Spent a lot of time reading reviews before purchase. This thing is flat out fun to drive. It may not be a sports car or be the fastest thing on the road but the 2.5 motor WILL get out of its own way. There is plenty of get up and go for my liking. The ride is a little stiff, but that's a nice trade off for how well this thing handles in the corners :) There is very little body roll. The gas mileage is decent, 23-24 so far with my average driving and better on the highway. The seats are little hard but more I sit in it, the more I like it. And the CX-7 is got great curb appeal. Nicest vehicle I've owned yet, and I've owned a few.
Handling & performance, gas mileage display, looks, price - you get a lot of vehicle for the money :)
Wish it had automatic headlights/daytime running lights. There is no audible warning if I forget and leave the lights on.
