2010 Toyota Matrix S 4dr Hatchback AWD (2.4L 4cyl 4A)
I have been driving small to mid size SUV from Nissan, Toyota, and Jeep brand. However gas was just killing my wallet driving SUV. So i sold my gas guzzler to get a new car and I got the 2010 Toyota Matrix S AWD with sports pkg and alloy wheels. On conservative driving i get a combined MPG of 24, and on aggressive driving i get around 21 which are within spec. Lots of power with the 2.4 L engine with VVT-i system just like the lexus with torque on demand without lag. Powerband is most part linear with lots more room to go up. Reliability has been good with steep discounts and complimentary free maintenance given by the dealer for 2 years. This car definitely saving me money
Driver seat height adjustable, and telescoping steering wheel. Huge rear passenger leg room, and cargo space. Also the sun dance metallic color. Definitely get a 3M film for this car for sure which I have
Interior plastic build quality needs some improvement and paint chips too easily which needs the 3M film protector however, it is not as bad as Subaru paint.
