2008 Mazda CX-7 Touring 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
Love how the car stands out - it's different than what everyone has. Really appreciate Mazda's design innovation. I considered myself a big advocate for the brand, however this will be my last...the past two Mazda's have required a tire replacement much to early. Two tires on my CX-7 (Touring model) are considered "dangerous" and two "suggested replacements". So at 20,000 miles, I'm paying over $900 for four new tires. Mazda will not take any responsibility even though they make the decision to use that tire. I have never had this issue with any vehicle - other than my two Mazdas. So if you go this route - make sure to bake in extra costs for this issue.
Exterior / Interior style.
Gas mileage leaves something to be desired, and as mentioned above, the tire "life" has made me extremely dissatisfied.
