Good review...but why, oh why, are the brakes on this thing so much better than on the Edge? And why is it virtually the same weight as the Edge when the CX-9 is so much (14 inches) bigger?

I guess its the perenial problem of Domestics.. they always seem to miss the finer points of car building

Ford has got to dump these Continental tires, they're really horrible.

People at BOF think it's the tires that caused the long distance braking in the Edge.

Are they too heavy or what? Did ford go with continentals after the Firestone tragedy?
