2004 Toyota Matrix XR AWD 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


The car is very reliable and fun to drive. It took a while to get used to the seats since they sit very high. I do have 2 complaints; as trivial as they are, the latch on the compartment at the base of the gear box won't stay closed and the slightest bump in the road pops it open or it falls off completely. Second, when the windows dew up from the outside, you can generally roll your windows down and it would squeegee it off. Not with my Matrix; I have to stop the car and get out and wipe off the side windows so I can see; otherwise, I have to roll the windows down. Aside from that, I have no complaints and would recommend this car to anyone

Best Features

AWD (handles great in the snow and rain), 6-changer CD, sun roof, the fold down back seats and the latches where I can attach a bungee cord to secure my cargo.

Worst Features

Heated side mirrors (a must). Fix the latch on the compartment at the base of the gear box. Longer sun visors.
