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


I've been waiting to test the AWD and I finally got my wish! Snows and compact ice has been all around the renton are for the past two weeks. This matrix AWD S has had no problems getting around. It is very controllable and predictable, even with a foot of snow with the standard AWD. Car is great in normal weather as well. Its great for hauling people around and lots of room for a "compact" vehicle. Road noise can be pretty bad, especially on the rough free ways in Seattle. The gas mileage could be a little better and/or a little large gas tank. Overall very pleased and glad i got it for this region.

Best Features

AWD rocks and have no problem getting around! I love the ability to use both the 12 V and a built in "standard" wall socket. The stereo is great. Its funky shapes always makes people do a double take.

Worst Features

An extra 12v would good for the back seat. A 5 speed may help with the fuel economy. Road noise could be better muffled. It sometimes resonates in the cabin.
