"Best small car I have ever owned, and I have had few of them. Great Gas mileage, nice fit, solid car. Great to haul things since it has the room in the back. I will buy another toyota !"

"This car can be had for about $13K out the door, and provides excellent mileage, performance, remarkable comfort, and is a blast to shift. The redline on the engine is 8200 rpm! But pulling 6K rpm will move you smartly away from most traffic. I drive it about 100 miles a day to work and back, and enjoy every minute of it."

"I really wanted to like this car. I'm a pretty big guy, 6'2" 200 lbs and traded in my Pathfinder over a year ago for the Matrix. I knew it would be a change but it was good on gas and I didn't need 240 horses anyway. Well, I can't get used to it. it's just too small and cramped. The seat is too narrow and the wheel is too far forward and it takes to much effort to turn. The engine is really underpowered (118 hp) and trying to get up to speed on an on ramp with the AC blowing, for get it. I'm going to take the loss and trade it in for either a RAV4 or Honda Pilot. Some relationships just don't work out."

"The Matrix XRS is as good a small 4 door hatchback as you can get for the money. Power is great, agility in the corners is superb, has a high roof line which I need for my 6'2" body. The six-speed manual transmission is a little touchy, and you need to gentle on the clutch, but it runs like a dynamo when you get in the high 6K's (Redline is @ 8200). Looking to sell mine in the next 2 months."
