Great car. Good fuel mileage and fun to drive.
For the price you cannot get a better handling or more fun sports car. My son's Porsche 911 is faster but has no more room in it than the MX5 and for 1/3rd the price the MX5 handles as well. Quite an improvement over the British sports cars it was designed after.
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.
Great performance for an SUV. Great legroom, even in 3rd row!
This is a SUV or CUV for people who would like to still be able to enjoy driving while needing the extra space for the family. It handles like a sports car while weighting over 4,500lbs. Gas mileage may not be the best you'll find for SUV, but averaged okay at 16~17MPG driving around town most of the time.
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.
