CX-7- a really nice garage ornament !
By fliar on
Vehicle
2007 Mazda CX-7 Touring 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
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!
Favorite Features
Luxury interior, nice ergonomics, good performance, fun to drive! FIRST day I owned it and LAST day I owned it!
Suggested Improvements
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.
