Bought this car used from a local dealer with about 15k miles on the odometer. I had a Mazda3 sedan as a rental and really liked the way it drove. Then when I felt the turbo power of the CX-7 I was hooked. This little crossover does everything well. It has ample room for my 2 kids and can fit bikes or camping gear in the back. Best of all the CX-7 has zoom zoom. It is quick, rides and handles well, and gets about 22-24 MPG which is not bad for an SUV.
I really have enjoyed having this Mazda CX-7. It handles nicely. It has good pick up and speed. It is pretty good on gas. Usually only have to fill up once a week that is with commuting from one city to another if I live in town it would probably last even longer. One thing I don't like, it requires the highest level of gas (93 octane). Overall it is a great vehicle.
Sporty CUV for Family.
Pros: sporty style and handling.
Cons: cost to update navigation system.Lots of fun to drive with plenty of safety features. Plenty of room for you and the little ones. Enjoy the looks and enjoy the drive. Gas milage is reasonable, 23-25 mpg hwy.

Pros: engine response: Excellent
Cons: Black interior very hard to keep cleanThe CX-7 has been an excellent choice. Love the sporty style. The turbo charged 4 cyl. is more than adequate. Over all gas milage on long trips has been as high as 25mpg. Had two recalls, but no problems with my vehicle. Lots of very neat features, no key starts, compass Auto-Dimming Mirror with Homelink.
Zoom Zoom for the CX-7
Cons: Bad rear visabilityThis is a peppy little SUV. Sorta on the small side but it is after all considered a crossover. But the CX-7 has a lot of personality. We got a black model and it is a great vehicle. Good power, reliable, lots of ammenities, and the list goes on. Totally happy with this ride!
Cool-Comfortable-Fast if Necessary
Pros: Exterior Look
Cons: Gas MileageEven though gas mileage is bad I am satisfied with CX-7. Looks cool, runs well, comfortable and fast if necessary.
Pros: Bose Stereo
Cons: Cheap carpet.Loved my Mazda 3 so I bought a CX-7. Really like it, don't love it. If fuel economy were better, I would like it better. However, when I look at other cars, for the price, it was a good value and won't trade at this time.
