    A Typical Japanese Mule - Trustworthy But Uninspiring — Great trustworthy car. Impressive gas mileage. I have hauled just about everything from a bathtub to drywall with this car! US Toyota dealerships are the worst I have ever encountered.

    Pros: Gas mileage - reliability - bang for the buck

    Cons: Boring - US Toyota dealers

    This Car Is Amazing! — You ask any of my friends, this car will do anything, go anywhere, pull pretty much anything out of a ditch or snowbank. The performance of this car is great, a bit underpowered when towing a trailer and cargo o the roof, but no complaints. Interior is great, nothing is sharp, all curvy. Same as the exterior, all curves and sleek.

    Pros: Too many to mention... "the little matrix that does".

    Cons: Blocky shift feeling.

    Great Little Car. — Great car. It has great pick up. Tons of room. Quite surprising actually. All but the driver seats flatten. It amazes what I can into the back of the car. Highly recommended.

    Pros: almost everything

    Cons: it's considered a wagon *sigh*

    Great Family Car, Engine Light Comes On For Silly Reasons — I really like my 04 matrix which we purchased used. It is a nice family car. It really has a lot of power for such a small engine. I think the turning radius is pretty bad, small inconveniences like some of the storage bins fall open often and the engine light comes on for ridiculous reasons like the gas cap not being tight enough. Otherwise I love it.

    Basic Hatchback — Basic car that I paid 4,800 for and it has been very reliable. It has decent power, good gas mileage and low maintance costs. Peformance wise, its not bad for a little hatchback, it handles well, good brakes, and again, descent power out of a 1.8L. Interior is comfortable, exterior just minor hail damage. I pay about $40 of gas for 500Km which lasts me about two weeks due to school, work and hanging with friends.

    Pros: Its a good all-around car, good gas mileage, very roomy, lots of storage space in the trunk

    Cons: Not the first choice car for a young teenager looking for a sporty little car.

    I chose this car because it has plenty room for storage and passengers without loosing horse power like most hatchback cars.
