"Over 200k miles and still going"

Great gass milage, fun to drive, easy handling
Steering wheel does not telescope
This is the second Toyota I've put over 200k miles on. The first was an '87 fx16 carolla, the second is an '05 matrix XR. Its been driven in all types of weather, including ice and snow, and temps above 100F. I've never had a garage, so the clear coat is gone on the roof, but the engine is as responsive as it was the day I bought it, still gets 30 mpg and the AC runs super cold. I've never needed anything more then regular maintenance on it and a new alternator when I hit 200k. I plan on keeping it until it costs more to keep it running then it's worth. Then, I will buy another toyota!Read less

"Great Value and Reliability"

Reliable, needs little maintenance, fun to drive
Small interior space, O2 sensor
Ive owned this car for 9 years and I love it. From driving in the snow on dirt roads in the mountains to cross-country road trips where I folded the seat down and slept in the back, it is functional and reliable. The features are basic, but it is very durable. This car has been on rough roads, packed with stuff to the brim, and driven over steep mountain passes. With more than 200,000 miles, it does run a bit rough with an elevated idle and some creeks and squeaks, but Im confident it will go another 100,000 miles with the proper care. Ive never had any major engine issues, such as the transmission or other expensive repairs, and have done all the basic maintenance on it to keep it in good running condition. It has the same clutch since I purchased the car in 2009 and I have put 165,000 miles on it and its still going strong. My one complaint is that it needs to have the O2 sensor changed more frequently than it seems it should be. It is not a difficult or expensive fix, but takes some time (I have replaced it 3 times in the time I have owned the car, YouTube some videos to see how easy it is). Overall, extremely satisfied with this car. Would definitely buy another one.Read less

"Love My Matrix!"

Great price, fun to drive and terrific mpg!
Higher than average noise level.
This has been my favorite car ever. My husband calls it the poor mans Porsche (we used to own one) because the pep is definitely there in this 5-speed manual and its fun to drive. The cargo room is amazing with the fold down seat capability. The only thing thats ever been bothersome is the noise level in the car which seems a bit more than normal. I also get 36 mpg (consistently for 11 years!) which is amazing. Im very bummed they dont make this car anymore because Id love to get another in the near future. The only problem I ever had was when water started leaking in through the moon roof/sun roof. I thought it was a defective gasket or something but eventually figured out that the drain holes had become clogged because tree debris had blocked them up. An easy fix and I learned not to park under that tree ever again! All in all, a great car at a very reasonable price (I paid 18,000 for it in 2007).Read less
