2005 Toyota Matrix XR Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
I have been completely satisfied with my Matrix after 1 year of ownership. It has been completely reliable and gas mileage as good as advertised at 33-36 MPG. It won't win any races for speed, but I knew that when I bought it.
Side airbags and head curtain airbags. Lots of room. Good mileage. Reliability.
Needs a luggage rack. More interior color choice (black and gray are only choices).
