2005 Toyota Matrix XR Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


My husband and I have been through 9 cars and we bought and paid off this vehicle in full because we like that it was a Toyota (great reputation in quality and durability) it was a four door and had great space and very attractive and sporty look. Unfortunately we've had the worst experience ever out of 9 cars!!! It only has 15,000 miles and I've been in the service deptarment more than I ever did for all my cars combined!!! To all who are looking into this car be aware that some matrix have been know to have a "long-crank" problem (mine is one of them). Sometimes it won't even start and I have to keep trying to start it with the key until it finally does. Very scary especially for a mom!

Best Features

I love the looks, economy, and space dispite its compact look.

Worst Features

Toyota, PLEASE, get this "long-crank" problem fixed before someone really does get stranded.
