Everything I Expected

2005 Toyota Matrix XR Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
Review
I've owned my 2005 Matrix XR 5-speed for 4 months and so far have nothing but good things to say about the car. My Matrix is fun to drive, has very comfortable and supportive seats, lots of passenger room, and gets very good gas mileage. The lowest I have gotten is 31 MPG, and that was on the first tank of gas from the dealership. Since then it has averaged 34 - 36 MPG, depending on how much highway driving is included. I know people who have bought Hybrid vehicles (Civic and Prius) who don't get that much better mileage (40 - 45 MPG) to justify the higher price. My Matrix was under $17K OTD. The car has no squeaks or rattles and feels like it will hold up well for the next 10 years.
Favorite Features
Smooth Ride Comfortable Seats Good Gas Mileage Excellent Value for the Price
Suggested Improvements
More power would be nice, but price would be higher and MPG less.
