Overall very nice SUV

2008 Mazda CX-7 Grand Touring 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
Bought a demo in February '08 and it is a very nice SUV. Handles like a sports car and has nice acceleration but does ride a bit stiff. Test drove the CRV, Highlander, RAV4 and Acadia before settling on the Mazda. Fuel mileage is OK if you don't step on it too much but that's difficult because it's really fun to drive!
Bose stereo and moonroof are a great package. Dash gauges have a nice look especially at night. Exterior styling is as good as any SUV out there. Black "piano leather" very sharp but tought to keep clean. Xenon headlights really increase your night vision.
Carpet is nothing more than high grade felt. Moonroof eats a few inches of headroom so it may be tight if you're tall. Seats should be a couple inches longer to offer more thigh support.
