2005 Toyota Matrix XR Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
Since the day I bought this car it has been a pleasure and from now on I will only purchase a Toyota. There is a ton of room for cargo when you fold down the rear seats. The tie down features of the cargo area insures that nothing will be moving while you are driving. The operation controls are all easily reached and with the automated features you do not even have to remember to turn on or off your headlights. I think that the Matrix is a good mix of styling and functionality.
My favorite features are the sunroof, the automated headlight detection, the CD changer, and the tie down features of the cargo area.
The only suggestion I have for improvement is to reduce the in car road noise. On some pavement types this noise level is annoying. I guess I just have to play the stereo louder.
