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


I bought this car for my wife and bought a second for my son. Both cars have the craftsmanship that you expect from Toyota.The interior is much roomier than you would expect from a car that is built on Corolla specs. With the seats folded down, my son can easily fit his road bike inside without removing the front tire. The vehicle gets very good gas mileage (recently on a highway trip we got 32 mpg). Many people stop us and ask about the car, and we always give rave reviews.

Best Features

The instrumentation is very well organized and the red lighting is sharp against the black. The interior re-configures very easily; the passenger seat even folds to a table top.

Worst Features

The automatic does not have the torque it should. I have driven Vibes (their Pontiac counterpart) that seemed quicker. The standard provides a better option here.
