Purchased As Not Purchased
We rented a Matrix for 4 weeks while in Florida last month. The car did not handled as well as we though it should. The car was also noisy and cheap sounding inside even on smooth roads.
The interior was very plastic like and made rattleing noises. This drove my wife crazy after a few days. The seat belt were very unconfortable and rubbed my neck on long drives. There was not much storage space for maps and stuff we used during our travels.
The fuel economy was ok at 29 mpg when we drove on the freeway, and not as good as we though it should have been, 24 mpg while doing city driving.

- very nice ride and great value; decent fuel economy

If I knew that it was this great, I would have bought one sooner....read morehide
