A nice reliable car that does the job.

2006 Toyota Matrix XR

It is fairly reliable and works great. Never had any major issues other than the small things like oil changes, new tires, etc. As long as you keep up with your vehicle nothing bad should happen. Everyone knows Toyota is great brand and holds up well and the vehicle I own stands up to that. The seats are very comfortable and the interior is alright. Nothing too fancy, it is a cheap and good gas mileage car so you should not expect anything too great but the car does the job. I would recommend the car to anyone else who is in the market for a nice and reliable car.

Great Car great mileage well built

2006 Toyota Matrix XR

Got this car on whim, out of need, 12 years ago. It wasn't what I was looking for, but she fit the bill. This car has given me no problems even after 243,000 miles. I have performed regular maintenance and had to replace brakes, clutch and starter, each one time, in the 12 years I've had it. She is comfortable- even tall people are impressed with the leg room in this model year. I am still driving her because nothing else out there rides like her with the gas mileage - average 34 mpg.

My junker Toyota surprised me!

2006 Toyota Matrix XR

Toyota is actually a really great brand and are famous for their reliability. I have had problems with my particular Toyota, but I bought it used and wasn't aware of the issues with it until it was too late. It has had smog issues, exhaust manifold problems and a couple of recalls for the ECM and the passenger airbag. But with all of these issues, it honestly has never actually broken down and left me stranded! It just keeps on trucking!

Great storage and All Wheel Drive

2006 Toyota Matrix XR

I love that the back seats of the Matrix fold down all the way. This makes it really easy to transport large or bulky items. I also like the netting in the back that allows you to secure smaller items in the trunk so they don't slide around. The car is a nice size, and the AWD is very nice to have in snowy weather.

This car can go the distance.

2006 Toyota Matrix XR

Very reliable in any kind of weather. Some minor parts recalled, but that was manufacturing fault, if I didn't get the notice in the mail, I wouldn't have none. I didn't have any trouble driving it. Toyota cars have a lot of road noise, but they are good on gas and great for long distance travel.

Great car with lots of space

2006 Toyota Matrix XR

This car is extremely reliable, and it is also fun to drive. It has a lot of room for cargo inside. I was able to pack it quite full for a move across the country, and I still had plenty of room for me and a passenger. I have not had any mechanical problems or issues with it.

The Toyota Matrix is the car for SUV drivers

2006 Toyota Matrix XR

The size is. The hatchback and ability to lay down the seats provides additional space when needed. The gas mileage allows me to save each month. I like the compact size. It makes city driving a bit easier. This car gives you the space of an SUV without the bulk.
