Versatile sporty car 2003 XRS 2wd
By matthewinaz on


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


I purchased used from a friend with 90k miles and now has 160k miles and not one problem with it.
There is so much room in this car.
When it was 150K miles I did preventative maintance on it myself(saves money). Front struts, radiator hoses, spark plugs, all fluids, serpintine belt and tentioner

Best Features

My favorite future is the high roof line. Put it next to a camary or accord and the roof is higher. My XRS model is very fast with a red line of 9k with a strong power band. I don't ride it fast at all. Car is very reliable and never has broken down. If anyone is looking for an economical car that will last without problems this is it. I average 28mpg only because it's the sport engine. I did own a 2005 with the base motor and that got 33mpg with the A/C on or off. I can't say how much this car is perfect.

Worst Features

Seat isn't that comfortable. I have no gripes with this car.
