Why the 2006 Toyota Matrix?

Why Not the 2006 Toyota Matrix?

Quietness

I find the car faily noisy. Engine and wind noises are too pronounced.

Ride smoothness

The suspension is too stiff although shock absorbance is ok.

Powertrain performance

The engine has no low end torque, you have to rev the engine very high to get any decent amount of power. Also, I find going from fifth gear to fourth is not smooth. It is much easier to go from fifth to third gear. Also disappointed with fuel economy.
