2011 Mazda CX-7 i Sport 4dr SUV (2.5L 4cyl 5A)


Wife wanted a new ride and liked the styling of the cx7. Felt like the price was good for the amount of car we were getting. Liked the fact that it is totally built in Japan ( the Japanese are known to take pride in their workmanship). Read customer reviews and was scared by all the turbo engine problems,so stayed away from it. The standard engine is not bad and avg 24 mpg with mixed city/country road driving. Drives solid but slightly bumpy. After 15,000 miles my main complaint is the transmission. I just don't like the way it hesitates to downshift after slowing down. I haven't had any problems so far. Only regret is small interior with two kids. Price to pay though for decent fuel economy

Best Features

Remote start can be added without expensive package purchase and is worth every penny. Fun to drive...handles like a sports car. Plenty of safety features standard. Sporty looks. Comfortable interior for average size folks(tall people will be cramped).Overall good visibility while driving.

Worst Features

Less engine noise. More positive feel with transmission. CVT would be nice. More passenger leg room.Overhead storage for sunglasses.
