Review

The title says it all. While it's roomy, comfortable, and somewhat sporty (which is what prompted me to purchase it in the first place), that can't make up for the absolute nightmare that the car has been to own. First of all, the mileage is abysmal, and you're going to have to multiply that by the fact that you need premium gas to run this thing, as it's a 4-cylinder turbo. The absolute most damning thing is the reliability. There is none. I have poured so much money into this car, I could have bought another one by now. The timing chain will wear on you. It's a known issue. It's supposed to last the life of the vehicle, but Mazda dun goofed and now it's the #1 repair on this vehicle (according to my mechanic, whose kids are now able to attend an Ivy league university, courtesy of incompetent Mazda engineers and clueless marks like myself). Every other month there's a problem with it... and I have NOT been ignoring the maintenance schedule. Also be aware there are several recalls currently on this vehicle (including in the "may cause serious injury or death" category), but of course the parts are on backorder and there's nothing they can do at the moment. I'm not even going to try and sell it, as this is a fate I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy. If you happen to be driving through the breathtaking vistas of the Grand Canyon, and you see a guy set fire to a burgundy Mazda CX-7 and push it in, you've found me.

Review

First mazda has a secret recall on the car for the timing gear and chain problem. Then the nut on the turbo came off; this of course is not under warranty. Now the airbag and suspension are being recalled. Just give everyone money back and crush these cars. Want a real turd but one.!

Review

Purchased new in March 2007. Constant CELs (check engine lights) from the beginning. I don't drive it much. Has less than 70,000 miles on it almost 10 years later. Just spent $2k repairing timing chain and oil control valve. Has needed prior expensive repairs related to the turbo engine. This is an old car but kept in the garage with VERY low miles. The oil is changed frequently, the maintenance is kept up. It should be a VERY good car at this point but it isn't. You will find yourself with expensive repairs if you buy this car. Researched online and many owners had a blown engine at 60-100K miles. Mazda stopped making them for a good reason. On top of that, whatever the advertised MPG is, is a lie. I get about 250 miles from a full tank of gas. That's about 16 MPG regardless of freeway or street driving. Yes, it's cute but the reality of owning it isn't.

It's more like a car than a truck. Quick and nimble but more room than Honda CR-V or Toyota rav 4
