    Default Honda Jazz/Fit

    With gas prices on the rise, subcompact cars are our choice. We specifically have a manual Honda Jazz/Fit to help us with gas costs. Not only is it great with fuel efficiency, it also is great with safety as Honda has this G-Force technology that helps absorb the impact energy on collision while protecting the passengers inside.

    Honda Jazz/Fit is the car of the future!

    I'm currently waiting for a tow truck for my crappy 2008 Holden Viva. I will be upgrading to Rav4 very soon, I would imagine. Definitely before the baby's born and also before the crap becomes even more worthless and we get zip for the trade-in!

    We've just upgraded from my tiny little corolla sedan to a mitsubishi ASX. I will have plenty of room for 3 seats should I need it in the future. Also lots of room for shopping and the pram. We will also be getting a Prado in about 5 years for family road trips 4WDing & camping etc.

    Living in the northwest wa we pay even more than anywhere else, price of petrol is about 20-30 cents more than city prices. It's absurd but nothing we can do about it unfortunately. I have a 6 cylinder xr6 and dh has v8 deisel landcruiser. We can't really downgrade, we do a lot of travelling with 2 kids so need the room.

    Are there anchor points in the third row of the cx-9?

    Oh forgot to mention due to lifestyle such as towing the boat, towing camper, fishing, going bush and 4wding are other reasons we can't downgrade.
    And we recently upgraded to a 7 seater Honda odessey for extra space.

    I have a mitsubishi pajero 7 seater!!
    Is a heavy car and goes through $90 of fuel before the week is out!!
    4th bub was born 10 days ago and have discovered that its not that great with space! The Dickie seats in the back take up most of the boot space so next to no room for pram and shopping!
    We are considering selling and getting a mini bus like a Kia carnival

    Which is why we bought a Territory. On a few other points I would have preferred the CX-9, but we needed more anchors.

    I believe you can have them installed, however I was told we would have to install a bar in the boot to do so.

    We were days away from picking up our new territory and I've decided to go with the CX-9 instead..! I couldn't face the thought of not having the 3rd row split folding... I wanted diesel but gave that up for space.

    How do arrange 4 car seats in the Mazda CX-9?? How can the anchored seats slide forward to allow access to the back if they are tethered in with the seat belt..?
    I will have 2 FF car seats and boosters.
