Purchased this vehicle for my wife who did not need her Dodge Minivan anymore. The Matrix is well made and is fun to drive. She loves it. We bought the base model which did not come with mudflaps or cruise control so those items were added. Only complaint is that the base model does not have power mirrors.
Fun to drive with great gas mileage
Cruise control, power mirrors, mud flaps and power driver seat should be standard even on the base model
