    SUV Question

    Ok, so the time has come for my g/f to buy a car and she has somewhat narrowed it down to 2 choices.

    Does anyone here have, have had or know anyone who has had a:

    Nissan Murano

    Or

    Mazda CX7 or CX9

    Thanks for any input you may give....

    Any technical requirements, like towing, or cargo hauling?

    Is rear seat room important?

    If it comes with a v6 it has 265hp and CVT (continuous variable trans) thats cheap hp and would pull the skis great. On the other hand I think that there are a few blind spots that are bigger than im used to in the back. my .02

    My brother has the Mazda CX7 and absolutely hates it, always at the dealer with problems.

    Can you elborate on these problems???

    If it is fit and finish, then I really dont care but if it is mechanical related than I really would like to know.


    I have a full size GMC pickup crewcab so we tow with that and haul anything big..

    We would be putting ourselves and our 2 bassett hounds in it...

    The Murano comes with the same engine as the Infiniti G35 so we know the engine is good but it seems like the Mazda has more interior room..


    We have until July to make our decision so we have some time yet..

    Thanks again for the input!!!

    My sister has a Cx-7 and has had nothing but trouble. The turbo was leaking oil on the exhaust causing tons of white smoke, after 3 trips to the dealer and they kept saying it was oil from a oil change a month ago. I told her to have them look at the turbo (I work on eighteen wheelers) and they wouldn't listen. Finally, 5th time there they replaced the turbo. Idiots and a lousy car, engine noise is bad, thank goodness its a lease. I would look at toyota, they are making deals right now!

    I'll give him a call and ask, but I don't think it was fit and finish issues.
