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


Bought this in June of 2004. Get about
28 MPG in the city. Has nice grab on
the road. Nice tight corners. Back
seat is roomy. Love the fold down
seats (including passenger front seat.)
Sometimes the front passenger seatbelt
has to be buckled to prevent the
beeping-alarm from going off, if I have
a package on the seat. For some reason
when I locked myself out of the car,
Toyota said they didn't cover the
locksmith to unlock me, and after
debating it with them for 10 minutes,
they discovered they were wrong.
Blamed it on the computer system not
being accurate. That was fustrating.
But it is a reliable car with good gas
mileage. I'd buy it again.

Best Features

Its looks, its handling, good gas mileage, cool guages, headlights work automatically.

Worst Features

The interior manual lights in the car are not condusive for the driver/ passenger to read a map because of their placement on the rear view mirror. Vanity mirrors should light up for night time use. Rear view wiper should have a wider swipe.
