2008 Mazda CX-7 Sport 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
Sleek. Fast. Comfortable. I got a great price on this. CX-7 was not a vehicle I was looking for, but stumbled upon. It drives so smooth I end up over 80mph before I know it. At least, smoother than the Jeep Liberty I traded in for this. You cannot believe how much power the engine has until your drive it. Interior functionality is much better than the Liberty. Wish it had a better stereo (4 speakers, distorts when loud). Still waiting to see the real gas mileage. Massive dashboard and front window takes some getting used to.
The engine has serious pickup. It looks fabulous, and makes a Ford Edge look like a brick. Very comfortable interior. Did I say the engine rocks yet?
Better base stereo system. Less hard plastic on the doors and dashboard.
