Hello - I have been with out my CX7 (08) for 9 days now. The Turbo has failed. I have honored the request for service history and they will allow the repair of my car on one condition. They are sending an independent claims adjuster to the dealer to visually check the oil line to the Turbo. If he sees excessive SLUDGE, they will not repair my car. What is exessive SLUDGE - I am assuming from all the forums that it can be whatever they want so as to facilitate their need to refuse repairing any MAZDA. I have 62500 miles currently - at 57K the timing tensioner was rattling and I had this repaired (took 9 days as they kept misdiagnosing the part) - at 60K the right front oil filled motor mount went out. I have asked to be called when the adjuster arrives for inspection. I will be there for his evaluation - camera and records in hand. Wish me luck and say a prayer as well. Anyone who has or is going to start a class action law suit...put me on the list. I am ready to join the team. tks

just an update - the independent adjuster reviewed the turbo oil plug that feeds the turbo. It was of course full of SLUDGE. The extended warranty company denied to cover the repairs. I have a call into Mazda corp...they say they will review and let me know if they can help.
they say i should have been changing my oil at 5000mile intervals (review your owners manual schedule 2) they warranty contract is what i looked at and it states 7500mile intervals....who knows what you are supposed to do....i am probably going to have to repair the car at my cost....it seems we are all in the same boat.
i hate this hopeless feeling...you trust in someone or something and they just leave you hung out to dry. Helpless in Harrisburg

This is very disturbing information. I am reading more and more negative things about Mazda and especially the CX-7. I use Pennzoil Platinum Full Synthetic 10w-30w. It is changed at 7,000miles or 6 months which ever comes first.
We took a trip of 1800 miles in the northern ozarks from SW La. total gas milage overall was 23.6mpg. with a high of 26.4mpg and a low of 20.5mpg. We only have 15,000 miles on the CX-7, my wife's car and she prefers to drive our 2006 RTL/SR Honda Ridgeline.
Hopefully we will continue not to have any problems, there are a lot of CX-7's in our area of 200,000+ people in SW La.

I would suggest that you increase your oil change to 3,000 miles and never go over that amount. you need to take the car to mazda and do no tell them you waited 7000 miles your first oil change. have them check your car out and document the procedure. I loved our cx 7 but this car has severe problems, mostly flaws in the design. my advice to you if you don't absolutely love the car is to trade it for a Ford. The Ford Edge is a better car and the company would never do this to their clientele. If you find yourself in a bad situation with the car please contact me and send me your e mail, we are combining our efforts to sue Mazda.

Already did this almost a year ago, Aug/Sept when my wife's car was destroyed. Filed report but never any response
