2008 Mazda CX-7 Grand Touring 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
Have owned the vehicle 18 months. Replaced the factor tires at 12K miles, and the AC compressor at 26K. Both very unacceptable, (AC was covered by warranty.) With that said, this vehicle represents the most car for the money in its segment. I have a Grand Touring with Navigation and paid less than 29K. Try and find anything for that price that drives like this car. It has plenty of room, drives and looks great, and it get's around 20 mpg. My lease ends this November and I will most likely buy this CX7 at lease end. If you drive this car, and compare it to it to other SUV's, you will buy it. Compare this to an Acura MDX and you will have an extra $10K to buy a few extra set of tires.
Car great at highway speeds. Has great stereo, navigation, heated seats, HID headlights and sunroof. Looks awesome.
Low end acceleration could be better. Original Equipment tires should last longer.
