2007 Toyota Matrix XR 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


We purchased our Matrix this summer to replace our aging and unreliable Plymouth. It has been a great decision so far. We have taken it on several weekend trips and it is a great travel car. Lots of room in the back for the bags and the dog! It has also been useful in around town driving. The fold down seats in the back are one of the car's best features. We never need worry about bringing home bulky items. I don't find problems with highway driving that others have mentioned. No issues with wind or milage. We average 30-31 mpg around town and 40+mpg on the hwy. Though heavy traffic or driving consistently above 65 mph drasitcaly reduces fuel economy.

Best Features

Exterior styling, cargo space, interior versatility, fuel milage. We especially like the fold flat seats.

Worst Features

Radio! We optioned for the radio upgrade and I am still disappointed with it. No mp3 or aux imputs in particlar. Even Toyota's cheaper Yaris and Scion models and comparable Corolla offered a better radio. Also not infatuated with the looks of the instrument cluster, but it has grown on me some.
