I live in Michigan and needless to say we have had a pretty harsh winter, but luckily I haven't had to deal with getting stuck in the snow or worrying about weather at all while driving my car. It's plowed through 6-12 inch snow drifts without a problem. The traction control and AWD work great. It's pretty roomy and its a good crossover vehicle for someone like myself who doesn't want something too big.

CX7 is just what i expected....a sporty suv...drives like a sedan more than an SUV.
Now if you are looking for a fuel efficient SUV, you won't find in CX7. You have to be able to live with 17-19 MPG city driving.
2008 Mazda CX-7i hate my car - tampa08/30/2010
In a nutshell..... I HATE THIS CAR! I bought this car about 6 weeks ago and it's the worst decision I've made. I wish I could return it. It is loud and I can feel everything south of a pebble. Someone must have removed the insulation in the car because it sounds like I am driving an 8 wheeler. I have to turn the radio up and scream on the cell while driving. The air conditioner is inadequate and takes a long time to cool. Did I mention that I HATE THIS CAR?!
