2003 Toyota Matrix Wagon XRS Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 6M)


Review

Great Car. Love the speed, maybe a
little sluggish off the line but very
fast in the long run. Love the
interior, very stylish and nice cluster
board. Exterior is awesome. Don't need
to do much on the car.


Best Features

Exterior and Interior. Lots of room in the rear and lots of head room.


Worst Features

Bigger engine

2003 Toyota Matrix Wagon XR Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Overall the car is a good value. Great
fuel economy. Handles well,
accelerates fine, even with A/T. Lots
of room for rear passengers, even
deceptively so, at least my kids say
so. They are teenagers. Like the fold
down seats for cargo. Stereo
acceptable, but cd's seem to skip,
maybe my cd's? Can start car without
headlights coming on by first engaging
emergency brake, then start car. Good
for night starting at certain places.


Best Features

Style, gas milage, interior room, sun roof, handling, accelertion.


Worst Features

Center arm rest too hard, windows fog up inside too easily, too easy for front end to hit curbs, gauges hard to see during daytime, rear view mirror seems to be in weird position, (hard to explain).

2003 Toyota Matrix Wagon XR Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

This is a great all-around vehicle for
carrying lots of stuff or people,
especially for long trips. It is very
peppy around town. The interior has
lots of
space and headroom to spread out
without feeling cramped. I love the
seats; it has a much more spacious back
seat than any other hatch. There is
body roll in tight turns, but the
suspension is very tenacious. If you
check Edmunds six-car comparo, look at
slalom numbers:it was within 0.3 mph of
the Mazda Pro5, and handily beat
everything else in the test! Yet it
still damps bad pavement and potholes
really well. SUV space with the
performance, emissions, and fuel
economy of a car and Toyota reliability.


Best Features

separate opening glass hatch, one-step rear seat fold-down, ULEV emissions and fuel economy over 30 mpg in daily driving with the AUTOMATIC! Also standard keyless entry on XR, optitron gauges, and flip-open round dash vents.


Worst Features

dump the GM radio - it does not visually match the rest of the interior, make ABS standard, make the gauges a brighter color (like white!)

2003 Toyota Matrix Wagon Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I have had my matrix now for little
over a month and I love driving it.
Yes the pick up could be better and the
engine more powerful but it gets me
where I wanna be. It's fun to drive,
super comfy and great on gas mileage
and when you drive nearly 500 miles a
week like me thats the best part.


Best Features

Folding seats, stereo system,


Worst Features

More powerful engine.
