2005 Toyota Matrix XRS Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 6M)


Wonderful automobile. Had 2004 Toyota
Matrix XR and liked it so much that we
bought another Toyota Matrix when 04
Toyota was wrecked. Most people I have
talked to who saw car after wreck did
not understand how I came away without
so much as a scratch esp. since car was
totalled. Very, very safe vehicle.
Well-built and handles very well.
Strongly recommend this car for anyone
needing economical vehicle, but also
needing room for lot of people. I can
put 5 in including myself. 04 Matrix
had good value and depreciated very
little (much less than many other cars
over the course of 1 yr).

Best Features

Plenty of legroom and one of the few cars where I did not have a major problem with too little headroom. Also like storage area instead of trunk. Like the facts that it has power windows, remote locks,cruise, security features, and CD player. Like the moonroof and esp. the foglights.

Worst Features

I miss my 04 Toyota Matrix as I liked the color better than my 05 Matrix. I wish both cars had come with option for cassette player as well as CD. Also wish CD changer was easier to obtain.
