Reliable, great gas mileage, comfortable, safe, spacious, great for traveling
The Toyota Matrix is very reliable, great gas mileage, comfortable, spacious, and great for trips. Since owning it I have not really experienced any issues besides regular maintenance such as oil changes, etc. In the city with lots of stop and go driving I still manage to get anywhere from 20-25 miles per gallon and 30+ highway. There is lots of room in this vehicle to where you won't feel crowded and is awesome for trips because it can more than hold everything in the trunk or if you want even more space you can lower the back seats and make extra room. It has a lot of compartments to store things as well which makes it great if you carry lots of stuff in your car. Overall I've been very happy and pleased with my 2004 Toyota Matrix and definitely recommend it.
