Ahh it's not so bad...depending on view
By Camp H on


2004 Toyota Matrix XRS Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 6M)


Peppy engine but very noisy, I have a 6 speed manual trans and it's very easy to shift. Radio rocks. Common complaint I read is road noise, that is true. Seats are comfortable. Views are good (rear window is small so that is limited) Only thing that needed to be fixed was serpentine belt had to be replaced & belt tensioner had to be replaced. Other than that the car is extremely reliable.

Best Features

I love the 6-speed manual transmission & this engine. It's very responsive & has a lot of kick to it.

Worst Features

Insulation of some type to dampen the road noise & engine noise. Also factory tires are horrible in the snow. Car is all over the road.
