Solid and versatile
By Northeast driver on
2006 Toyota Matrix XR 4dr Wagon AWD (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
I have owned the Matrix for a little over 8 months and living in the Northeast have driven it in all types of weather with complete confidence. I have found the ride comfortable and the handling enjoyable. The interior room is superior to many larger cars. And I feel the versatility in unmatched. Other reviewers have stated that the vehicle could use more power. Yes, more power would be nice, however, only if the MPG’s would increase or stay the same. I have yet to experience a situation where the engine power was not sufficient and most of my driving includes highway miles.
What I like best is the cars versitility, gas mileage, and appearance
More interior options, Stability control and Traction control on 4WD models.
