I love my car. It has all the bells and whistles. It handles great and it is very punchy. I bought the Corolla in 2004 and was really wanting the Matrix and I was kicking myself the whole time that I didn't. Now, I'm glad I did. I drive a lot and spend a lot of time in the car and it is absolutely perfect for me. I have the S package and it has the Camry engine so it has some get up and go and it maneuvers superbly. For a small car, it is quite smooth riding. The only negatives I can say is that the stock stereo isn't that great but its not bad either. And that the hard shell in the back makes things bounce around a little noisier than I like but I put a rubberized liner in it and it quieted it down enough to be bearable.
I went into the dealership ready to buy a Camry when I saw the Toyota Matrix in the showroom. I was looking for a car around $16,000 and provided good gas mileage. What made me buy the Matrix was its good gas mileage and practicality. I often have to deliver luggages from the airport and with the back seats down, this hatchback can easily fit in about 8 bags. I was surprised to find I could put skiis in the back, the room is that big. The car handles well and its acceleration is good for a 4 cylinder. I am appreciating the good gas mileage and it it is stylish. For someone 6', the car is very easy to get in and out of. I would have liked to have more leg room. I find I can't quite stretch my legs out like in other full size cars. I've had this car for 2 months now and so far it appears to have been an excellent purchase for the money.
