hey just wanted to post what I eventually got:
2010 Silver Toyota Matrix, Automatic, base model + power / sport package (power whatevers + fog lights and front/rear bottom spoilers) + regular carpet mats + autodimming compass mirror
I got it for 15.6k OTD (this is with taxes and fees)
Auto dimming compass mirror was an addon I wanted that they eventually threw in for me but it's an install so the cable is exposed and all but it's still awesome :p
I did get the $1000 college grad rebate and my tax is only 3% (North Carolina, but bought the car in Georgia). BUT I did have to purchase the warranty stuff (adds on an extra $2.9k on top of the 15.6k). I've already signed things to get it cancelled though, just they wouldn't give me the rebate without purchasing the warranty.
But the reason I was able to get it so low right away was because another dealer in the area was trying to sell theirs off quickly (manager special I think).
What tire issue does it have?

Dealership claims because the cash-for-clunker program was so successful, they do NOT have to sell below MSRP (inventory down - price goes up theory I guess). We shook our head and walked away from the dealership and ended up at Hyundai.
We told him we would buy at MSRP if we got the $3,000 off - right now! He only laughed. We walked - all the way to the Hyundai dealership where we bought.

There is another post under Matrix for tire issue - read that post.
But I already asked all the dealerships around here about it - they all plead ignorance. I wanted to know if the "corrected" the problem for the 2010 models. One dealership said they did a major overhaul on design (not just the pretty stuff) so he seemed to think it had been adressed. Who knows.
