The Toyota matrix is my first car and has served me for four years.

2003 Toyota Matrix Std

I love that it is all wheel drive and it is a sturdy vehicle. It can handle rain and snow, even. I have the basic model so the features are limited. Due to its age, I have had to complete a couple of repairs, such as replacement of a wheel bearing and replacement of car battery )a couple of times).

Excellent car with an excellent safety record

2003 Toyota Matrix Std

An extremely dependable car. Far surpassed my expectations. Hardly needed anything done to it except brakes. Still going strong with 150,000+ miles on it. I am so sad that they no longer make the matrix, as I would buy again in a heartbeat. An excellent car with excellent safety record too.

Love for the Toyota matrix

2003 Toyota Matrix Std

I have had no problems with it. The performance is great and gas mileage is awesome. I love this little car. I can go from Florida to Alabama on 50 dollars in gas. It is perfect size for me and my kids. This car is very reliable and inexpensive to own.
