2005 Toyota Matrix XR Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
I traded my IS300 Lexus for the Matrix XR. The car is great! It has virtually all the options as the Lexus, save a few. It handles well, and for my purposes has excellent excelleration. You will love the cargo space..it is the most versatile car I have owned. Quality-wise it is on a par with past Lexus and Mercedes I have owned. Bravo! You will not be disappointed and the gas mileage is very good. I get 26++.
Looks, cargo, gas mileage, fun to drive (I have a 5 speed manual).
Lower add-on body panel can scrape curbs and parking stops.
