2009 Toyota Matrix 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 4A)

Review

Gets great gas mileage (avg 33 mpg in mixed driving), comfortable, easy to get in and out, plenty of power in the base model AT, but fit and finish is horrible, rattles in several places, exterior paint chips all over the front (I say paint is bubbling, dealer says road debris), if that's the case, the design is poor, it looks good, but the paint will be destroyed by simple everyday driving. This has never occurred with other cars I've owned and driven on the very same roads.

Suggested Improvements

Power window buttons should be moved lower, I keep putting down back window when I mean to put down the front. Include alloy wheels as standard, better stereo system, six speakers std rather than four
