Mazda CX-7 2011 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Mazda CX-7 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Nearly new SUVs suitable for families?
I would rule out the CX-7 on the basis of poor fuel consumption, the performance of the iX35 petrol version is a little lacking, the Tucson is a better car, but I would suggest the X-Trail is probably your best bet.
Best used 7 seat SUVs under $30k?
Sludge build-up is a turbocharger killer, but sludge won't build up if the car is regularly serviced and the oil is changed so it's always fresh. The problem is usually only with cars that haven't been serviced. Other seven-seaters you could look at are the Kia Sorrento, Hyundai Santa Fe, or Toyota Kluger.
Mazda CX-7 fuel consumption
Straight back to your dealer is where. But before you do get your facts straight and run a fuel consumption test so you know exactly what the consumption is. Now, the specs you quote are I'm guessing the official figures, if they are they not real life figures, but the results of a laboratory test done under strict conditions. You won't necessarily get the same consumption, but you should be able to get somewhere close. Based on the figures you have supplied you're not, so you have grounds to complain and ask the dealer to check the car over, even run a consumption test himself.
