"I am getting 33 mpg highway and 28 mpg city. I purchased my Matrix because of it's ability to fold down rear seats into a large cargo area. I have moved large pieces of furniture with this little car! You can't buy a better car for the price, gas mileage and adaptability."
"I bought my 5-speed manual Matrix 3 years ago after researching several other cars in the same class. I wanted an eco-friendly car with some travel room, good MPG and a fair sticker price. It has been an excellent value for the money. It's quiet, roomy and great on gas mileage. Aside from being a bit sluggish in 2nd gear while speeding up on a fwy on ramp, once cruising it has plenty of pull. Still looks and drives like new!"
"I use this car for work. I purchaced brand new in 2004 and have since racked up 30k miles a year without one problem. I installed the TRD springs, short shifter, exhaust, supercharger, poly motor mounts, and 18" wheels. All TRD accessories have proven to be just as reliable as OEM parts with over 120k on them now. I have hauled 40 2x4s at a time with the hatch closed! I would reccomend this car to anyone looking for a versitile vehicle that gets gret gas milage to boot! The TRD supercharger adds 40 HP and the car still gets 30+MPG on the highway! Highly recomended!"
