I own a 2008 Mazda CX-7 with 43,000 miles on it. When driving home I heard a loud whining noise and loss of power. I had the Mazda dealership tow it in. The service department said it was the turbo and was covered under my 5yr/60k miles Power Train Warranty. The next day the service department called and wanted to see my service records. I provided them with a log of which I had written down my oil changes, which I had done myself. The filler lines for the turbo were stopped up with sludge and so were the valve covers. They would not honor the Warranty. Now I have to pay for the repairs on my auto. I have been reading that Mazda is using the sludge as a way to get out of doing the warranty work. It has been stated here that the motors are over cooking the oil causing the sludge. Mazda needs to do a recall. Why are the 2011 CX7's so late hitting the show room floor. Seems like a problem. My auto is still at the service department. If anyone can help on where I should go from here please let me know.

You didn't state what the oil change intervals were on this particular car. A 2008 w/ 43,000 miles shouldn't have clogged oil filler lines under normal operating conditions. Did the dealer actually show you the clogged lines/valve covers or did they just tell you this?

I just called Mazda about my Air-condition compressor because they sent me a letter to tell me that it is defective. I was under the impression that they would correct or replace the part that they themselves thought was defective and causing problems. They informed me that my car had to many miles and that I would have to pay almost $1000 for a part they deemed defective to be repaired at their dealership. This is EXTORTION! They are making me and what looks like many other pay for an issue that they created! I will never buy another Mazda! It's bad enough they charge an arm and a leg for scheduled maintenance but to tell Mazda owners we put a defective part in your car but you will have to get it fixed on your dime is UNFAIR! There has to be some consumer law being broken here!

Mazda will not honor any warranty works if the vehicle is lack of maintenance. What you call Mazda Customer Assistant, they may able to help you, Good Luck

I just bought an 07 two days ago. How old is your car?. I noticed on the car fax that mine had been recalled for the air conditioning thing. I also noticed that the exhaust is kind of dark looking. I am going to take it in. I purchased a warranty but it sounds like they are no good.

I have the same problem but not getting any results! I do see a call to Mazda directly in my near future!
