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


CX7 is a disaster. 1. My CX7's rotors had to be replaced in 12 months despite light footed driving.
2. 18 months into ownership and the engine light came on. The fuel valve had be replaced, and that after numerous arguments with the dealership. 3. The rear window chrome mouldings slid forward preventing opening of the front doors. The dealership replaced one side as a courtesy, but would not replace the other side. Then agreed to trim the other side. Very shoddy work! 4. 2 years in ownership the shift up/down to 3rd gear became jerky with a thud. The dealership refused to fix the issue despite regular servicing. I didn't bother to have it fixed. The car was returned at end of lease.

Best Features

Cool looking, firm ride and acceleration.

Worst Features

Besides the complaints, this car needs better tires. the originals went bald after 40,000 Kms. The turbo spews hot air into the cabin. Switching on the AC does little to help. The dealerships don't have a solution either.
