#189 of 284 Good News for 2007 CX7 Owners!
Aug 27, 2010 (7:32 am)
While I have been fortunate so far with my 2007 CX7's A/C compressor, I have spoken at length with my dealer's service manager about the number of complaints. On Wednesday, he called to inform me that Mazda is extending the A/C warranty on specific 2007 VINs to 5-years/60,000 miles. A letter from the manufacturer is forthcoming and you all might call your service departments with any questions; not sure if they will cover retroactively, but that sure would be a great public relations move.

Just got my letter today - they WILL cover retroactively provided the other terms are met! I'm grateful that Mazda finally decided to do the right thing

Just got the letter that Mazda is recalling '08 and '08 CX7s for faulty air compressor. I want everyone know that two weeks ago I had this problem. It started blowing hot air. Dealer wanted $1600. I complained to customer service through Mazda and they offered to pay for the part, but not the labor. That would have left me with a $500 expense. Finally, I convinced them that it was inconsistent for them to agree the compressor was faulty and not pay for the labor, despite the fact that I did not have the extended warranty--which I do regret. So, after a week of begging and pleeding, they covered everything. I thought they were just doing right by me. Now I come to realize that they knew about the defect all along and still wanted me to pay $500. I do feel like they were kind of underhanded. This just happened 2 weeks ago!

While it's great that Mazda has finally decided to do the right thing, I don't understand these inflated prices. When I paid the entire bill back in April, the compressor kit was $340 and the labor $217.50 (this was the Mazda dealer from whom I bought the car). And this was without any pressure from me.

I got my letter this week and took it to Mazda for service. They couldnot find any problems at all. They told me that I had an additional year of warrenty and 50,000 which ever came first. I only have 15,000 miles on an 07 GTFWD fully loaded.
I had them do a 15,000 miles inspection and changed my oil, etc.
I use 5w-20w Penzoil Plantimum and they provided the oil filter.

Has anyone else experienced their side vents closing shut when the AC is on full blast? This doesn't happen all of the time just occasionally.

They are doing a recall, but my issue is that i had to replace my ac compressor and i don't qualify for the recall because I have to many miles on my vehicle. so i guess the part is only defective on vehicles under 60k miles. WHAT A CROCK. I think a bad part is a bad part. no matter what the miles are. mazda should bee accountable for all the parts not just a select few.

I have a 2008 CX-7 and Mazda told me that they replaced my compressor last year so the recall shouldn't affect me, even though it's blasting out hot air when i put the a/c on. Should I bring it back again???

For this recall, if you are experiencing a defective A/C unit, it should be replaced.
