We bought the Matrix because the wife wanted an SUV and I wanted a Camry, this became our cross breed. The Matrix is a wonderful car, except when backing out of a parking lot, it is made a lot like the Camry, yet it is big enough to to feel like you're driving an SUV. We feel that we have made the best choice that we could have made at the time and are looking into buying a second Matrix.
Our favorite feature is the size of the Matrix, and handling power.
