I was just surfing through and found that my old post was still here. As a final update, I filed a lemon law complaint and happy to say the Mazda made this lemon go away quickly and handed me a check that was for more than I expected. After 45 days in the service dept in 10 months I was glad to see it gone. Mazda did right by me so I can't complain there but I'll never own another again. I now have a Toyota 4Runner and I'm very happy with it and won't hesitate to purchase another when the time comes. End of story.

#402 of 417 CX-7 engine pulsating during acceleration
Jan 14, 2011 (3:21 pm)
Just started at the 50K mileage mark. When I am accelerating it feels like the car is struggling. Almost pushing and pulling back, but once it is at cruising speed it runs fine. Also fine at idle.
anyone else experience this before I bring it in for a check.
Its cold up here in the Northeast and this car has always had more trouble in the cold weather.

I had a similar problem after taking the car in for a regular checkup. The dealer recommended replacing spark plugs at this mileage interval, but not essential. I said go ahead. It was only after a day or two when attempting to pass that I discovered the car would not accelerate, but surged forward then lost acceleration again and again. They found that one of the new spark plugs was defective and replaced it. Haven't had the problem again.

I purchased a 2008 CX7 6 days ago. 36,850 miles. Had the car 2 days and CEL came on I went back to dealership and they still have it. According to them they cannot figure out whats wrong. The code does not lead them to anything. After reading all these I realize this seems to be an issue. Any suggestions on what to do. Also concerned about the A/C issues I have read about. I could not purchase an extended warranty so now very concerned any pre-emptive measures I can take with the service department concerning the A/C. Thanks for any insight you guys can give me.
#405 of 417 CEL and still have problem help please

On my Mazda CX7 CEL came on, I read the code at Advance Auto and also took it to the dealership, both were same: Purge valve problem and gas cap. Dealership changed them both. But after another 70 mil CEL came on again and I took it back to dealer again same codes for Purge valve and gas cap. They replaced them again. CEL came on 3rd already and again I took it to the dealer, same codes again. Dealer spent 5 hour looking in to the problem ending up telling me that I have wire shortage in engine compartment. Car is already passed 36,000 which is bumper-to-bumper and service guy told me I need to replace whole wiring under the hood which would be $3000.00 or let them trace-find the broken wire and reconnect it which would be whatever hours it would take technician to find and reconnect the wire( which could be from $100 up to $1000).
I donít know if what they are saying is right. I donít want to fix something that might not even be broken only to come to the point that the CEL would come on again. Does anyone have same problem and does anyone have any suggestions?

Please don't ask for "personal" help via email. We all benefit when a problem is discussed on the open forum. Thanks.
