2006 Toyota Matrix XR 4dr Wagon AWD (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
Had my Matrix for almost 3 yrs. and still loving it. Do it yourself maintenance it's easy on it. Wife loves the AWD cause it kicks on Chicago's snowy streets. All around room and versatility also great. Very reliable, car feels as solid as it did on day one.
AWD, plenty of room for its size, folding seats and versatility.
Outside heated mirrors for the snow belt. Telescopic steering wheel. It would be nice if trailing edge of quarter panel windows pop open, like they do in minivans, to get a nice airflow even if they're manual.
