Pros No longer have to use Premium Gas in this one
No more squeeks and a smoother ride.
Better gas mileage.
Cons The initial acceleration is not a quick, but it only took a minute for me to get adjusted, especially for the gas mileage increase.
I miss my one-touch passenger side window button and my one-touch moonroof/sunroof features.
Summary I came from a 2007 Mazda CX-7 Touring, w/Turbo engine. Yes I enjoyed the speed I was able to achieve from the 2007, but I didn't enjoy the engine noise that, I was told that that engine would make no matter what type of gas I put in it. I didn't like the gas mileage I was receiving either. I really liked my 18" wheels on the 2007, but to be quite honest after only a week I realize that the ride in the 2011 is acutally better. I don't know what sound system CNET is listening to, but I am totally enjoying this system...I love this vehicle and the Grand has a navigation system, big deal, if you are like most you a GPS or it's on your telephone.....Why pay more money for that. So take it from an actual owmer of a 2007 & 2011 CX-7, this is a great car for the money. I also like the full maintenance you receive for the first 3 years of owning your vehicle.
Pros Tight, quiet, confortable, safe, convenient
Cons lack of nav available w/o turbo
Summary Focus on build quality, lack of squeaks, overall trim level, feel if the materials used, convenience while driving to be able to use those options, road noise, etc... dont dwell on what she doesn't have, dwell on the positives and mention the negatives.
FANTASTIC car as compared to Japanese counterparts.
Pros Blue Zenon lights, curves & lines
Cons The small naviation screen
Pros Another worhless review.
Cons Yes folks another worthless review.
Summary This is what I just LOVE about CNET- they take a family vehicle, a station wagon for all intents and purposes, and label it as a "sports car." And no USB?? MY GOO, SEND IT TO THE CRUSHER! This is the same mentality that gives cars like the Miata mx-5 a "poor" rating because it lacks 10 dashboard screens but loves a dumb fat pelican like the Lincoln MX X because it has so many nice lights and buttons to play with! Whoooooppie! It's "TECH!"
This isn't automotive journalism. Someone needs to either fix this part of the site or just can it.
