I've owned this car for about a month and my conclusion is I really like this car. Had an Accord prior and wanted to size down for more gas savings and better maneuverability with a small vehicle with good storage space. I liked the balance offered by the Matrix and thus far it has been a great little car. I got the 1.8 engine on purpose to save gas, and it is surprisingly peppy. I'm going to the beach and it's amazing what I can fit into such a little car. I'm having a blast!
Storage area with fold down flat seats, automatic head lights, the outside look of the vehicle, and gas mileage.
More storage areas in this vehicle, upgrade interior material, and a little more width in back seat to fit 3 adults.
