2007 Toyota Matrix XR 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
Review
After 11,500 miles the Matrix is finally broken in enough to review it. The usable space is fantastic. It has plenty of zip for city/town driving (especially w/ TRD performance filter). Ours is loaded as possible w/ sunroof, wheels, upgrade stereo, ABS, airbag package, trim package, etc. These cars look silly w/o the extra trim IMO. My disappointment rests in the cars rattles in the dash and elsewhere. Way too new for this, and whatever happened to legendary fit and finish. Lousy Gdyr tires and their harsh ride had some to do w/ onset of rattles (better ride and fewer rattles now w/ Michelin tires), but it's still no excuse. Best mileage thus far has been 33 mpg (highway), disappointed.
Favorite Features
Convienence of hatchback and awesome storage. Sunroof. Good space for all passengers. Good zip around town. Decent stereo.
Suggested Improvements
I don't like this car on hwy and interstate because of its tendency to get blown around and the loud wind noise generated. Its shape, while attractive, is so broadsided that wind gusts from the side will really move the car. Better stock tires are also a must. Finally, mileage should be in high 30s
