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


Downsized from a Buick Century for economical reasons and am very pleased. The comfort & handling of the Matrix is beyond what I thought it would be. I am very satisfied with the 1.8L engine, it's enough for what I need, it has enough pick-up for passing, etc. Responds very nicely, turns tight corners, easy to park. Loved the colour choices... we picked charcoal gray.

Best Features

The over all look, the dash (the huge glove compartment & all the nooks & crannies). Heated side view mirrors, and the head/tail lights. Actually, the Matrix had a lot of features my Buick had so I found that very attractive when shopping for a new car. Slick little beast!

Worst Features

One major thing would be to have a shift-lock for the automatic transmission. Regarding where the shift arm is located, I accidentally knocked it into neutral while driving. And for my size, the rear view mirror does block my view. Nothing else comes to mind.
