2007 Toyota Matrix 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 4A)

Review

Rented a brand new '06 Matrix (1K miles) on a vacation trip. We were thinking of buying one, so it was a great to test one out for an extended period of time. Gas mileage was great, but it lacked power (was very loud as it kicked into lower gears on hills - 2 people and luggage), accelerator was very sensitive, and the interior felt very cheap. Seats were comfortable for a few hours but sagged after a while. Should be OK for local commutes. Exterior shape is pleasing to the eye but put together cheaply. We hit a small pothole at low speed (5mph) and one side of the front air dam popped off. Found out that it was held together by plastic screws when I went to snap it back together!

Favorite Features

Exterior shape, gas mileage, folding seat backs.

Suggested Improvements

Sound insulation, cheap interior feel, cheaply assembled exterior, loud engine on hills, accelerator too sensitive.
