2008 Mazda CX-7 Grand Touring 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
Have had the CX-7 for over 1.5 years and love it. We had to have some recall work done once. All the rest is simple maintainence. Gas mileage has been improving, we are getting closer to 18.5 in town now, as high as 25 mpg on the hwy. Mostly 22-23 mpg. Tubo lag is slight but you get use to the peddle and know how to activate it smoothly. It is a blast to drive on open roads. The brakes are great especially for emergency stops in town. We are retired now and don't travel quite as much, but we do use it on long trips. We have the FWD GT with navigation, sirius, everything you could get but DVD screen.
The CX-7 is so much fun to drive. It handles like a sports car yet carries a lot of stuff including people. Love to drive at night, lighting inside is cool, blue and red glow.
Wish we could use 89 octane instead of 93 octane, gas is over $3.50 per gallon. At least the hwy mileage is good 22-25 mpg.
