My Take: Mazda’s Top-of-the-Line CX-7 lease isn’t as great as the money factors would indicate. Back in May, I was offered a fully loaded CX-7 GT (FWD) which had a residual of 54%, but the money factor was lower at .00094 which wasn’t too shabby since all of the rebates helped cut down the upfront costs. Unfortunately, there aren’t any “rebates” to be had this month on the CX-7, so you pretty much have to rely on the dealer to dip way below invoice to make the deal worth your while. I still think $412+tax at invoice is a bit high considering you still have to pay for inception fees. Factor in the poor gas mileage this car gives and you probably want to think long and hard as to whether you REALLY want a CX-7 sitting on your driveway.
