Love my 08 Matrix XR!
By George O'Conner on
2008 Toyota Matrix XR 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
Great fuel economy, good leg room, lots of storage slots, and great stereo speakers. It has awesome fuel economy for a mid size car, roomy, and handles well. Also it is fun to drive and handles curves and turns well. I gave a 9 for comfort because the ride is a little rough, but not horrible. Still pretty good. I gave an 8 for interior and exterior design because Toyota didn't do much to re-design the 06 and 07 models of the Matrix. Overall I am happy with this car!
Good fuel economy, roomy, perky acceleration, large cabin, good headroom, awesome steering, rides high, plus both rear seats fold flat for storage
