Lexus for the Matrix - Very Happy!
By MarkZ on


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


Traded in my RX300 for the XR and couldn't be happier. My gas gauge doesn't plummet anymore and I can turn on a dime. Not as luxurious (wife misses heated seats) but love the sporty 5spd manual drive (flashback to my '88 Prelude days). Lots of room for my band equipment and baby on the way. Like the RX, the hatch can hold a lot. Just picked up a massage chair - to the surprise of the staff it slipped right in. Way to go Toyota. Matrix joins my Toyota family of a '97 Previa that I love just as much.

Best Features

Gas Mileage; Sleek look; comfort; Cargo area and superb handling!!

Worst Features

Side mirrors should turn in for us NY city drivers and a little more horse power.
