Excellent Car for Families

2009 Toyota Matrix Base

I love this car. It has great space in the rear seat for guest and kids. The performance is great, we have had this car for 10 years with over 100,000 miles on it. Still runs great! I love the hatchback trunk, it makes loading and unloading easy. There is a large trunk space for travel and storage of items. I especially like the comfort of the car.

Can't go wrong with a Toyota!

2009 Toyota Matrix Base

Love the cozy feel of the inside. Only problem I've had is the airbags had a recall on them. The dealership quickly replaced those. It includes an aux port which is great for listening to my own music. It's very spacious and the seats fold down in the back for extra space for hauling items. Great gas mileage.

The best car for my budget

2009 Toyota Matrix Base

It fits everything and yet it's tiny. Therefore, it is so easy to park in the garage. It saves money on the gas because it is small. I love the color too. It is very compact. I carried mattress, big dining tables and moved 4 or 5 times with this car. I cannot recommend enough for this model again

It acceleration Is ridiculous took me a while to get used to it

2009 Toyota Matrix Base

Haven't had too many problems with it minus tires seem to go out on it more than normal. And windshield wiper motor has gone out 3 times now had to replace it but no major issues with this car would definitely recommend buying this vehicle I would say one of better cars that I have owned

- Missy W

It's great for long trips and it's very spacious.

2009 Toyota Matrix Base

I've never really had vehicle issues. The inside is a lot more spacious than it appears. The seats are comfortable and the back can go down to make the trunk more spacious. It's reliable for long distances and the gas mileage is great. It gets the general wear and year but holds up well.
