Toyota Matrix 2005 Get 'er done car!
This sweetheart has headroom to spare in the front and the back. I have had 2 full grown men ride for 15 hours in the back seat without being cramped. When I went to the nursery to get trees, I was able to get three large skinny pines in the trunk with the seats down. The seats clean up like new and now, at 200,000 miles, I and just thinking about getting new mats. I have never had to replaced the brake pads. This car has only had oil changes at 5000 miles and new tires every other year. The trunk has a mesh net that is great for keeping my grocery bags and neck pillow in without cluttering up my trunk or being a flying hazard if I stop quickly. When we went on a long trip it was nice having a cooler in the open trunk area to grab snacks and sandwiches out without stopping to get into the trunk. If I'm on just the right place and have to punch the gas, this automatic transmission will squeal tires with it's sudden surge, keeping me safe when unexpected situations arise. The dash area touts an electrical outlet along with a accessory port that I keep a double USB port installed. We love to plug in the lap top when we're driving. The sunroof keeps me from being claustrophic and the visibility is wonderful. I wish I would have known how great this car was older and I would have bought it with more miles for less money. I'll never make that mistake again! My only regret is that I didn't get a manuel transmission to feel even more sporty and save even more gas milage. I know it rates 35 but I regularly get around 25-30 MPG.
