2010 Toyota Matrix S 4dr Hatchback (2.4L 4cyl 5A)

Review

This Matrix XR is being driven by a pair of 60plussers involved with elderly care thus requiring transporting elderly person plus wheelchair. This works well due to the relatively high cargo floor and hatchback.

Favorite Features

The 160+ horses make for a quick get-away and effortless ride over the mountain passes.

Suggested Improvements

Hair-trigger gas pedal makes parking in tight spaces a bit nerve racking. A minute motion of the pedal from the idle stop applies already too much power. A more non-linear response(programming?) would be very welcome. I wonder of all those gas pedal problems are partly caused by this issue. A more serious problem is a large blind spot created by the passenger side mirror+stile+high belt line. Repositioning/restyling of the mirror will certainly prevent a few accidents.
