2009 Toyota Matrix 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
This car drives very easily, however the fit and finish is horrible, rattles since day one, tire issue within 1st 3 mos. Toyota service awful, seems very cheap, not worth the price, poor paint quality, paint is chipping off the hood, design looks nice, but the front end needs a redesign to prevent the damage done to it from simple everyday driving.
Steering is very easy, good gas mileage (ave. 33mpg).
Better front end design, ipod connection standard, better fit and finish, better quality paint, better Toyota service (nothing is ever their fault).
