2010 Toyota MatrixSally - Park Forest, IL04/01/2015
I would recommend it with reservations. I recently drove a Ford Escape while my little buddy was in the hospital after an accident. It was a much bigger car and less fun to drive, but got equal mileage on my commute. I think a better transmission would make this car perfect for me.
Love my Matrix!
2007 Toyota MatrixAnn - Bel Air, MD04/22/2008
If I had it to do again, I'd buy another one. This car is great!
I'm averaging 32 mpg, mixed highway and city, with an automatic!
Plenty of room, even for my 6'5" son, and plenty of cargo space.
Only downfall would perhaps be the acceleration, it doesn't have a lot of pep.
2003 Toyota MatrixEsparza's - Tucson, AZ02/19/2008
We bought our 2003 Matrix and love it. It is an exceptional vehicle with dual purposes. We can haul stuff with the fold down seats and sit 5 people comfortably. I can't wait til the summer to go camping in it. And we also want to take a trip to the beach in it .
