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


Very versatile car. Great ride. Range is a bit on the low side. Has enough power for city driving and merging with traffic. Have yet to take it on a long roadtrip with a load of luggage, kids, bikes on the back, and the A/C running while that 18 wheeler is running up behind me...

Best Features

Great car for commute/kids/moving/tailgating. Enough room in backseat for adults or kids. Nice that hatch window opens. Has 2 cup-holders in the backseat (as opposed to Civic and Golf's 1) which is really important if you have more than 1 child.

Worst Features

More horsepower, but is peppy for city driving. Larger gas tank would be nice. Mileage is great 27-31 mpg, but with AWD model, the gas tank is smaller and the range averages 300-320 miles. Feels like I'm filling up the tank twice a week due to the length of my commute. Lights on sun-roof controls.
