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


I bought this car to save money on gas over my F-150 4x4. The mileage is great at between 29-32 MPG city driving back and forth to work. I'm 6'5" and am amazed at how comfortably I fit into it. It's a very reliable car, in 18 months, I have had no problems. I change the oil and put gas in it. The interior is awesome with multiple seat configurations when I need space. The outlet in the dash is cool, as are all of the other features I have (premium sound, 17" wheels, sun roof, cruise and A/C). With the 5 speed, it runs very well (not a race car), to include highway traffic with the A/C on - no problems!

Best Features

Interior space! Versatility! Fuel economy and reliability. Ride and handling is great. It's fun to drive.

Worst Features

Add 4 wheel disc brakes at this pricepoint.
