I just traded in my 04 Mustang for an 06 Matrix. This is my first Toyota and I absolutely love my Matrix! The gas mileage is fantastic. I love everything about it. The only small and I do mean small complaint is the engine bogging down when the air conditioning is on and slows the acceleration rate. Other than that absolutely no complaints whatsoever!
The cool dashboard, the roomy interior, the great gas mileage, the name itself "Matrix".
As mentioned above, the lowered acceleration rate when the air conditioning is on.
