2006 Toyota Matrix XR 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


This is the perfect car for me. It is a fun ride, a safe vehicle, very reliable, high quality construction and very economical. For those who want something smaller then the RAV4 this vehicle is perfect. I urge you to get the anti lock brakes, and the AWD. I had owned a Corolla SR5 in the 80s and loved it. This is the evolution of that car which captures the spirit of the SR5 and also gives you the versatility of a wagon. I have owned some nice cars, the Matrix is at the top of the list.

Best Features

AWD, the hatchback, fuel economy, it is zippy (but not fast).

Worst Features

The steering wheel is a bit far forward. It takes some adjusting of the seat to compromose for it's position. It would have been nice if the steering wheel had been less forward or allowed for adjustment to pull it forward. The tilt up and down falls a bit short.
