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

Review

I bought this car, needing a daily commuter that got good gas mileage, but with enough room for when I'm hauling the 4 kids. I have occasionally kicked myself for not getting the Scion tC instead, bigger engine, more power, more stylish and fun, auto transmission etc., but opted for the Matrix because of the headroom, especially in the back seat, my 13 year old son is nearly 6 ft tall. But all in all, the more miles I put on this car, the better I like it. It has been rock solid since day one, and the mileage keeps getting better! (currently averaging 35.9 over the last 5k miles. Cargo room is unbelievable, I can easily fit two large Costco carts of groceries inside!

Best Features

Hard to choose! Fuel economy, styling, interior design

Worst Features

Stereo could use more bass in comparison to my Sequoia.
