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

Review

This was my first all-wheel-drive vehicle, and today was my first day in the snow. This was an excellent choice for me as it's a solid, reliable car with some panache and good affordability (don't like spending a bundle on cars). Cargo area is surpisingly useful for a compact. Interior is not luxurious but fun and utilitarian. Good cup holders and a cubby just right for a garage door opener is included.

Best Features

The All-Wheel-Drive is a dream come true on my hilly, snowy driveway. I like the driving position--car is higher than a standard compact but lower than an SUV. CD changer is intuitive and works well.

Worst Features

I would like a true remote hatch release--the remote on the car only opens the hatch window a crack, not the door. The keyless entry is no help here either. The panic alarm is emabarrasingly easy to set off on a set of keys in man's pocket.
