"The best crossover for the money" by Firefighter from Hinesville, Ga. on 01/19/2012. Trim: 2010 Mazda CX-7 s Grand Touring, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Love the stylish looks. Owned a used Mitsubishi SUV and hated it. The Mazda CX-7 is very comfortable and has a smooth ride. Love the features on the dash and the radio controls are on the steering wheel making it easier to control the radio. Excellent gas mileage. Front seating is very roomy and comfortable.
Cons: Need more pick-up speed when merging into traffic. Outside noise control could be better. More leg room for the rear seating.
Overall review: Overall this is one of the best vehicles i have owned. I driven/owned vehciles from an Infiniti I-30, Pontiac Grand Prix, Dodge Dakota pick-up(hated it) Dodge Intrepid (hated it) too many problems with both of these vehicles. Will never buy another dodge of any model.

Not so much "Zoom... Zoom" by Pat on 02/16/2013. Trim: 2010 Mazda CX-7 i SV, Owned 2 years.
Pros: Like the looks
Cons: The 2.5L is doggy and loud. Stock tires look like something off a Geo Tracker, Quality is horrid.
Overall review: First impressions of this vehicle were good, I liked the looks, and some of the features. I've owned this car for a little over a year, and it feels more like a 10 year old car with all the sqeeks & rattles. Very poor build, has been in the shop often.

Hope Yours Doesn't Need Repair by Disappointed on 11/14/2013. Trim: 2010 Mazda CX-7 i Sport, Owned 4 years.
Pros: Nice to drive, looks good.
Cons: Quality. Driver's door developed small rips, Mazda didn't cover even under warranty, dealership accused me of tearing it with a knife. I must have a sharp elbow. Headlamps blew out. Tires wore out at 35,000 miles. dealership would sell me 2 at $550. I bought 4 comparable tire for $480. Brakes wore out at 30,000 miles, too.Transmission was completely gone at 61,000 miles needs to be replaced. Extremely hard to find a transmission as there were 3 types made for this model in 2010. Was told Mazda knew it was bad and still used it until it was fine tuned. Cost so far is $3200 from independent mechanic or $4000 from dealer. Still not fixed after 3 weeks(hard time getting parts).
Overall review: I would not recommend this auto to anyone. Mazda has parts and most repairs wrapped up so you need to go to the dealership. Also, quite expensive for parts and repairs. Not worth the trouble to have it. Should have bought American.

No Issues for 75,000 miles by Tom from Tustin, CA on 09/10/2013. Trim: 2010 Mazda CX-7 i SV, Owned 3 years.
Pros: 75,000 miles - only repairs were (2) headlamps. Everything else has been great! Tires lasted 60,000 mi. I've changed oil @ 5,000 mi & had all fluids replaced @ 60,000mi.
Cons: Drivers seat headrest not suited for a tall person (I'm 6'6"). The transmission is starting to slip/jump when putting into gear. Tires are unique, hard to find & expensive - had to go through dealer. Too difficult to replace headlamps - had to take to dealer.
Overall review: Amazing longevity & performance for the price!

Nice to look at pretty to own. Once the waranty gone be ready . by Done driving it from Bristol tn on 02/03/2013. Trim: 2010 Mazda CX-7 s Touring, Owned 3 years.
Pros: Had my cx7 for over 2 years now it was a fun car to drive for short trips, and to and from work. Handling was good. 2.5 l engine was stout for its size.
Cons: Was very displeased with the quality. One month after purchasing my cx7 the rotars cracked coming down a mountaian road almost putting me into a gaurdrail. At around 27000 miles i was highly encouraged to flush my transmission because the fluid had already darkened and appeared to be sediment present. Also in last year and a half I had to have three headlights replaced. and a rear cargo hatch light replaced. And only one size tire for this vehicle and if your lucky you will get 20000 miles on them for there 1000 dollar tires. Granted majority of repairs were under waranty. But when the waranty goes out. you will be stuck with bill.
Overall review: Fun car to drive beutiful to look at. But i wasnt going to tempt fate with this vehicle. At 33000 thousand miles and this many repairs. I would rather take my chances on another vehicle before the waranty runs out and your stuck with frequent repairs.
