Thanks for your input.Car has 47k on it . AC not in warranty. Why should Someone pay for future problems caused by past events. Mazda should extended warranty to 100K for peace of mind and value for next owner. The Cx-7 has a bad name now . Who would take it in trade at a decent value ? Mazda? Why would I want another Mazda? Car was fixed early October and still smells of coolant.

In Canada the three year warranty is for 80,000km or 50,000 miles. I wonder why the U.S. warranty is for only 36,000 miles. Strange. I agree your vehicle has been a lot of trouble and I wouldn't want another one either.
Why don't you take your Mazda to a detailing shop and see if they can get the anti freeze smell out.
#147 of 284 mazda cx7 ac problems
Nov 17, 2009 (4:51 pm)
I have a Mazda CX-7 2007 with 46,000 miles. After my ac went out, making loud noises and smoking, I went online and read all the problem everyone is having. I was about to explode when I finished. I went to my local Mazda dealership the next day, armed with all the printouts of complaints and darred them to not fix it at Mazda's costs. They were very nice and said they would contact Mazda for me and let me know. Within several hours they called and said the ac/compressor had locked up and that Mazda would be taking care of it. Still had to check the engine but so far so good. I was actually shocked that they didnt make me attempt to sue them first. I think I definately lucked up. But I also told them to keep the PS that I didnt want it back and drove off with a new car (as a loaner). Maybe they just want to sell me the new car, definately not a Mazda!!!!

I'll be the first to tell you that you should've bought one anyhow, because this problem has been fixed, back in 2008. So 2007/partial 2008 models are effected by this problem. Of course you could've noticed this but you didn't.

So you feel even though sales people and Mazda dealerships were aware of this problem, it was ok for them to continue to sell such a dangerous vehicle? As for knowing about the problem, I am probably much older than you and not a frequent internet user. I found out about this forum after my AC locked up and was looking for answers.

Some how I was added to this thread thru e-mail. Please keep me out of this feud. Per the dealer , the AC compressor that was replaced in my CX-7 was an updated version , so the problem hopefully will not occur again.

The compressor was updated with a new design thus fixing the problem.
