas and to feel pretty safe, for a small car--I don't. I make many trips to No. California and am back to driving my 4- Runner as the 4 miles a gallon I save is not worth the loss of space and security. And kill the seatbelt warning which goes off every time I have my small dog in the car or a briefcase. well, I wish I had something else

Favorite Features

Good size, easy to see all areas outside, carries an excellent amount of stuff for it's size, the back seats go down flat easily, it's comfortable.

Suggested Improvements

Shut off the seatbelt noise!! stability on unforeseen bumps etc.? the lights to show drive reverse etc do not come on when it is dark until after you are moving?
