After 2 years, I still feel excited with the possibility of driving it on open roads. Try it on 8 hour-long journeys like we do and you will love it. The face of some "muscle" car drivers when we just wave them "good- bye" is a poem! Bose sound is for pros.
Acceleration, even fully loaded with our 4-bike 2" hitch rack; passenger and cargo space. Exterior design is still look-drawing now that Mazda released their new 6 (that resembles both CX-7 & 9)
Possible built issue: there is a squeaky noise under driver's seat. Sterling wheel sound controls could include a shifting CD feature
