Nice car, but last Toyota
By Ralphus on
2007 Toyota Matrix 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
This is a nice car. Excellent mileage, easy to drive, comfortable, for a small car. Lots of road noise, but it's a small car. The deal killer for me, is you can't lock the doors with the remote if the door(s) are open. You get home from shopping, it's raining, you have to get out, unload your stuff in the puddle filled driveway, getting your stuff soaked, fish your keys out of your pocket, lock the car, and get your stuff. Had I known about this "feature", I would have not bought this car. Instead of pushing the button, you have to hold the button on the remote to open the glass hatch. It's faster to use the key. Bad design choices.
Great mileage! Easy to drive. Roomy enough inside, for a 6'4" 350lbs man and an 80lbs German Shepard.
Fix the problems with the remote keylock. Add more sound absorption to knock down the road noise.
