Why the Mazda CX-7?
Exterior styling: I love the way the car looks. good flowing lines, muscular facia and bulged fenders.
Fuel economy: bad fuel economy, I guess thats why 2006-2008 models do have a trip computer but the trip computer was not able. 2009 to present all have same trip computer that provides MPG,distance to empty and somewhat of an improved gas mileage.
Brand reputation & image: Shame on Mazda for making cars that show consistent lack of quality. My car has a trip computer that is not operable on year 2008. My brother has same car in 2009 and his car has trip computer that actually was activated to work unlike my car.
Dealership practices: Overpriced dealers and very few dealer network. Good product and now the cx7 will be discontinued only after 6 years in the making.??? no concern for long term customers as they did not offer a buy back or upgrade program for existing owners
Driving position & visibility: excellent visibility/ high position. Love the raked windshield. Seat is very comfortable but it could be more snug to avoid body roll.
