LOVE MY MATRIX! Zippy pickup from stop and quite roomy inside
(Actually can get two carseats and room for another passenger in between in back seat.) Front seat roomy too as my husband is 6'3" and doesn't mind riding in it. Lots of trunk space and with the cargo cover, also secure. Great gas mileage. Have even used the 110v outlet located in the dash to use my laptop occasionally. Only problem I have had is blowing fuses for auxilliary outlet . . was told by the dealer that Motorolla phone chargers were notorious for this. Only thing I would add is automatic hatch release from keyless entry.

M choice was a RAV4 however! the matrix fits my desires in a car and for less cost. Mileage and passenger space excellent. My passengers are mostly over 6' tall. and the storage room is great.
2006 Toyota Matrix - Rocklin, CA06/17/2010
I just love this car! I traded in a full-size truck and thought it would take me a long time to adjust to a smaller vehicle, but the Matrix has been a very easy transition. The seats are very comfortable and the manual transmission placed up higher, works out great! It handles well and feels very sturdy and safe. It has great pick up and good visibility. I like the side and front air-bags, another added security feature I enjoy. It gets great gas mileage and easy on the wallet at the pump. I love the hatchback style and the back area is just great for hauling items. There is even a "security blindfold" that covers up what you're hauling. Overall, I think it is a sporty, chic and zippy vehicle that anyone would find appealing.
