Pros

Nice sporty feeling car with great reliability , good power and it still gets compliments after 5 years of driving it, I also find the seats very comfortable even on long drives, and if you need to fit a big item, it can do it!

Cons

Fuel economy could be better in the city and low profile tires not great in snow.

Leased For 3 Years, Now Have Owned For 2, And Can't Find Anything New I Like Better. — I really like this car, and wish Toyota hadn't given up on it. The new Corolla is nice, but with only one engine and no hatchback version, they are missing out on alot of buyers. A new version of the Matrix would sell well with the right equipment and upgrades.

A Practical Hatchback — The Matrix was a great vehicle for a college student. Moving from dorm to dorm, the hard plastic on the rear seatbacks made moving a breeze. Driving dynamics were well-controlled but lacking in excitement. I would recommend going with the 'S'.

Pros

Sweet car, fun to drive, decent gas mileage, can hold a lot of stuff when/if you move. Never seems to have an issue, just change oil and add gas.

Cons

Could be better on gas mileage, audio controls are not on the steering wheel, slightly loud inside the cabin.

Great Family Cargo Car — This is one of the best cars I have ever owned. It looked great and stylish from the day we got it to two years later covered in snow. It's sporty, fun to drive, handles well and can hold a bunch of stuff. Lay flat back seats really makes a nice option for transporting larger items. Toyota reliability means a lot to me; I have owned 4 in a row and never have any issues with them. Doing all the regular maintenance helps and keep from having any issues later. Just a fantastic vehicle all around.

Nice Simple Ride — Gas n mileage is fine, performance is great, still on lease and great service from the dealership. It looks nice inside n out but it does not have alot of trunk space for groceriea or a folded stroller to be stored alone in the back hatch part.

Pros

fuel economy, interior space, reliability

Cons

performance

A Safe Economical Choice — Performance- 1.8 litre base model has no performance to mention, especially on highway or when packed with people and luggage Build Quality- excellent, only minimal problems with weather stripping on rear hatch Style- interior and exterior styling is great, much better then the previous models pre-2009 Costs- EXCELLENT on gas, insurance is relatively cheap, no outstanding maintenance although it is brand new FUN?- surprising loud stereo with aux input, if your the only one in it its pretty fun to drive, handles and performs like most small cars, exhaust sounds better then i thought it would when your foots to the floor
