2007 Mazda CX-7 SUV Sport 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

I love this car. It is so much more than I expected it to be. It handles very nicely, easy to drive and it looks great. I have had no problems with it, it is very reliable and I love the features. I love the style, the closest to the Lexus SUV, that I could afford, and I am so glad I got this.


Best Features

Looks, style, handling. Lots of storage space in the rear, and I love the split seats. I have the cargo net and it works great with groceries.


Worst Features

Lighted vanity, better radio, regular fuel.

Review

After having narrowed the choices to an Acura RDX or a Mazda CX-7, I am very pleased to say that after 6 months and 23k miles, the CX-7 was definitely the choice for me. With its more agressive and sleek exterior design, partnered with a handsome and roomy interior, the CX-7 definitely has the aesthetic advantage to every other crossovers in its class. The turbo-charged engine provides excellent acceleration, with no problems passing on the highway. The agile handling and precise braking on the most curvaceous suburban roads make for an excellent and fun drive, almost making you forget you're driving a crossover.


Best Features

Interior design (especially on the GT trim) is stylish, and the controls are well laid-out and simple. There are no abundance of buttons and gadgets that complicate the center cosole, making it very easy to use. Bose sound system great. Handling and acceleration is top notch.


Worst Features

The little features found on luxury cars, like auto locking doors when the engine is started, along with cornering headlights would be nice. An auxiliary input for iPod and MP3 players.

Review

The CX7 is a blast to drive, when it is running at least, but the driving experience can blind you to a cheap interior, a technology package that is woefully deficient, and a general feeling that the vehicle is not built with the quality it should be. Most of all, after 4 CEL problems and multiple experiences when the vehicle simply does not run, I believe the CX7 has some real engineering deficiencies. Run, don't walk, away from the Mazda dealership and do not get sucked in by the initial driving enjoyment. You are likely to face real problems down the road.


Best Features

Driving experience (when it runs) Exterior appearance


Worst Features

An engine that works Better interior Technology package that allows full use of technology (such as bluetooth, and mp3 connectivity)

Review

The mainstay of this car is how it handles and stops. It drives like more of a car than any of the competitors in this segment. If you are looking for something a little more roomy than car but dread the blah design of some cross overs or mini-vans, this is a great alternative. The turbo is responsive and acceleration is swift, but could be better. Upshifts under full throttle hold on a little too long past the powerband. If you have a heavy foot, you will pay at the pump. Driving this car in a fun manner will push mileage down close to 15 MPG. If you drive normal, however, the stated 18 MPG in the city is realistic. On the highway, it has returned about 23 MPG.


Best Features

The Bose stereo is great. I opted out of the tech package so that I could integrate and iPod cradle and video feed for LCDs in the headrest. No need for DVDs! The interior build is great, the trunk is spacious, and it definitely has the heart of a sport car.


Worst Features

Acceleration performance could be better with a simple tune. Rear seats can be little tight for tall people. The rear bumper guard should be standard to avoid scratches putting things in and out of the hatch. Need a bluetooth option. How about a light on the vanity mirrors?

Love the car but afraid of reliability. Been in shop 9 times so far for air pres. lights, check engine lights, power window problem, transmission computer problem. 3 gas caps, new gas tank filler line. Irregular tire wear due to misalignment. Just had 30000 mile check done. All seems well for now.
