2009 Toyota Matrix 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I am very impressed with Matrix and the versatility it offers. There is plenty of room in the back, especially if the seats are folded down. It is zippy and handles very well on the road. I agree that the visibility out the back is a bit limited, and I am also under the impression the paint may be prone to chipping. I also like the higher seating position as it makes getting into and out of the vehicle much easier. No issues after two long trips, and I don't believe it is any noisier on the highway than most other cars.


Best Features

Fun to drive, plenty of pickup, good seating position, intuitive dashboard.


Worst Features

Perhaps fuel economy, but I'd hate to sacrifice that extra zip.

2009 Toyota Matrix S 4dr Hatchback (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

This car has been excellent in all ways. Very dependable, quiet and comfortable. Yes, a bit of a blind spot, but if you know about it, them you adjust the mirrors and compensate for it. Surprising amount of room for both passengers and for hauling stuff. Tinted the windows and it looks nice and sporty.


Best Features

Ease of driving and dependability.

2009 Toyota Matrix 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I've had this car for a year now and have put 10,000 miles on it. I have been pleased so far. Paid $16,500 for base model with auto, air and power windows. Getting over 30 MPG in mixed highway/city driving. Keeping between 60-65 I can get about 38mpg on the highway. With the back seats down and the front seats up, a twin size air mattress will fit in back. The back seats have plenty of room for 2 adults. Handles relatively well in the snow. Despite all the news about recalls I've had no problems with quality so far.


Best Features

Flat folding back seats. Good city driving fuel economy.


Worst Features

Flat folding front seat on base model.

2009 Toyota Matrix 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

posted a review last Nov. since then the weather has turned colder, more rattles, and the windshield sounds as though it is going to pop out. More paint has chipped off the front end, noise inside the car has increased, and the recall has added to the loss of resale value. I will never by a Toyota again.


Best Features

gas mileage


Worst Features

Improved build quality, improved Toyota customer service, better public relations on Toyota's part, how about Toyota takes responsibility for a problem without being pressured to do so???
