Just picked up the Matrix, so far, great car. Very smooth and quite on the highway and around town. Also picked up a 4Runner, so this one will be the gas saver. Save money and go for the lease, this is my first lease, but I think it will be good.
Small passenger airbag cutoff. Daughter is tall enough for the front, but close on weight, airbag turns off when she sits up front. Dash layout. Great cargo area, especially with the seats down. Good body style, have always liked the hatchbacks.
Seats are a bit stiff, but they may break in later. Power mirrors should come with the power option.
