I ab disabled and the driving position is ideal for me. There is also plenty of room to carry a wheel chair.

My car is a lot better than I first thought. My friends had a Matrix and I thought it looked rather average but since test driving it and buying it I have changed my ,mind and would recommend this car to most people wanting to purchase a practical car at a cheap price. The only fault I have is that the servicing charges are extremely high.

It is good on handling - accelerates well and handles speed bumps with ease, good boot space and you can fold the back seats down for even more room. 1.6 uses less unleaded petrol than my former 2.0 people carrier. Downside is - looks ugly, brakes are always squeaking, its battery needed replacing shortly after buying it (because it was a demo car methinks) and fan belt has broken leading to not being able to turn right - almost crashed going to Surrey because of that!

Problems used to be fixed under warranty for the first 5 years, but now the warranty has run out it seems to be at the garage every month! It is due to go in next week when they can provide a hire car for 2 days. This is because it can suddenly refuse to start after being left for a while, I have noticed when doing several shorts journeys in 1 day. My mum has a Hyundai which is doing the same thing!

I bought this car to replace my 8 year old Honda Civic. No real problems with this; had only done just over 30,000 miles, but both my wife & myself really needed a "higher" car, as we were both in our 60's & finding a bit of a struggle getting in an out of the Civic. The main reason I bought the Matrix was that I had £11,000 from a life insurance policy that I took out in the early 70's, and Hyundai had a special offer on at the time, so I bought one. It is the 1.6 Auto.
