2008 Mazda CX-7 Touring 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
Enjoyable to drive. We keep meticulous records and do mostly hwy, around 26mph but down to 16 in the city. Poor rear visibility. Paint is very fragile; hairlike scratches seem to appear spontaneously and are now everywhere (even when we've never taken the car to a cloth wash, only touchless). Interior floor covering is very thin and frail. Windshield washer tank is too small for a Michigan winter 50m commute. One year left on a 3-yr lease. Wont keep the car bc it will require too much attention. It did handle 2 winters and a couple of storms safely. Traction control works very well. Like most new cars, factory installed tires don't last long. 25K on this car will be max.
Torque. Standard stereo is impressive. Leather is above standard.
Paint is thin and frail. Hairlike scratches are everywhere. Interior flooring also thin, frail, retains dirt like velcro.
