Too much fun (causing some guilty)
By Don Huffman on


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


Style finally grew on me (been looking at it for 3 years)- I was waiting for a Corolla station wagon - to no avail. I love the tight handling. Love the access to the controls. Very accessible for passengers and cargo (love the small liftback door). Well accessorized. Red instruments are difficult to read (I am a little color blind).

Best Features

Hatch back, tight handling, gas mileage, moon-roof, 6-CD changer.

Worst Features

Make the dash controls visible (the red is terrible - may try to open the speedo and paint the needle white).. Have a REAL spare tire (PLEASE)!!
