2005 Toyota Matrix XRS Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 6M)
Just did what my friends called the
unbelievable. I traded my '02 Acura TL-
S in on my new Silver Streak Matrix
XRS. To those who say I traded down I
can only say that this car has brought
back FUN into the driving routine.
While I do miss the heated seats, that's
all that I miss. Love the handling and
the punchy little engine. The six
speed and shifter feel Euro. The cargo
space in this car is amazing. For
those of you that are weekend warriors
you'll love the pop up rear window for
2 x 4s. Got all the toys except Nav.
There were only two XRS's in my area.
One was the color that I
wanted. "Traded down?" Not in my
book. P.S. - Stomp on her and still
love the improved fuel economy!
Exterior styling, rear lift window, and
gear shifter on the XRS (very sporty
chrome accent). Easy seat fold down.
Can only say good things about this
car! Love the 17inch wheels....spend
the $$ and treat yourself to
these....make a huge difference.
One touch back sunroof. Power to close
windows and moonroof after key
removed. Autodown on windows with key
