My 05 just rolled 10k, I love it!
By JML on


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


I love this car! I am a mother of
two, I camp, have pets a home and
work. I can do so much with this
car. Tons of space, fun to drive,
great on gas, smart features, and the
stick gives a bit more power than the
automatic. Always wanted a Toyota,
and have always owned Fords or GM,
never again. Very veristile, nimble
and comfortable. Also can hold it's
speed well. Narrow tires great in the
snow, even without the AWD. Well
worth it car.

Best Features

Mostly everything, love the looks, feel and comfort. Nice dash, smart features such as oil change notice, (maint. req). Glad I got the manual tranny.

Worst Features

Rainguards on windows would be nice. Took some time to get used to seat height, arm rests and window areas, but only because I drove a Ford Contour before this for several years, not the same configuration.
