2005 Toyota Matrix XR Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
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
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.
Shut off the seatbelt noise!! stability
on unforeseen bumps etc.? the lights to
show drive reverse etc do not come on
