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


I find the 2004 matrix XR with auto
trans a very sporty, attention getting
vehicle. I bought it used with 6000
miles on it and have driven it in city
and Highway modes. The only problem I
had was a persistent "buzz" like
rattle from under the left side of the
dashboard. My selected Toyota dealer
repaired it under warranty. It has
ample power, though somewhat noisy
engine on hard acceleration. The
seats are comfortable and the driving
position is ok as well. I highly
recommend the vehicle.

Best Features

Fun to drive. Excellent gas mileage, as high as 34 mpg highway. Cruises nicely on interstates and very agile in the city. Attracts attention wherever I go with it. Very efficient use of space. Very roomy inside with ample cargo space.

Worst Features

Make antilock brakes standard. Design a better armrest for driver's right arm.
