Hi,
Few of my cousins would be visiting me for 4th of july and i was wondering instead of going around in 2 cars if I could rent a 9 seater here in pittsburgh area.

I've searched around and see that most location carry a 12 seater van. Ford, GMC advertise their SUV's as 9 seater but when I look up in the rental car websites it shows the same vehicles as 8 seater.

Has anyone rented a 9 seater before? Please post if you've rented one before or the locattion which carries these vehicles.

Thanks

The only thing that seats 9 is a passenger van like the 12-15 passenger van you mentioned. Even a Yukon XL or Suburban, the GM SUVs in question, only seat 8. Maybe you can still order one with a front bench, hence the 9 number you have found, but the only way you get 9 is with someone in the FRONT center front plus 3 people in each of the other two rows. Jam packed, not fun. And the rental companies don't get them configured that with the front bench, that's why they say only 8 passenger.

It's almost always cheaper to rent two cars than any SUV or van. But if you really want to get everyone in one vehicle, you'll have to get the big passenger van. I've driven one of those a few times. It's a bit unwieldy but not too bad.

Greg,
Thanks so much for the post.

The 12-15 seater van you mentioned cost me around 1200 for the week and you definitely sound right in renting 2 cars.
I might end up doing that.

Thanks for your post. wohoo, i just noticed you are the forums most informative poster (winner). Thats awesome.
I'll post if I find any 9/9+ rentals around here

Thanks
