Love My Matrix
By Susan Weir on


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


I didn't think I could find a vehicle
with SUV space and economy car mileage
but the Matrix has both. It's fun to
drive, although a little slow to
accelerate. Passenger room is generous
and the seats fold down easily to fit
lots in the back. I'm glad I got the 5-
speed because my kids can't borrow it!

Best Features

The two-way sunroof is wonderful - it makes the interior seem even more roomy. I love the design - I've been told it looks like a space ship!

Worst Features

Visibility in the back corners is poor because of the way the windows angle up. I had a few close calls with cars in my blind spot until I got used to this. I really notice the lack of acceleration on all but a slight hill. Engine needs more power or something.
