I previously had a 2005 Matrix. The dealership enticed me to stop by and consider a trade in. And I did. My first Matrix XR was the dark shadow grey. Now I have the dark blue which is really beautiful. I recommend the Matrix to anyone who wants a roomy car both in the front and rear seating areas. Lots of head room and leg room. I am 6 feet tall and these were 2 important factors. Plus I get an average of 30 MPG.
Sporty gauges on dashboard. Rides smoothly. Leg room and headroom. Rear hatchback compartment has plenty of room. Engine has great power and torque for a 1.8 litre.
