toyota has a famous quality reputation. personally, we were disappointed with our first toyota. see full Toyota Matrix review

First - irregardless of the negative press our country have been throwing at Toyota, this manufacturer have proven themselves to be #1 in dependability and lowest CPM year after year after year. IMHO the negative is shamefully 100% BS in an effort to swing US buyers away from the so much better and time proven Asian imports. 2) Ease of entry and exit, spacious rear seating, driving fun and the performance is more than adequate, AWD is perfect for our Pacific NW winter driving, hatchback is so convenient for our needs, fold down rear seats another HUGE PLUS!, attractive styling, we're not selling but the resale is and will be excellent. see full Toyota Matrix review

Honda is basically resting on its past laurels with this car. It could be the best car sold here in the USA. Honda's new Accord is fairly quiet, but it seems that they have ignored the vast majority complaining that their cars are noisy for years!. They seem to be associating ambient noise as an acceptable quirk. No longer. There are smaller more efficient cars that are a lot quieter. Being the most reliable does not equate to truly being in love with the car. If this car was quieter or smoother riding, I would absolutely buy it even with the price premium. Until then however, my money is better spent elsewhere. see full Honda Fit review
