Great car for the money

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


I traded in a large truck for the Matrix. I travel 100 miles a day and wanted a fuel efficient vehicle. This car filled the bill. If I set my cruise on 65, it can get 35-36 mpg, average 33. I thought I would miss the truck's cargo capacity, but so far, it has been fantastic. I can't believe how much I can get in it. The only problem I have had is with the paint. The car is white and there are about 8 chips on the front and hood already with only 20,000 miles. Other than the paint, I really love this car, especially when gas is $3.00 a gallon.

Best Features

Cargo capacity, gas mileage.

Worst Features

Better paint job.
