Very good vehicle

This vehicle has accompanied me for years with very good performance; providing comfort to me and my family in day-to-day travel and pleasure trips; backed by an excellent "Traywick's Garage" service.

My mazda CX7

Good running car and has been very dependable despite being 10 years old. Bought at auction replaced turbocharger which was broken upon purchase. I’ve had few problems since. Nice driving car with plenty of get up and go.

Mixed Bag!

The CX7 series from Mazda looked great in the showroom. Ours with the turbo is fast to boot. It can be fun to drive and my wife loves the way it looks. However, repairing this vehicle is truly awful. A headlamp bulb change can easily turn into a $250.00 disaster even if you do it yourself. If you're so fortunate as not to break anything while doing the job, you still need to take the whole plastic front end off of the car to change a headlight or turn signal bulb. The number of little cheap plastic clips and fasteners will astound you in addition to the myriad screws involved. Don't attempt to go in from the wheel well to repair your headlamp bulb as seen in many Youtube videos. This "easy path" can cost you plenty if you break the delicate little retainer housing for the headlamp bulb. The stupid supposedly "environmentally-conscious" paper oil filter element is a royal pain and makes a horrible garage mess requiring a ton of clean up rags every time you change the oil and filter. So much for being earth-friendly. Why couldn't they have designed the car with a regular canister oil filter? The engineers at Mazda responsible for these botched designs should all be fired immediately. Other quirks: the headlamps seem cut off in their light output somehow- things look dim out front on low beam setting, the overall handling of the car is not stellar (seems to sway on turns IMO), I replaced the CD player 3 times (it's trash), this car doesn't handle snow well at all, The console juts into my right leg when I drive it. Until I hear about Mazda changing their act, I think I'll go with another brand next time around.

Mazda CX-7; I wish they still made them!

I am almost to my 8th year with my CX-7 and honestly, I could not have asked for a better car. Admittedly, I take very good care of my cars, but even so, it has been very reliable and low-cost to maintain. There was a recall issue involving the timing chain, but that was cleared up. As a fluke, it happened a second time, but that was handled by them as well despite being past my 70,000 mile warrantee. The Mazda CX-7 has been the perfect car. There is nothing like it on snow and ice. It is a heavy vehicle (one of the reasons I chose it) and it's AWD is superb. It also has tremendous pick-up and pep. See a hole in the line of traffic ahead, and you are there in an instant. We have been able to take as many as four adults and all our gear for 4 or 5 day get-aways to the coast and everyone was comfortable. The only downside of the car is the mileage is not stellar. I average 19 mpg with mixed driving, but I do tend to have a heavy foot. My current odometer reads nearly 92,000 miles and I am hoping it will last me to 200,000. The longer I have it, the more I love this car. If they still made them, I would buy another. The CX-9 is too big for my needs, and the CX-5 may be too small, but I will visit it when that time comes. I always liken the Mazda line to RC Cola. When you think of cola, you think of Coke and Pepsi. But when you have an RC Cola, you think, "Gee, this is great! Who knew?" When you think of Japanese cars, you think of Toyota and Honda. But Mazda's are just as good, just as dependable, and helluva lot more fun to drive. Zoom Zoom, indeed.
