2005 Toyota Matrix XR Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
LOVE IT. What more can I say? Could use a bit more passing power but I don't want to give up the mpg. We got the automatic but I recommend the stickshift. If I had to do it over I wouldn't get the auto. It sucks too much juice out of the engine at high speeds. Otherwise I wouldn't change a thing.
Hatchback utility. great seats. great stereo.
Automatic needs a tiptronic type shift. Either that or more five speeds should be available
