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


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)

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


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?

Review

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.

Review

I've never been a Mazda fan until I purchased my CX 7 grand touring. I purchased it with 3171 miles and practically it is new. CX 7 has a very nice design inside and outside with a lot of options easy to use and also very good steering and brakes. You won't realize how fast it jumps to 80mph. Fun to drive.


Best Features

I love Bose system with 6 CD changer in dash and the climate control. Also in the dark the highway it is very well illuminated thanks to the xenon lights.


Worst Features

I miss the green solar protective line on the top of the windshield. If it is a sunny day and your headlights are on you can see almost nothing on the dash. A little noisy till you reach 70 mph
