This morning, I bought the Nissa Versa HB I test drove last week.  White, automatic transmission, less than 10K miles on it, prior owner lived in California (thank you CarFax).  It's still under factory warranty for another year, and I added an extended warranty.  I got a very good rate on the loan  - of the three loans I have, mortgage, student, and auto, the mortgage is the one with the highest rate.  I'm changing insurance companies, 'cause the rate my current agent quoted was nonsense.  I got a much better policy for LESS than my current policy on the Saturn (which is whole 'nother story of my agent not doing his job right)

Oh, yeah.  I paid off my credit card on Friday.

You must have really liked it in the first place to not give the Matrix a look. :-)

Does HB stand for hybrid?

HB =Hatchback.

The Matrix got overlooked due to less than stellar reviews from Edmunds and Consumer Reports. It's still a good vehicle, but Nissan and Honda had been doing more to improve their hatchback models than Toyota had, and were better vehicled for the money as a result. Also, I needed to get to a conclusion sooner rather than later. I could have kept test drive vehicles and kept looking for the best out there and kept delaying the actual action of buying a car. I dithered enough just doing the research on which cars to test drive.

I intend to. Barring accident or lottery win, it's probably going to be 12+ years before I do this again.
