2006 Toyota Matrix 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Well with almost 16k on it now we haven't had one single problem! At first I thought my wife was crazy for wanting a 5 speed, but then I drove the Matrix. I love the intial acceleration that the manual offers. I leave all of those big gas hog SUVs sitting at the stop light and pass them again sitting at the gas pumps! We are averaging high 30s overall. On a long trip you can get over 40 mpg if you set the cruise at 70 mph. I plan on driving this thing well over 200k so I use synthetic motor oil and change every 5k when the maint. light comes on. I also installed a k&n filter which gives me a little more HP! Go Toyota!

Best Features

Gas mileage and Toyota reliability! Also easy to do oil changes. Also the 5 speed manual is so easy to shift!

Worst Features

Maybe a few more horse?? Also would like to see a hybrid model that gets 50mpg soon!
