2005 Toyota Matrix XR Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
Review
Pros: Engine good enough to get up my hills. Peppy enough for city/traffic driving. Great versatility. Reliable/dependable so far. Cons: Fuel economy could be better. Brakes not that good. Interior rattling/workmanship issues. High speed cornering "squeakish". Wimpy horn. Weak stereo. Hard to start (battery) sometimes. Some dead areas/lag on the drive by wire acceleration.
Favorite Features
Fold down seats. Plastic cargo area. High seating. High roofline for tall people. AC outlet.
Suggested Improvements
Better interior build quality. 4 wheel disk brakes over rear drum. Sealed waterproof cargo area. Better rear visibility. Hybrid or fully electric. Better battery. Stronger AC outlet, at least 400watts. Motorized hatch w/ ability to drive w/ rear window open.
