2007 Toyota Matrix 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Got rid of my Nissan Pathfinder for this ride. I've put 800 miles on it so far without any problems. The manual tranny shift is at hand level which makes changing gears pretty effortless. Overall the vehicle is quite nimble and fun to drive although the engine is noisy in 1st and 2nd gear. Once up to speed it rides well. Mileage is a solid 26 city, 29 highway. As others have noted the suspension is stiff so when you hit a bump or pothole you feel it. As you know the storage is fantastic with hatchback convenience. If you haul a lot of outdoor gear like skiis, camping equipment or a bike this is the car for you.

Best Features

Great dash and control layout with eye catching red illumination. Excellent sight-lines with no blindspots.

Worst Features

More soundproofing and a better suspension would make this a 10 all around.
