2008 Toyota Matrix XR 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


With gas prices soaring, had to trade in my 07 4dr tacoma. Didn't make sense for 50 mile daily commute anymore. Even in Atlanta traffic, I still manage 30-32 mpg with an xr automatic. Granted I'm not driving aggressively or rarely top 60 mph. First vacation trip this week with 3 people, luggage, running air & 65-70 mph - got 34.5 mpg. I've never got under 30 in 3 months of owning so far, beating the window sticker. Still able to pack enough with wagon like features.

Best Features

Mileage, styling.

Worst Features

The ride is stiffer than other high end toyotas/lexus have prior owned but that is part of the marketing of the car. I actually enjoy the feedback for city driving.
