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


This vehicle replaced a 2005 Toyota Corolla, The Corolla was nearly a perfect vehicle. The Matrix isn't even close to the quality or integrity of the Corolla. The interior plastic is of very poor quality and appearance. The gas mileage as far, far less than the Corolla. It's hard to believe the Matrix is a Toyota. I am not at all pleased with the Matrix. This vehicle has caused me to substantially lower my opinion of Toyota.

Best Features

Sitting position. Reliability. Easy to read and use instrument panel. Easy to enter and exit vehicle.

Worst Features

Better sound system, higher quality plastics in the interior, and better gas mileage without any loss of power.
