I Love this economical sweetheart!
By Nina Wilson on
2008 Toyota Matrix 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
This is my 4th Toyota and I have been blessed with economical bliss with this vehicle just like the others. This is a car that works hard all day and then cleans up easily to play in the evening. Sharp looking. Back seats folds flat to make a level cargo area. Will carry 5 people comfortably and gear in the back cargo area.
The 5 speed transmission makes it very peppy and it merges very well. I feel safe in this car. It gets wonderful gas mileage, at least 34 mpg. I really like that with the price of gas at $4 a gallon. I can put 20 bags of mulch in the cargo space and it drives smoothly. Tight turning radius.
