Great fuel economy in a fun ride

2009 Toyota Matrix 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
I downsized to the Matrix from a Tacoma due to the rising gas prices. I am very happy to be getting an average of 32 mpg. The car is fun to drive, and the fold down seats give you the ability to fit items that you couldn't fit in other cars.
Fold down seats, instrument panel.
Poor visibility from rear/side windows, makes backing up a little difficult. Shifter could be positioned better.
