"I have had my 2006 XR 2wd for a little over 2 yrs now and I still love it as much as the day I drove it away from the dealership. Could use a little more engine power, but that's okay. Gets great gas mileage and I love the hatchback. I can fit the baby stroller in the trunk area (with the back seats up) without a problem whatsoever. I'm still puzzled as to why Toyota doesn't advertise the Matrix at all. It's a GREAT vehicle! Thanks!"
