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


Review

We purchased our 2003 Matrix last May.
It is a lot of fun to drive and handles
like a dream. So far we have only one
complaint. When it is sunny, you cannot
see the odometer with sunglasses on.
The head and leg room are great. We
have taken it on our first real family
vacation last summer and look forward
to another great vacation this summer.
Thank you, Toyota for bringing back
the "wagon".


Best Features

We really like the hatch window. It really comes in handy for us. We also like the split seat. We have one child and we can haul things and still have a place for him to sit. One other feature that we like is the way the vehicle heats up so quickly in the winter.


Worst Features

As mentioned before, the digital odometer is very difficult to read when it is sunny. We have found that we have to take our sunglasses off and lean in to read it. We also do not like the fact that you do not have a choice as to whether the lights are on or not.

Review

THE CAR IS GREAT TO HANDLE AND A GREAT
VEHICLE TO TAKE AROUND IF YOU NEED
SPACE AND COMFORT. I TAKE MY MATRIX
WITH ME EVERY WEEKEND TO THE BEACH
ABOUT 100 MILES FROM WHERE I LIVE. IT
HAS PLENTY OF ROOM FOR MY 9 FOOT 9
SURFBOARD AND 2 FRIENDS.


Best Features

PASSENGER SIDE SEATS FOLD DOWN SO U CAN TRANSPORT LONG MATERIALS LIKE MY SURF BOARD, THE SPORTY EXTERIOR AND INTERIOR DESIGN.


Worst Features

FIX THE COMPARTMENT UNDER THE STICK TO STAY CLOSED WHEN THERE ARE OBJECTS INSIDE. TOO MANY COINS CAUSES THE LITTLE COMPARTMENT TO OPEN ON CONTACT.
