i thought about buying a base matrix , but i knew i would want to order the side air bags since the regular corolla has a bad side crash test . i found out you have to buy the all wheel drive to get the side air bags . they were not doing them on any other model ,they told me they are not selling that well .i just thought i should get them , with the price you should get them .

Two weeks after you posted this message, my 29 year old son died in his 2003 Matrix. The car hit a tree on the driver's side next to his head. The car did not have side airbags. No one should buy a car without them. Nor should anyone buy a Matrix. It collapsed on him like a tin can.
Buy a car with top safety ratings, all the airbags, electronic stability control. See www.informedforlife.org for safety rankings that incorporate as much data as is available.
