2009 Mazda CX-7 Sport 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
I saw no review about the VVT problem that is part of the CX7. This can be a very serious problem. To having the entire engine replaced. Symptoms: engine makes ticking/clacking noise when running and loud snap upon start up. My first trip to dealership was brushed off. Second trip, doing repairs.
Outside styling. BUT slant of front doors can be a problem. Top edge of door is back further from handle, has hit me and others in face when closing.
