2006 Toyota Matrix 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
Review
This car is OK for local driving, and it can haul stuff from Ikea when back seats folded down. It is quick from 0-30, and is quite slow beyond that. So, plan ahead when merging into busy highway. MPG has been bad so far with 15K mikes, 20 for city and 27-31 on highway at 80 mph. The biggest problem is noise. Annoying at 65mph, and unbearable at 80 mph. It takes many hours to recover from dizziness after 2-3 hours' driving. I recently found a trick to deal with the noise - ear plugs, inspired by a coworker who works in a room with 2-3 hard working pumps used to create near absolute zero (0K) temperature.
Favorite Features
The seats are comfortable. Nothing else. The car is not fun to drive.
Suggested Improvements
Sound insulation please! Or, ear plugs please! Absolutely the noisest car I have driven.
