2007 Toyota Matrix XR 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
While the gas mileage was a definite plus, the lack of power in this vehicle and the size of other vehicles when driving the Matrix, made me get rid of it. I didn't have any problems with it mechanically. I guess the 4 cyl ran as it was supposed to. I haven't had a 4 cyl for years so maybe it is just me, but the car lacks power and is loud. Low profile made for uneasiness driving in rainy weather. Being in Western PA, I felt that I should get rid of it for when it snows.
Homelink garage door opener, more power, make it so when idling the fan doesn't kick on as much
