2007 Mazda CX-7 Grand Touring 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

2 recalls in 1st week of ownership, car totally unprepared for release requiring 2 return trips to dealer. Harsh ride, too noisy to enjoy Bose sound system, new front calipers within 1000 miles, uneven acceleration, not recommended for long trips. driver windshield wiper leaves large amounts of water on passenger side due to uncoordinated wiper movements.


Best Features

exterior looks, sound system,interior roominess


Worst Features

heavy interior sound deadening, less eratic acceleration and torque steer, coordinate front wiper blades to clear windshield of water properly.

2007 Mazda CX-7 Touring 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

I find myself begging the wife for the driver seat every time we get in the car. The responsive handling is what I like the most compared to the sluggish Toyota we had before. The Tiptronics feels and acts kinda like a BMW, firm and in control. Cornering is especially reassuring. I hardly need to press brakes on curvy mountain roads. The build interior and exterior feels solid.


Best Features

dynamically-adjusted steering force, quick braking, futuristic styling, seat belt reminder, great stock speakers


Worst Features

It'd be nice to have memory driver seats. better leather in the touring model, more gadgets like a digital trip computer.

Review

Compared the Ford Edge, FX35, decided to go with an unknown being this is my first Mazda. Had for 10 months and 12,000 miles. Like the seats, interior, brakes, tranny, navi and sound system. Just the right size too. But still can't get used to the 4 cyl turbo and lag. Engine is very noisy when cold. Really miss a silky smooth V6 and this ain't it. Mileage avg only 20. Lots of corners cut on int & ext plastic. No trip computer - surprised for a GT. You call that carpet on the inside, looks more like spray on. Overall pleased and would recommend.


Best Features

Interior size is just right. Comfy for a guy 6'3". Navi and sound system. Suspension is nice and firm - I like that. Tight steering and brakes. The fold down back seats work well.


Worst Features

We all know about the gas mileage. Wish a V6 was avail. Less plastic and real wood.

Review

Our CX-7 Goes to the Ozarks - October, 2007 Our first vacation in more than eighteen months was also our first significant road trip in the CX-7. We were both curious as to how the little XUV would serve as a constant companion for a week. I won’t belabor the point, but the comfort, performance, handling and utility of our baby was remarkable! She proved to be the best travel vehicle we’ve ever owned. This was a seven-day trip that took us from the flat Red River Delta of Northwest Louisiana to the magnificent Ozark Mountains of Northern Arkansas. We encountered rain, high winds and extreme temperature swings.Through it all, CX-7 Sport never failed. Never.


Best Features

Zoom-Zoom power and sports handling. Fantastic stopping power (4-vented pays off). Bose premium sound. Quick-release rear seats. Power driver's seat. Intuitive driver controls. Ease of loading. Overall cutting-edge design. Gets admiring glances (and stares).


Worst Features

Provide fully adjustable front passenger seat. Remedy A-pillar blind spot (without totally re-designing the vehicle, please). Provide additional cubby storage (somewhere).
