So far liking it.

2009 Toyota Matrix 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
Wanted a 4-door hatchback that got good gas mileage, was comfortable to ride in all day and had a good price. So far this car has pretty much fit the bill. We have 5,800 miles on it in 4 months. We are averaging 35 mpg. 75% interstate, 15% two lane roads and 10% city. Like that you sit up higher so getting in and out is easier. Did have some problems with paint chips on the hood until I installed a bug deflector on the front of it. On rough roads there is a lot of road noise that you can hear inside the car. Needs more insulation. Have a few rattles when on rough roads. I dislike the sound system.
Gas mileage. Fun to drive through curvy roads. Hatchback.
Sound system. More insulation to cut out road noise. Fix rattles in dash.
