Our Fleet Test Drive Review: Mazda CX-7 - 14th Report
18 May 2011
Author: Tristan Young
Cars are becoming ever more high-tech when it comes to servicing, and most modern models now have reminders that tell you a visit to the dealer is approaching.
The CX-7 is no exception. What's different to other cars, though, is that you don't need pricey electronic software to reset this service reminder - you can control it all from the driver's Seat and the steering wheel-mounted buttons. I love the way this car treats you like a grown-up, giving you the responsibility, if you want, to reset the reminder, and doesn't nanny you into doing exactly what it wants.
