I Love My Matrix
By Heather on


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


I bought my Matrix Certified Used from my local Toyota dealer almost a year ago and I am loving my Matrix! The cargo room is awesome (we like to fold down the back seats and sleep in there on camping trips) I have been so thankful to have the cargo room because I have needed it many times! The gas mileage is AMAZING! It has plenty of pep but as other reviewers mention a little more power would be nice at times. I think the new 2009 model is cool looking but after taking a look at the dealer I think I like my 2006 better, the new one seems like they got cheap with the materials a bit. The nice shiny gauge and stereo display are now a faux silver plastic, and overall it does not seem as solid

Best Features

Gas mileage, appearance, fun to drive, reliable. The back hatch and the fact that I can open either just the glass or the whole door.

Worst Features

A little more pep in lower gears, better factory stereo, MP3 adapter. More cup holders (there are only 2)
