2005 Toyota Matrix XRS Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 6M)
We were shopping for a car that could hual 2
adults and 2 babies with all their gear and still
be fun for under 25k. This is it. Forget
reviews that suggested sticking to the XR - its
fun to rev a car up to nearly 8 grand on the
tach. Open the moonroof, turn up the great
sounding JBL soundsystem with 6 speakers +
subwoofer and let it scream. We
needed practicality, we wanted fun, the XRS
delivers both. Still a safe car - front and side
airbags, ABS and the best brakes I've ever
stomped on. Comfy seats, roomy all over for
a vehicle in its price range. Drive it and smile.
