    2008 Cx-7 Touring — Fairly good fuel economy for a crossover/SUV. Nice interior, though a little short on storage. Stereo is pretty good (Bose, cd changer). A few modern amenities are missing, but corrected in '09 model. Suffers from turbo lag from a dead stop, but makes up for it once it gets going. Nice acceleration for passing. Leather seats are quite comfortable. Not the quietest interior, but not too noisy either. Overall I give it an "A-/B+". I think I would give the '09 model a firm "A-", maybe better with Grand Touring version (navigation system, Auto climate control, etc.).

    Pros: Exterior/Interior Styling, Freeway Acceleration, Bose Stereo

    Cons: No Driver Information Display, So-so Fuel Economy, Turbo Lag

    Great To Drive — I love its handling, especially the steering (I wish my VW R32 was giving the same feeling regarding this matter). I find it confortable, enjoyable to use everyday. I am only concerned about the poor mileage (barely 18mpg, more often 16 mpg) and I don't like the exhaust and engine sound that remind metoo much of my coffee grinder, I wish it was at least sounding a bit like my MX5 (deeper exhaust note despite the small displacement 4 banger)

    Pros: Handling, accelerations, communicative steering, not a SUV behavious

    Cons: mileage, engine+exhaust sound

    Awesome Style With Alot Of Power — My one line summary just about says it all. It's a great smaller car considering I traded in my Cadilac DTS in for the CX-7. It gets great gas mileage too!

    Cons: None so far. I only have less than a thousand miles on it.

    Good Car — We have a baby and the back seat and cargo area is a bit small. Gas milage is ~17-18 around town. But I have gotten 23 on vacation after air filter change. Check engine light cause by gas cap is finicky.

    Pros: Fun to drive

    Cons: Small Storage, bad Gas Milage, requires Premium Gas
