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


Overall an excellent vehicle. I
upgraded from a 1987 Accord hatchback
and this was the best match in terms of
price, mileage, and utility (it is
basically a larger, 4 door version of
my previous car). In picking up my
Matrix XR, however, I noticed the fog
lamps didn't work - hence my build
quality rating - it was easily fixed
(need a fuse put in), but should not
have been overlooked by Toyota
(especially since they delayed my
getting this car for a QC check).
Also, try not to buy the "teflon
coating" for the paint, just wash and
wax it yourself. I will give an update
in a couple months.

Best Features

Good power (in manual) for the mileage. Lots of space on the inside. Looks b*tch'in.

Worst Features

ABS standard on all vehicles or at least available in more package combinations! Also better QC by Toyota - see above.
