No rear a/c and poor driveability

Vehicle

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

Review

No fun to drive! Plenty peppy for 4 cyl, but handling isn't fun. I got the base model which was a mistake--it didn't have basic safety like ABS or side curtain airbags. It's super cute on the outside, has good room in the backseat. Front cup holders are too skinny for most drinks.

Best Features

I like that it's the wagon version of the Corolla. Cute. Better made than the Honda Fit. Cargo bigger than Fit and Versa. Like the hatchback. Back seat is very roomy. Has been completely reliable.

Worst Features

Needs rear A/C. Kids are boiling in back seat. Doesn't even have vents under the front seats. Not fun to drive. Only get 25 mpg freeway (driving fast and up and down 2500 ft per day).
