2007 Mazda CX-7 Grand Touring 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

AC went out twice. 30 days after AC failed turbo failed. Mazda will not honor warranties and will try to find anyway they can to back out. If you own one sell it or start saving your money for the inevitable and very costly repairs.

2007 Mazda CX-7 Touring 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

In 2007 i purchased the cx7. It already had 200 miles on it when i took it off the lot. It was fully loaded. I found that programing the nav system was very complicated, so i ended up buying a garmin. Would you believe it costs $200.00 to buy a new navi disk every year? After 36,000 miles the a/c compressor went out. That cost me $600.00 to replace. Then the fuel valve out and that was going to cost me another $600.00. Hey, my payments were over $600.00 as it was. I just don't have that kind of money to keep putting it in for repairs. So i traded it in for a 2010 Jeep Compass with a life time warranty. I am so sorry i wasted my money for three years.


Best Features

Speakers were nice. 5 disk cd player was good.

Review

You will LOVE this car- right up until it becomes a garage ornament! This car has GREAT styling and performance UNTIL you start having known issues with it- 1. the A/C compressors are known to fail/smoke/catch fire 2. the timing chains are known to break in even LOW MILEAGE cars and trash the engine 3. poor turbo cooling design leads to sludge buildup and failure. Numerous owner reports in Mazda forums of MAZDA NOT honoring the 5 year/ 60,000 mile Powertrain Warranty to repair the trashed motors citing "poor owner maintenance" even when owners present valid oil change receipts, etc. Overall, the nicest car you are ever going to HATE! Avoid this engineering nightmare!


Best Features

Luxury interior, nice ergonomics, good performance, fun to drive! FIRST day I owned it and LAST day I owned it!


Worst Features

REQUIRES PREMIUM fuel, poor engineering in ac compressor, turbo and engine timing chain, poor warranty response by Mazda cited in many user reports. Contact BBB Auto Line for Warranty complaints against Mazda if they refuse to repair your vehicle's engine while still in warranty.

Review

Well it's me again and it looks as though the same problems everyone has endured with their Mazda, I am encountering also. In July I purchased my CX7 with 33,000 mi I was oh so pleased! In October my AC Compressor went out, Thank God I purchased the extended warranty. The whole compressor had to be replaced. I am so desperately trying to trade this car in, cause it looks like a host of problems is in my future. I have been told that it is only worth 10-14,000 when I paid 19,000, Wow! Mazda should be ashamed of themselves producing such a problem! I will have to take a HUGE lost, but whatever it takes to get out of this one, I will do!


Best Features

The Pros were outweighed by the Cons in this case. I loved this car when first purchased, but I just can't enjoy something I'm paying hundreds of dollars a month for and its not functioning properly. I just hate car problems. Never again Mazda, I'm going back to HONDA!


Worst Features

Build a more reliable car, where the parts don't go out for at least the life of the car payments! I thought I was in a wonderful vehicle & I'd have lots of fun with it, but I could have kept my 05 Honda Accord(that I gave to my son. Had it for 5 yrs & not one problem EVER!)

2007 Mazda CX-7 Touring 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

I purchased this vehicle used, with 38,000 miles on it. I just needed a car to get me through 6-8 months after my husband PCSd with out Jetta and until i could join him. I have to say that I haven't had any of the problems with the vehicle that people have mentioned. So far I am really impressed with this little SUV. It has all the space I need and with a baby due in Jan, it will accommodate all the extra's and the 72 lb dog without any problems.


Best Features

Leather seating. The pick-up and go, considering the 4 cylinder. The stability on the road.


Worst Features

No Aux for an iPod, if I wanted it. No Bluetooth for hands free talking.
