"Just purchased matrix awd two weeks ago getting expected mpg even in bad weather/snow driving. This car handles great in the snow and the engine has good amount of power. Perfomance is lackluster only a serviceable job of accelerating at freeway speeds but can pass uphill just fine. This car handles on rails though. i have already upgraded to the trd air filter and added the rear sway bar to combat body roll during cornering. i will probably add most of the trd performance gear. hopefully this platform will support the 200hp i hope to achieve on it. stock sound system is great and the steering wheel controls are great for the chronic channel flipper."
