#1 of 17 Wagon type SUV's/ Crossovers
Jun 29, 2006 (6:02 am)
You can discuss what you dislike and like about these type of vehicles, if you like one you can discuss it. If you own one you can discuss the make, model and problems you have. Plus things you like. The only catch is the vehicle cannot have a height shorter than 65 inches, or taller than 68.9 inches and cannot have a length that is less than 197 inches. And ground clearance must be at least 7 inches and can be no more than 8.2 inches. The point of this discussion is to inform others about crossovers. Note: if the vehicle has an air suspension the lowest setting counts height and ground clearance.

Lets compare the 2007 Acura MDX to other wagon type 8 passenger SUV's in terms of Technology, size, styling, performance, etc.

You might want to try the SUV's forum or the New vehicles forum for this stuff.
BTW, we own an 03' Acura MDX. Has been very good to us for roughly 92,000 miles. But we are looking to trade for something a bit more fuel efficient. If gas weren't so outrageous, we'd probably keep the car going till it gave us issues.

Keeping that one in mind. But I don't think it would be the winner since it only comes with an Auto and that Turboed motor, while probably a blast to drive doesn't appear to have any economy advantage ove the MDX. At the moment the runners are the Tuscon, CRV and the new RAV4.
The RAV looks to be tough to beat at the moment. The new SanteFe looks quite impressive although fuel economy is unknown and I am actually digging the new Outlander but fuel economy is also undecided.

The 07 outlander is not a good idea. Although mitsu gives it a long warranty if your dealer closes up your out of luck. So with mitsu's financial woes in the US buying any of there models could leave you in a problematic situation.
#8 of 17 Seating for 7?
Jun 29, 2006 (8:24 am)
I've seen a few models thrown in here for consideration, but isn't this thread about crossovers with seating for SEVEN?
Jun 29, 2006 (8:42 am)
But the Outlander does seat 7( not comfortably).

The Outlander does look promising though. And it appears that Mitsu is trying to stage a comeback. Whether or not they are actually successful is yet to be seen, but a competitive product sure is a good start. And this new rig certainly has some decent creds.
