2005 Toyota Matrix XR AWD 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
I just purchased a 2005 Matrix XR with option package #2 in silver streak. All I can say is WOW! This car is unbelievably stylish, sophisticated, sporty and practical. The ride is smooth and the XR provides plenty of horsepower with relative ease for my long commutes and city driving. Who would think you could have your cake and est it too in a car? I do and I love it! Mileage is super! Toyota has a solid "10" on this one. Check it out... you'll never drive a suv again (unless you have nothing else to do with your gas money)!
I like the many little storage areas for the driver and the electrical outlets are handy and convenient. The stereo rocks and is crystal clear. The matrix is smooth and handles with ease.
There is little to complain with the Matrix XR. I only find the wind a bit noisy when I have the drivers window completely down.
