Mazda CX-7 AC problems

Re: My 2009 CX-7 GT Turbo AC is bad too. [statraveler]

Written by: boesman1 on Nov 26, 2012 10:24:52 AM

My A/C pully ceased yesterday while I was in another state visiting for the holiday weekend. What a nightmare with family and belongings in the car waiting 3 hrs for a tow truck. Dropped the car @ Huntington Mazda and called them first thing in the AM.

My car was 5yrs old in April 2012 and only has 52k on it so I was hoping maybe Mazda would do the right. Read More

I am having brake problems, but mine are a bit different than what’s been discussed below. About a month and a half ago, the brakes on my 2009 Mazda CX-7 started getting squishy and weren’t responding as well as they always had. Then, one day they stopped responding altogether and I had to pump the brakes to get the car to stop.

I took it in and they said the master. Read More

I own a mazda cx-7 2009. At 42000 the air conditoning compressor went bad. I called and took car to dealer and had a similiar situation. It cost $1,100. this wasnt covered under warranty as the car had 6000 mile beyond the 36000 maximum allowed. Total EXTORTION.

If the compressor is going bad after 2 years there is obviously something very wrong with the quality of it. Customer service checked the. Read More

Mazda CX-7 Engine Problems

Written by: flqueenfan on Jul 21, 2011 6:49:00 PM

My 2007 CX-7’s VVT actuator supposedly was repaired according to the recall or TSB back in March of 2009. (I say supposedly because in trying to line up all my maintenance records I called the dealer where the work was done; they have evidence of the labor only, but not on the parts; this comes into play shortly.) Even after the repair, she always ran rich and other than ridiculously low. Read More

I would make sure the water pump // timing chain // and the VVT acuator are all replaced as long as they are going that far with engine repairs. Should all be covered under warranty for you.

Mazda CX7 2009

I have had the engine ticking and snap on starting up since I purchased my car. The dealership said all the cars sound like that and the snap is the plastic parts adjusting to the temperature. I took my car in again to a different dealership and they tell me it is the VVT thing. After some research and reading this forum.

I am scared to death of problems with my new. Read More

Hello there. I currently own a 2009 Mazda 3 which I absolutely love so I have been looking at the 2010 CX7 for some more room. I’m a little turned off by the recommended premium fuel on the turbo model.

Re: To Buy CX-7 or Not to Buy? [auto_girl_2009]

Written by: wwest on Dec 31, 2009 9:51:33 AM

Mazda seems to be well ahead of the curve insofar as working out the kinks in the F/awd system but you seem to not need, or are not interested, in the F/awd model. That’s just as well since the turbo motor seems to still be fraught with problems. I would NEVER recommend a FWD to anyone, and certainly not somewhat with the expectation of encountering wintertime adverse roadbed conditions. But I. Read More

Sign and Drive 2009

After much research including using the Edmunds lease calculators, this sign and drive offer for a CX-7 i SV FWD seems like a very good offer (except that it is for 42 months instead of Edmunds suggested 36 months). Do you guys agree this is a good deal and is there additional room for negotiation in a national offer like this one? $299/Month Lease for 42 Months $0 Down Payment, $0. Read More

You need to better inform yourself, the CX7-GT-AWD 2008 model takes regular gas, production models before 08, had to use premium. Mazda reprogrammed the engine and fixed the problem.

Re: 2009 Mazda CX-7 GT w/ technology package [crazyeddie]

27K sounds about right for the GT with technology package based on my shopping experience. 21k for GT with bose sounds too good to be true even if its an 08. Was it AWD? I just got a touring AWD with bose for 24k +tax.

I overpaid but I just wanted the car in that particular color.

Per the 2009 user guide, you can run your CX-7 on less than 91 octane, but performance may suffer a bit. We’ll be running our new one on 89 for a while and see how she handles.

Acura RDX vs Mazda CX-7

Re: resale value my friend [wwest]

Written by: aviboy97 on Jun 23, 2009 10:34:58 AM

From the CX-7’s transaxle to the rear the driveline is an EXACT duplicate of the Ford Escape, Edge, etc. That is incorrect. First, the Escape is 4WD, not AWD. Second, the Edge uses Ford’s in-house built AWD system, similar to a Haldex FWD based AWD system. Mazda uses their own Active Torque-Split AWD, which is also a FWD based AWD system.

So, they are similar in design, but they are not. Read More

You’re very welcome, maxglobin. You will have two options at the end of your Altima lease, buy your leased car or return it to the dealer and get something new. which does not necessarily have to be another Nissan vehicle. Given the dramatic fall in the value of used vehicles over the past year you probably do not want to buy your car at lease-end, unless Nissan is willing to significantly reduce. Read More

So I did not pursue the purchase with them. Read More

I believe it is the same $3,750 that has been thrown around here for awhile. The bottom line is, there is still a fair amount of wiggle room in the numbers to get the dealers down several thousand dollars off msrp and invoice.
