Money well spent!

2005 Toyota Matrix Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
It's almost as fun as my MR2, cooler than a minivan, slowly chews the dinosaurs (gas), is functional inside and people love my indigo ink exterior. We've owned 2 other Toyota vehicles over the last 20 years - my wife and I put over 500,000 miles (not kilometres) on both and spent just under $900.00 Canadian total in unexpected (not routine maintenance) cost between them!
Fun enough, visibility, very well constructed, sporty, space.
Only one: rubberize the cargo area. Try to make it non-slip.
