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


It is a smooth riding small car with nice style and acceptable performance. I only have 637 miles on the car so I don't really know about economy but I suspect it will be very good. I like the way it drives on the highway and it's easy to park and handle on city streets. I am getting lots of positive comments about the car... that happens to be radiant red. Overall it will meet all my needs.

Best Features

The stereo system is awesome. I like the exterior design even if it is misleading. The car isn't as fast as it looks like it might be. Seat comfort is good and provides good outward visibility sitting up high.

Worst Features

The dash needs to be redesigned to eliminate the windscreen glare. Also, the engine has a loud growl under acceleration. And the steering wheel needs a telescoping adjustment. It is much too far away while in a comfortable driving position.
