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


I have had this car for almost 4 months and I like it a lot, I wanted the hatchback for carrying around stuff like my bike. I like that it sits higher off the ground like my suv did. Great gas mileage. The base model has enough power for me. The gauges take some getting used too, I can see them even with sunglasses on but in direct sunlight (usually at sunset) they can be hard to see.

Best Features

Flat fold seats. Heated side mirrors are great for the winter, I also added on the remote start. Tire pressure system was already useful as I had a nail in my tire. Adjustable seat height adjustment is great as I am short. Intelligent airbags are a bonus (I am small enough to have them turned off).

Worst Features

I bought off the lot but I wish I had gotten another color interior besides black. It makes the car extremely warm when it hits 75 degrees plus. Also please add a compass, I drive some country roads that turn and twist. That feature is standard on a lot of other cars, including my old Saturn Vue.
