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

Review

Has been very reliable, gas mileage could def. be better for such a small vehicle. Family of four is comfortable on short travel, bit cramped in long travel. Does have good capacity in hatch to carry things. Many issues with interior, but none mechanically. Very loud street noise and is very rough ride as all Toyota's are in my opinion. Overall have 80,000 miles on it and going strong! No mechanical issues what so ever. Tires were replaced within 1st year. All cars should be standard equipped with back window wiper as it is a huge danger to not have one like me! It stays filthy because of design and mix filth with fog or rain and no wiper and you got problems! Dependability you can't beat!

Favorite Features

Mechanically sound

Suggested Improvements

Cup Holders need a revamp as does most everything in the interior! Radio very low quality! Paint needs improvement. Seat fabric needs thought! Road noise...Please minimize!!
