Absolutely! BUT.. the sloping roofline has proven to be a real problem with some items. Most recently I picked up a fully assembled rocking patio bench (seats 2). The lady had it in her Gen2 Ford Escape. There was so much room in there with the 2nd row folded down! I would have been able to fit it in the CX-9 no problem if I didn't have carseats in the 2nd row, but I do, so I had to do some massaging to get the bench to fit, and it was a VERY tight squeeze, but I got it done.
Well, comparing space with the 2nd row up and to a car with the 2nd row down isn’t really fair. . But the roofline sloping and the low ceiling does limit space useability. It is definitely a longer space than the an escape. I find the cx-9 with the 2nd row folded is great for long items, but not so much for tall stuff. I saw your other post about “what can you fit in”. I am moving this summer as well, i will try and post if i have anything interesting in there.
Congrats on your new place! Hope you enjoy it.
Not sure if this is what happened with sm1ke, but to answer 7eregrine, home inspection are also recommended in Canada, but not mandatory by law. The real estate market has been so crazy the last few years ( too many buyers, not enough sellers), that sales often result in bidding wars where an equivalent offer without the condition of an home inspection will often win the bid. (It is less risk to the seller).
It is becoming a problem, and the government is considering making it mandatory by law.
