So far I like it
By wilmeland on
2010 Mazda CX-7 i SV 4dr SUV (2.5L 4cyl 5A)
Have only owned this vehicle a little more than a month. Initially was a little concerned that it might be a little underpowered, but that is not the case. Transmission and engine combination seem to get the most in terms of performance and MPG. Handles nicely. Only concern may be the stock tires. They ride ok & no issues so far, but when I replace, would probably look at something with a little wider foot print. Interior nicely laid out and comfortable for up to 4 adults. Stock stereo is decent with a little reduction in bass and treble settings. Back seat legroom is the only area where it's a little tight, but acceptable. All in all, fun to drive and a lot of bang for the buck.
Nice road feel and handling for a vehicle that sits high. Much better than our Highlander.
Stock tire selection - possibly change to 225 or 235-65 series.
Update to review: Still impressed with vehicle after 6 months. Very tight and fun to drive, but comfortable at same time. Mileage has been good. Combined around town is 24 + and on a couple of highway trips that were about 150 miles on flat terrain it was getting 29-30 (at about 72 mph). At 80 mph, the mpg drops to about 25, but I shouldn't be going that fast anyway. It's just comfortable at all speeds, so easy to get carried away.
