    avi...be cautious. Brokers are all over trying to buy CX-7's for export. This violates Mazda's dealer agreements and the sales will be rejected and future allocation gets put in jeopardy.

    Yes I've had a CX-7 on order since Nov 2005, My pre order should arrive at dealer the last week of this month.
    As of today there are still no dealers with cars in physical inventory to sell. :(

    The boats have arrived in the US filled with CX-7's.....Mazda will process them and start to ship to dealers in a week or so. They are trying to get at least one to every dealer in the initial shipments.

    Just got back from my dealer..My current Tribute lease is due back next week!!
    Anyway, no CX7's in, but on the way.. As I was with the salesman, the Mgr came over and said he just got the leasing programs in onthe CX7..........

    WTF

    He said the current lease program was for 24 mos.....3000+ down, and a monthly price around 440.00..(W/O taxes)

    YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING I said!! He said NO, that is what is currently onboard from Mazda

    Oh well, after waiting patientlt, it looks like we WILL NOT be in a CX7!!
    NO WAY I will pay those prices..

    Looks like the wife will have to settle on either :
    Mercury Mariner
    Pontiac Torrent
    Suburu Tribeca (though not really in running)

    Any thoughts on any of this...Including second choices!!

    You do not mention which level CX-7, how many miles the lease covers, what the lease-end buyout price is, or whether you are in US or Canada. At first glance, without crunching any numbers, assuming 12k miles per year for a fully loaded CX-7 in US Dollars ($32-$34k sticker) the price does not seem too out of line to me, although it does not seem especially great.

    Also remember - interest rates are up, which will affect all leases.

    Local dealer in Quebec City is advertizing he has a CX-7 on his lot.

    Sorry..
    This was a prliminary quote in the Northeast..specifically NJ.
    I don't believe they truly know all the numbers, since most dealers couldn't even talk pricing..
    According to the Mazda site, they have a lease incentive of 3500 down and 299 mos..For the entry level I believe..

    :cry: Unfortunately for me the 400 mark is WAYYY outta my need and league at this point..

    If they start selling these at a price OVER list, forget about it.. :mad:

    My time is cruching down..my vehicle is due back the 31 of this month, so we need to SERIOUSLY consider other options..

    Like I said the choices narrow to: Tribeca Ltd; Torrent ; Mercury Mariner.....
    OH WELL!! :sick:

    It may have been the same person to call, but, he said they were a leasing company in Miami, FL. We want no part of that.

    Hi everyone,

    Here's a pic of the CX-7 we received today from Mazda.

    This is one of the freebies we were sent for being one of the First Choice program buyers. Our real one is due at the Dealer within two weeks."

    Well, our CX-7's were supposed to be released from port on May 19th. They are still there. No word yet on when they will release them.
  • zoom49zoom49 Posts: 76
    Hi Aviboy,

    My dealer also indicated the same May 19th date as released from port. There must be an issue holding up their release. Mazda I am sure does not want to miss the
    Memorial Day sales opportunity. I e-mailed Mazda yesterday
    but they were vague with only a comment of May week 5.
    Hope they come in the next few weeks as we already sold our H Accord. :confuse:

    I just hope they get here soon. It would not be good for Mazda to wait too long, because there is a lot of buzz out there about this vehicle, and you do not want it to wear off. Everyone want's it. You don't want to give potential customers a chance to get sold on another brand because they just can't wait anymore. We are in the prime selling season right now. People do not like to wait.

    Local Los Angeles dealer called today and said they got their first CX-7 in a lunch today, with three more on next truck. Going for a test drive tomorrow. Will post review after drive. :)

    I just saw that a couple of our CX-7's were released from the port on the 25th. We should be receiving them any day now!!
  • I just got in our first CX-7 yesterday afternoon...INCREDIBLE MACHINE!!!

    ZOOM ZOOM!!!

    Got a call on Friday 5/26 that local dealer had received their first CX-7. Wife and I went out yesterday for a test drive. Their unit was a GT FWD with Moonroof/Bose package in Silver Metallic, with the sand leather and GT seats. Dealer was Norco Mazda in So Calif. First off the car really looks great in person every time I see one.
    Rear seat legroom was much better that I expected, I'm 6'2". Seat materials and comfort were first rate but I'm not a big fan of the accent stripe. Door and dash materials had a nice upscale appearance, but the plastics were on the hard side. Rear cup holders are in the fold down center seat armrest. Rear seats are real easy to fold and the storage space is more than enough for us weather the seats are up or down.

    On the road is where this vehicle shines. Ride is firm but not jarring. The transmission shifts smoothly, and with six speeds you always feel that it finds the right gear for the job. Did not play with the manual shift mode on this test. There is a noticeable growl from the engine under hard acceleration, but at anything below half throttle the engine is smooth and quiet. Brakes, as previously reviewed are first rate with smooth short stops. Road noise on the freeway was low (Goodyears)and it looks like they had added extra insulation in the wheel wells. Visability is excellent all around, but it is tough to gauge where the front bumper is.

    Dealer said that they should be receiving 3 more later in the afternoon. They were willing to sell for sticker on this car which I thought was ok for it being one of the only cars delivered in the area. Looking forward to the arrival of our CX-7 which we pre ordered, and is due in next week. :)

    Just got back for picking up our CX-7. Dealer recieved them late friday 5/26 but did not have a PDI crew working on the Holiday weekend. Purchased Grand Touring FWD with Moonroof/Bose. Had pre-ordered the car back in October
    and it had 4/06 build date with a vin# of 4500. Ours came with Goodyears so we did not have to ask for any changes. Even though we were their 1st CX-7 sold at the dealer we got a discount off MSRP due to our order being placed over 6 months ago. Too late today for pics. Got to go Zoom Zoom :)
