2005 Toyota Matrix Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


I just bought this car, but I LOVE it
already! This car is awesome. I love
the way it looks. It's stylish, fun to
drive, and pretty affordable. The Matrix
offers a lot of interior room despite
it's "small-car" status. I love that I
sit up higher on the road than some
other cars. The windshield is very
wide, so I can see the road better.

The car isn't "small", but it's not
intimidatingly huge either. It's just
perfect for me. Acceleration is nice,
and the ride is pretty smooth. The
cargo space inside is really roomy and
great for those who like to carry
cargo/tow a lot of stuff. The seats are
actually more comfy than I would have
imagined. Overall...GREAT car!

Best Features

I LOVE the interior look of the car. It's very modern and "techy" looking. The stereo isn't bad at all. Love the way the car handles, and I like the steering wheel. Since I like to be "different" I like the unconventional exterior look of the Matrix. It's very futuristic, and easy on gas.

Worst Features

No real improvements needed yet. So far I love it. If I had to choose one thing, maybe I'd say the stand-still acceleration. I'm not sure what the 0-60mph/second rate is. Maybe my car is too new to really be gunning the engine. Either way, this is not problem for me.
