Review

I didn't think I could find a vehicle
with SUV space and economy car mileage
but the Matrix has both. It's fun to
drive, although a little slow to
accelerate. Passenger room is generous
and the seats fold down easily to fit
lots in the back. I'm glad I got the 5-
speed because my kids can't borrow it!


Best Features

The two-way sunroof is wonderful - it makes the interior seem even more roomy. I love the design - I've been told it looks like a space ship!


Worst Features

Visibility in the back corners is poor because of the way the windows angle up. I had a few close calls with cars in my blind spot until I got used to this. I really notice the lack of acceleration on all but a slight hill. Engine needs more power or something.

Review

The second I laid eyes on this car I
knew it was going to be the one. It
was one of only two cars I test drove;
I needed to look no further. Manual
transmission won out in the end. It
offers a better feel of control as
well as power. I get nothing but
positive feedback and compliments on
my car. Everyone I know really likes
it. I love it!


Best Features

six disc in dash cd changer, electrical outlet 120v, leather/suede interiour, amber lighing, sun roof tilts as well as slides, spacious, fold down seats, keyless entry, and hatchback.


Worst Features

honestly, i can't think of a thing.

Review

If you think you want an SUV but you
know that you'll spend 99% of your time
on paved roads and you only need room
for 4 or less passengers, then you owe
it to yourself to look at a Matrix.
Seats 4 adults comfortably with plenty
of leg and headroom. Rear seats and
front passenger seat fold completely
flat for hauling cargo. Friends who
have driven my Matrix comment on 1) the
excellent driving position and 2) the
ease at which the manual transmission
shifts. Look folks, it's simple: at
$2+ per gallon of gas these days you'd
be fuelish to pass up on an opportunity
to save big $ annually at the pump, not
to mention the $ you'll save vs. the
cost of an SUV.


Best Features

Great value for your money! Upright driving position, joystick-like ease of shifting, cargo capacity, excellent crash test scores, FUEL ECONOMY.


Worst Features

Front bumper should be raised an inch or two to avoid scraping on curbs. By the way, I disagree with those who say that the engine is noisy. You can really only hear the engine upon acceleration. If you want quiet, spend another $20K on a Lexus.

Review

Only had the car one week and I love it.
Only complaint I have is body panels are
thin, but that is true of any car these
days. Two dents already


Best Features

All controls are intuitive. Love the sunroof, air conditioning and cruise control. Plus, loads of hauling capacity with the flat folding seats. This is a lot of car for the mone


Worst Features

It would be nice to have a floor positioned shifter (for manual stick). This would give more side to side legroom. Telescoping steering wheel would be nice
