Not fancy, not the fastest, but it simply works!

The vehicle has been very reliable since purchase, and gets good gas mileage. Problems have been minimal, including need to replace the battery twice, or replace an ECM under recall. Overall, the work it has needed has tended to be routine maintenance such as oil changes. The car handles well under a variety of driving conditions. It is not fancy and not the fastest vehicle, but for the most part it simply works.

It's a mid-size cars which feels a lot bigger on the inside. It's kinda like the Tardis (and comes in that same lovely shade of blue)!

I like almost everything about my Matrix. It makes great use of interior space. It fits four adults easily and comfortably, five if there are a few who are small and it's a short trip. It gets good gas mileage and I've never had a major problem. I do wish the intermittent windshield wipers were timed a bit differently and that the stereo system had an aux input...or at least the cd player plays MP3 discs.

It's fun but also practical and economical.

I love the bright blue color it is painted. I like that it is a hatchback, so there is more cargo space than a small sedan, and I can fit furniture and even a small Christmas tree in it when the seats are folded down. I like that it gets pretty good gas mileage. I like the sunroof. I don't like that it rides a bit rough and that I can hear a lot of road noise.
