Default Consumer Reports rate Ford Flex and Mazda CX-9 in the top 5 SUVs





Quote:
Just yesterday, Ford announced that it will offer a $2,500 cash back incentive on the 2009 Ford Flex due to slow sales. Today,Consumer Reports has announced that the Flex along with the Mazda CX-9 are one of the top five three-row SUVs they tested.

Ford’s new Flex wraps a versatile, cavernous interior in a distinctly boxy styling,” the magazine writes. “It is also lower and more wagon-like than the others in this class.”
Among 17 models tested, the new Ford Flex and Mazda CX-9 came in behind the Acura MDX and the Toyota Highlander and Highlander Hybrid. Flex came in at No.4 followed by the CX-9 at No.5. The two were followed by GM’s two Lambda crossovers, the GMC Acadia and Saturn Outlook.


The new redesigned Honda Pilot, once a top rated SUV in the category, fell to No. 11.
Click through to see the top 10 list.

1. Toyota Highlander Hybrid
2. Toyota Highlander
3. Acura MDX
4. Ford Flex
5. Mazda CX-9
6. GMC Acadia
7. Saturn Outlook
8. Hyundai Veracruz
9. Buick Enclave
10. Ford Taurus X

Consumer Reports really sucks when it comes to reviewing cars...

ha ha. I'm sure Ford loves that they called their category-defying crossover an SUV.

I love my wife's 2007 MDX Sport.... it's just as much the do-everything car as my outback, but much more comfortable!

My tops are the CX9 and the Highlander. I don't get the Flex and the new Pilot front end really messed up what I thought was a well done CUV. The MX is probably my favorite, but beyond what I'm willing to pay.

Exactly! Everyone knows CR is only accurate when they say something good about Subaru.
