Good looks, poor ride
By lizstx on
2009 Toyota Matrix XRS 4dr Hatchback (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
We've nicknamed our Matrix the "covered wagon" because of how horrendous the ride is. Every bump, pot hole, and dip is magnified many times over by the fact that the "sporty suspension" makes this car feel like it has no shocks whatsoever. It's loud, rough, and we regret the day we bought it. Spare yourself the pain and pass this one by.
