Mazda CX-9 Safety
with the great deals on the suv's these days , i have decided to get one.
After reading through posts and reviews i have narrowed on the following vechicles
1) 2008 Acura MDX
2) 2009 Honda Pilot
3) 2008 Mazda Cx-9
Of all the 3 , the MDX is the most fun to drive , however its also the most expensive ( 33K for base , 38K fully loaded )
Next fun to drive is the Cx-9 , the pilot is the least fun , but with the most utilitarian ( with some braking issues according to edmunds review )
The deals are much more for the Cx-9 , so i was shopping for one till i saw the rear-crash ratings in the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety site ( www.iihs.org )
The cx-9 got bad ratings for rear-end crash , the mdx and the pilot got good ratings and the top safety pick.
Is the rating good and reliable enough to rule out the CX-9, except for that i like the CX-9 in all aspects.
Appreciate your input
