Good little car
By Mike St-Pierre on
2005 Toyota Matrix Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
Good little car, only a couple small complaints. The fan belt squeaks in damp weather (replaced it twice). And the rear tires seem to wear down very fast. Very easy to get in or out,large cargo area. Fuel mileage not too bad. Getting about 33 mpg on highway.
Ease of entry & exit, large cargo area, back seats have plenty of headroom, stereo rocks!!
Fuel mileage for the automatics could be improved, snow gets in on top of the rear hatch which makes it hard to open all the way.
