Nice little car
By 1st Toyotabuyer on
2006 Toyota Matrix 4dr Wagon AWD (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
With just a little over 1,000 miles on the odometer am getting about 27 mpg average. This is a nice quiet little car and seats five easily. Runs smooth and handles well. I like the cruise and all the power options. It does ride quite low to the ground, which is nice on clear dry roadways, but not for winter driving conditions. The AWD is fantastic. We can rely upon it to keep everything moving in slick conditions. I am hoping that the mpg will increase a little over time. But very satisfied so far.
Power options,and AWD. The sound system is good as well. The styling is eye catching.
Re-route the exhaust on the AWD to increase the MPG. Make the fog lamps standard on all models and raise the ground clearance on the AWD models
