My Matrix Design Saved My Life
By staylor80 on


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


I bought the Martix for it's carrying capacity & for my dog. BUT, it was destroyed two days ago in a 5 car collision. I was rear ended 3 times at 55 mph, & struck pick up in front of me. I walked away with minor injuries. EMS & police all commented on the quality of how the vehicle stood up under that assault and the EC nurses were amazed. So, I will be replacing it with a new 2010 model later this week with NO hesitation. The only thing is, I'm looking for way to keep cargo contents from flying around in a crash (things too big for the net that came with the car).

Best Features

crumple zones, air bags, seat belts, and interior design.

Worst Features

Easier access/suggestions for barriers to keep contents from cargo area from intruding in to driver/passenger seat part of cabin.
