2005 Toyota Matrix XR Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I bought the matrix because I needed a utility vehicle that had good gas mileage. The back seats fold perfectly flat, and with the front passenger seat down, I have 8 ft of plastic covered space I can haul lumber and gardening stuff in for home projects.

Favorite Features

The built in hooks on the interior walls keep everything secure. A large dog crate slides in and out with room on top for more gear. There are lots of hidden compartments as well for storage. The design of the front seat/multiple power hook ups are awesome for using a laptop while on a road trip.

Suggested Improvements

It's hard to see what's behind the vehicle, especially at a small child or dog's level. The rear windows are small and mirrors have blind spots. A roof rack would be a nice feature to have, none of the models have one.
