Love my Matrix
By jacben on


2003 Toyota Matrix XR Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Having driven and owned many different vehicles, I have never encountered one that I enjoy as much as I enjoy my Matrix. It responds quickly, drives smoothly, gets great gas mileage, holds 4 people comfortably enough for a 3000 mile road trip and looks sporty and fun. Complaints: The air conditioner quit because of an internal air filter that neither I nor my mechanic knew existed. (Once it was discovered and changed the A\C began to work again.) My standard transmission stalls too easily when starting off in first gear. The body has been marred in several places by minor bumps.

Best Features

Appearance and drivability.

Worst Features

Sturdier material at the bottom of the car, below the doors and below the grille.
