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


Review

Only three problems--noisy on the
highway ; that lower front "thing" gets
scraped easily on its underside
becasuse its so low; red dash lights
sometimes make it difficult to see
numbers when it is sunny.


Best Features

Fun to drive. Can load lots of stuff in the back


Worst Features

Get rid of red dash lights

2004 Toyota Matrix XR Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

From the moment I saw it I wanted it. I
haven't been disappointed yet. Lots of
fun to drive and handles well. Not much
of anything bad to say except it could
be a bit more sound proof. Outside
noise when driving on the highway isn't
very good. Noise reduction hopefully in
2005 will improve.

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


Review

This little car has been wonderful for
me. I am an outside salesperson. I love
the room. I love the mileage. And we
have ffound it great for camping. Not
real crazy about the plastic deck in
the bck. We added padding so that cargo
wouldn't slide so much. Other wise, I
really like my Matrix.


Worst Features

Padding in the rear deck, or carpet

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


Review

I love it! Smooth ride...quiet...good
pickup...easy to handle...easy to
park...fun to drive. I love all the
options...I have everything except the
navigational system. I've had it for
almost 3 months and haven't regreted my
purchace and wouldn't change my
decision to buy it if I could! I've
owned several new cars in my life, and
this has got to be one of my
favorites...without a doubt!


Best Features

AWD...sunroof...excellent stereo system!


Worst Features

upgrading the 4 cylinder engine to a 6...although it doesn't feel like the 4 is dragging down its performance any or taxing the engine. I think this might help the fuel economy/gas milage.

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


Review

Downsized from a full size SUV to the
matrix. Lots of room in the back I
love how the back seats fold back and
leaves you with a large area for
storage. The gas mileage is a plus
too.


Best Features

Hard plastic backing on the back seats for a flush fitting.


Worst Features

Make the back windshield wiper standard as it really needs it for safety.
