Marixn 09 disappointing!
By Poormel on
2009 Toyota Matrix S 4dr Hatchback (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
Not particularly fun to drive, has awkward sitting position, seat doesn't travel far back enough for my comfort. I get a back ache after 2 hours of driving, which I don't get in my '01 Corolla. Emergency brake lever placed in a bad position, it seems to be always in the way and can easily be pulled up by a child or you by accident. It creates a cramped area in between 2 front seats. Rear seating room is very limited. Doors sound cheap when closing them.
Rear room is great, mileage not too bad, good brakes. Stereo is decent quality.
Definitely Front Seating room and mobility of seats an issue. Place the emergency brake lever on the floor to create more space between the 2 front seats and make it more safe.
