We have had the matrix now for over about 1.5 years and she has performed beautifully. 17k miles and not one trip back to the dealership. Gas mileage is 35 combined. the manual is fun to drive and has good acceleration. I bought this for my wife, but I admit that I enjoy driving it every now and then when I want to give my truck a rest.
Manual shift, and gas mileage. Toyota quality!!
Offer a hybrid version that gets 50 mpg and has more torque and you will have a blue ribbon winner!!
