2006 Toyota Matrix XR 4dr Wagon AWD (1.8L 4cyl 4A)

Review

Drove from AZ thru CO, KS to MO and then back thru AR, OK, and NM. Camped out in it a total of 6 nights. A blowup mattress will fit in back with the seats down and forward. Performed well in the CO mountains for the size of the engine. Able to maintain 65-70 mph on the 6-7% grades. Averaged 32- 33 mpg depending on the speed. Great for an AWD! Used the AC outlet to blowup the mattress, use my laptop, and charge our camera batteries. A definite plus! The seats were fairly comfortable for the long-hauls. An adjustable lumbar support would be nice. Has been reliable so far. The sunroof cover squeaked for awhile but the dealership fixed it. No really major complaints.

Favorite Features

Sunroof, AWD (comfort level increases greatly on dirt backroads), mileage, AC outlet. Very versatile car for the money. All around airbags (we feel safe). Spacious interior for the size.

Suggested Improvements

Bigger cupholders, More power would be nice (can't complain too much though with the great MPG), bigger sunvisors, relocate the change holder.
