Mileage is better than advertised
By happy matrix owner on


2009 Toyota Matrix 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Bought the car new after test driving Honda Fit, Scion XD, 08 Matrix. Was looking for best combination of gas mileage and space. This one has it. Now have 2800 miles on the car and the worst mpg was 32, best was 34. This is daily commute into Washington DC, combination of half highway, half parking lot.

Best Features

Dash and controls are simple and intuitive to use. You can adjust the dash light intensity by turning the trip odometer - this cures the washout in bright daylight.

Worst Features

Wish it had a six speed for cruising at 75 to 80 on longer trips (3000 rpm at 70 mph in 5th gear). I am still impressed with mileage without it - I believe it will average 33 to 35 once broken in.
