Toyota matrix - no frills but extremely reliable!

Very reliable car that drives well even in mountain conditions. The cab noise can be slightly loud while driving and the interior is pretty bare bones in terms of features but it gets you where you need to be and you do not have to worry about breaking down! Overall I am very happy with it is performance.

It is a reliable vehicle with great gas mileage and requires low maintenance.

I bought this vehicle when I was single and didn't have any children. I think it is great for a single person or a couple. It drives well, has a low maintenance cost, and has a great gas mileage. However, it is to small for a family of five. It does not have enough space to comfortably fit two car seats.

- Ari V

I am sorry they discontinued making this model as it is a very practical auto.

I like the fact that the back seat fold down to make a very spacious storage area. I would like better visibility from the windows. I owned the same auto previously (2004) and it had bigger windows.
