So, as the title states, I can't decide what to test drive tomorrow, so I need your help! I would like to do an SUV since I haven't driven many yet.

A little background I guess would help. I have had a year-long internship with a local paper in central Ohio and I write the weekly auto column. I need something to test drive this week since the two cars I was suppose to drive are not available at the dealerships around here.


  • 1. Ford Edge (if I can find one)
    2. Chrysler Aspen
    3. Lincoln Navigator
Let me know what you think or other suggestions.

I don't think the edge is at the dealerships yet till mid December. I would defiantly recommend driving one if you can find one from all the articles I have read.

How about waiting for the Mazda CX-9? It's the Ford Edge platform, with a 3rd row, and it's upscale from the Ford, of course. If you can't wait, the Mazda CX-7 is pretty nice, esspecially the interior.

so how was it? I drove one (i drive most cars cause I valet on weekends), but I couldn't tell it was on and tried to start it 3 or 4 times before the ... oh S*** its on already

It was really nice. The damn car is so quiet I could barely tell when the gas engine was running let alone running on the electric motors. Funny you mention the valet thing. For 07, they put a tag on the keyring explaining how not to keep starting it since it's a hybrid. I guess they were having problems with overstarting. :lol:
