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

Review

Having recently moved from Manhattan, where I spent my entire adult life, I was completely overwhelmed about the car choices before me. I researched virtually every model of every make of every 2005 car. What did I end up choosing? The Toyota Matrix. First off, I loved the styling. It's got a very Eurosmart kind of feel to it. Secondly, although the 4WD does not get the kind of mileage that the FWD manual does, it is still efficient. Thirdly, I can pack virtually anything into Trixie. Not only that but the multiple folding seat options, various cargo nets and tie-downs rock. The 4WD worked beautifully on those snowy days, yet she's petite enough to park on tiny NYC streets.

Favorite Features

4WD, moonroof, styling

Suggested Improvements

More power, less plastic. Do away with the red nighttime gauges. I'm driving, not taking a mission to Mars.
