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


Got the stability & traction control [had to wait 3 months for car], handles like a dream. 4" of snow fell not long after picking it up, no problems on hilly back roads. Nimble & stable, seats more supportive than ones in Camry I traded in, noise no worse either. No problem merging onto highways into traffic going over 60mph. Display lights need to be set up/down for night/day but that takes about a second, no big deal. Good gas mileage, good ride, lots of space, good little car. If you know how to drive, it will get up and go when needed. I got the auto but actually like the throaty growl it makes going up through the gears.

Best Features

Being able to micro-adjust the dash vents. Love being able to adjust the seat really high, gives excellent view of road.

Worst Features

Wish heated side mirrors were offered...
