2006 Toyota Matrix XR 4dr Wagon AWD (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
Review
Chose the Matrix for its AWD and price. We had a pretty bad winter in New England last year and the car performed well. The gas mileage is less to be desired for a car this size. So if you are using this car to commute, watch the needle. Also noticed an awful howling noise on windy days coming from around the side mirrors. Upgraded sound system and speakers are'nt worth the money, buy your own. I guess for the money small quirks come with the territory. Pros: AWD, cargo space, sporty looks, minimal time at the service dept. Cons: Fuel economy, horrible acceleration, wind and road noise, sound system.
Favorite Features
A.W.D.,sporty looks,reliability.
Suggested Improvements
The Matrix has sporty appeal, but lacks the performance of a sports hatch. Maybe the people at Toyota should cross the hall and poke their heads in the Scion office.
