Perfect for the whole family and your pocket book!

It is over 10 years old and it is never had a problem. If you keep it serviced it runs wonderful, and takes you where you need to go. It has deep leg areas so you do not feel like you are sitting on the ground. I can comfortably take my grandmother around town and she does not have problems getting in or out of the vehicle. The air conditioning is placed in the front only but there is so much room inside the vehicle heat and ac reach the back passengers in a short amount of time. It being a Toyota, parts are super easy to replace and if something goes wrong it is cost efficient to replace. I got a new belt and it was super cheap the mechanic also fixed my routers in the same day.

My silver chariot and me - life of a retired woman, making the most of my life.

Very dependable! This car has never let me down. I like the size for either turning into narrow places or laying down the seats to haul things. It holds so much! My mechanic tells me what a great car it is every time I take it in for routine maintenance. It never fails to start, which I am so thankful for. I am a widow and I really feel secure having a dependable car. It has over 200, 000 miles on it now and is still as dependable as ever. I like to camp with just me and my dog and my matrix holds all the supplies I need to take with me. Oh yes, my car has a name! The silver chariot!

It is simple to drive. The only thing that can cause issues is the touchy gas.

It is not a bad car. Overall it very reliable and we've had it for a long time. The gas is kind of touchy but that is my only complaint really. It is a pretty standard car, and it does what you need it to do. I think that the only reason I do not think it is great is that I have driven a nice BMW from time to time to that kind of puts this car to shame. But that does not change my opinion of the car. I still think it is a good car especially for a first car, as Toyotas are very reliable and last a long time.
