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


I got the matrix certified used in 2008, and never had any problems with it.
I'm at 90,300 miles and it still runs great. It has great cargo capacity for home improvement projects.
I've hauled anything from a 55" led TV in the box, to 600 lbs of ceramic tile, and it works like a champ.
Good acceleration, good gas mileage.
Like others, I have a tiny complaint about the small compartment under the shifter not staying shut, but other than that and some random rattling at times, it has been wonderful.
We also have a 2004 corolla, and have experienced nothing but the best quality from Toyota.
We're happy Toyota customers, who will be grabbing the 2014 Highlander as soon as it shows up.

Best Features

Cargo capacity, slick sporty upholstery

Worst Features

Compartment under shifter never stays shut, some rattling that is probably due to the car being almost 10 yrs old.
