Thoughts? Like it? How's the 4-speed automatic on the highway at 80mph? Thanks for any help!

and why can I find values on a used 06? Seems like the matrix is the only model I can't find used values on-> KBB, edmunds, nadaguides. Thanks!

For comparison the only thing I can think of driving the Vibe AWD is it might have a touch more driveline vibration than the FWD. I have a Vibe GT (that's the Matrix with balls:D ) Love it! We run that little bean can everywhere. Its a 04 pushing 70k miles with NO problems.

I have a toyota, not the 06 but a 1995 4runner. I will only buy toyota's now as this 4runner has 140,000miles and never seen the inside of a garage except for normal oil changes and new tires. The car also looks new inside and out. The interior is not falling apart like some other cars do when they hit 5 years.
GREAT product.

testdrove one today AWD, not bad at 90 on the highway. Saleman said 'take your time' and threw me the keys. 30 minute test drive. I like it, but the numbers need a lot of work! It's bleak

Great vehicle, own a 2005! Great little runabout.

Buy a Subaru (http://www.subaru.com/shop/model_consideration.jsp?model=IMPREZA). Much better AWD system and a bullet proof boxer 4cyl. Great cars. Plus if you have the need for more umph available with 300hp
