2008 Mazda CX-7 Sport 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
I don't get physically beat up on trips. Handles like a sports car. The ride is a little firm but seats are comfortable. Took a trip from Detroit to Clarion, Pa with air on and cruise set at 72 mph. City mpg 19.9 and Hwy 23.9 a pleasant surprise. The ipod inte kit works fine although most people will not like its featureless design to opearate. I just make my playlists and listen to the music. No text is visible.
AWS and turning radius, the handling and the mpg. The ease of use of the liftgate mechanism. A push of a finger.
The sport steering wheel is too slippery, some mised colors other than 99% read in the lit dash. When using sun glasses the tunneling effect of the dash is difficult to see. Work around is to turn on the parking lights.
