The size of it and it is a quiet vehicle so the ride is good.

The car has been reliable but has had break work, ignition switch, wipers replaced, and other common things such as regular oil changes, transmission flushing. I was traveling and it stopped and I had to only replace the battery which was good. The check engine light came on about a month ago and it was slowing down but I was near a shop and found out it was something that had been recalled so they filled it at no charge and it took about a day for me to get it back but after that it was good. The size of this vehicle is perfect because I have to take my grandson places and he can have his friends in the car too.

Mazda cx-7: nice family vehicle.

I love that my Mazda cx-7 has plenty of room and trunk space. It fits three car seats in the backseat, gets good gas mileage, drives well, and looks great. I have not had any major problems with it and I am reaching 140, 000 miles. The only complaints I have about my cx-7 is the air conditioning takes awhile to cool down the car in the summer months. I believe it is due to a smaller engine than other SUVs. Also there are not air vents in the back, which I would like to have since I have small children riding back there. The battery seems to need replacing more often as well. Overall, I really like my Mazda cx-7.

Mazda cx-7. Safety, comfort and speed. . .

The Mazda cx-7 has been a great vehicle all in all. It is comfortable and with leather seats, both driver and passenger side offer heated seating. Our 6 cylinder engine has a turbo drive which makes it a lot easier to get up and go. The rear camera is visible from nearly every seat, but especially the driver seat. Located on an approx. 4x5 inch screen in the center of the dash it has come in handy quite often. The camera eye is located on the hatchback.
