    <--- 2003 Matrix. Purchased new, 170k miles on it, not a single problem yet.

    Surprisingly useful car. Fold the rear seats down, and you can fit quite a volume of stuff in there. Good choice!

    yeah u dnt often see seats that fold down flush with the back hatch area. it my wifes car so i havnt driven it much but when i do im suprised how much punch the little 1.8 liter engine has and it si nimble. very happy with it so far.

    Yeah, I remember when I test drove mine I was like "Torque steer? From 1.8L?".

    It's a fun little car. Great mileage too.
