Wife loves it

DEPENDABLE, ECONOMICAL AND FUN TO RIDE
By Gary Blankley(Owner), May. 12, 2012
I have owned a Matrix II 170 for a year and put 1000 miles on it. I purchased it used with 150 miles on the odometer. I get 70 mpg and have had no problems. Only dislike is the poor headlight system. Not bright enough, there are two bulbs, one high beam and one low beam. Read Full Review
