PERSONAL CHOICE: Reader Theo Kruger's latest addition to his family - A Mazda CX-7.

Since March 2012 Wheels24 readers have enthralled us with their stories in our Readers' Road Test section. With five months into 2012 we've read road tests on bikes, sedans, 4x4s and SUVs.

Reader Tshepo Mogale traded in his VW Golf 5 2.0 for a Golf 6 1.4 and despite early teething problems has grown fond of his new ride.

Reader Egor Oussov managed to convert his girlfriend into a Triumph Speed Triple fan with his two-wheeled wonder.

Devin Payne shared his experience in his Terracan with us. The 4x4 left such an impression on him, he's now ready to take on Africa in his big Hyundai.

Despite initial apprehension at buying a Korean vehicle, reader Sajit Kalidas says he made the perfect choice with his new Kia Cerato.

Reader Theo Kruger's experience with the latest member of his vehicle family continues to be a sporty surprise as he shared his thoughts on his mom's Mazda CX-7.
