2007 Toyota Matrix XR 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
I have only owned my Matrix a week, but it is fantastic! I traded a Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. I thought I would miss the 4X4 and size. No way! This Matrix has already pulled itself through the snow, is a joy to drive, reliable, and the gas savings is amazing! I also got everything that I had in the Jeep into the Matrix. Yes, it is smaller and the steering wheel is a bit closer to the dashboard than I am used to, but it is worth getting used to it over time. Definitely check this car out! You won't be disappointed!
I love the sensible and comfortable design. The heater is fantastic, no hot or cold spots. The radio system is to die for!
The heater control in back of the shift is a bit awkward to get to. Minor detail.
