I love my Matrix! This was my first
car purchase, and unfortunatley I dealt
with a "cheating, deceiving and lying"
salesman. What I thought I was
purchasing was a 6-cyclinder Matrix
with all wheel drive. Instead, what I
found I had purchased was the basic
Matrix XR at the Matrix XRS with added
features price! What a rat!
Out of this world stero system. Alloy
wheels. Futuristic body design. Very
roomy interior. Great on gas and
Needs more horsepower. Has a tendency
to stall when starting off.
THis car hadles very nicely and gets
great mileage. The front wheel drive
is great for city driving and ok on
flat snow terrain. However, it has very
poor traction on ice and snow so
traction devicds are a must. With the
larger wheels, even the smallest/
tightest cable chains hit the wheel
THe interior is comfortable and
appealing. The angle of the steering
wheel is not ergonomicaly correct for a
person 5'4". Visibility and seat
comfort is great.
Interior polycarbonate material
My radiant red car gets lots of looks
and copliments especially from the
gas mileage, hatch back, keyless entry,
radiant red color
Better steering wheel angle
Higher grade plastic paneling on
interior that resists scratching
Option for all weather traction tires
larger wheels and sunroof option
From the moment I saw it I wanted it. I
haven't been disappointed yet. Lots of
fun to drive and handles well. Not much
of anything bad to say except it could
be a bit more sound proof. Outside
noise when driving on the highway isn't
very good. Noise reduction hopefully in
2005 will improve.
I'm on the road alot. I was driving a
Dodge Ram 1500 4wd lifted w/36'
tires.That got 12 gallons to the mile.
I needed something economical but with
flare and style. There is no way I was
going to drive something wqithout
style. the Matrix is perfiect 4 me, its
has style, great sound system and 43
mph.I bought the 5 speed 4 fun and it
Great stereo! i love the style of the
XR with the air dam. I love the rear
hatch back, way cooool. Its comfortable
and the gauge cluster is fun.
All new cars should come with floor
mats. Thats it!
