2011 Toyota Matrix Base Review
Good Product — Engine way more powerful than the earlier model. Seat covering not meant for family. It get dirty easily. Fuel economy sensibly same as the 2005 model even with bigger engine. Don't like the sound system. Need USB for Ipod or MP3. Happy to have cruise control and sound system control on steering wheel.
Primary Use: Family transportation
Pros: Engine. Options.
Cons: Seat covering. Sound system
