The Matrix is a best kept secret. I had forgotten Toyota made it. The vehicle handles great. Has allot of room inside and I enjoy the leather seats mine came with. The transmission is smooth and the gas mileage is great. I get 32 mpg on the highway and 29 in town. The ride is quiet as well. I set the radio volume when I start up and never need to adjust it. I am very pleased.
Easy to get in and out of and cannot find a blind spot. Has lots of room. The car is deceiving until you get inside.
The only improvement I can see is to add body side molding.
