#418 of 578 I'm Still Being Told That Parts (VVT) Not In Stock Yet
Mar 31, 2012 (1:24 pm)
Still waiting for parts to have the VVT/Timing Chain repair done on my 2007 CX-7 with the 2.3 Turbo. It's been about 2 months since I gave the dealer the ok to do the repair, but they can't do it because they are waiting on the parts from Mazda USA. I still don't have a definite date as to when the parts will be in. I'm told "I'm on the list" and that I'll get a call as soon as the parts are in.
Anyone else waiting for parts for their CX-7 with a defective VVT?

I'd say thats BS. I'm sure it's the tools they are waiting on. We had the same problem. Took months to get the tools. Mazda sucks! Their cars Suck! and the people that work for them suck too! Good luck and buy yourself a nice Ford.

I am interested in joining the class action lawsuit. I've had nothing but problems with my 2007 CX7. I have the same issues that its not covered because of the miles on my car. I was told by MAZDA I would not be reimbursed. Yet I keep getting letters from them on all these issues with the car.

I have a 2007 mazdaspeed 6 with the same problem. My car has been at the dealer for almost 6 weeks waiting for a cam gear. I am interested in getting something accomplished for getting mazda to be held accounted for. I am paying for my car every month plus insurance. The car is under warranty and they wont even give me a loaner car so I can take my new born daughter to the doctors they said they can set me up with a car but I would have to pay for it. I cant believe how horrible there customer service is. I will NEVER by another mazda.

I am in the EXACT same situation. have 72k and Mazda said tough. The car makes the rattling sound and my car lunges from 1st to 2nd gear.
Do you have any updates on the class action?

Yes i am also looking for updates with the class action lawsuit. Well here is my story I change the oil every 4000 to 5000 miles i use full synthetic. Well the last time i change it after about 1000 miles my oil was black and night. I took it to the local shop where i get the oil changes and he says it looks like sludge in the engine. So the next oil change i did myself and after about 500 miles my oil is really black and looks like it has not been changed in 10000 miles. So after reading all the post here i think i do have sludge and i am starting to worry about it. My car has 56000 and is a 2007.

Call Mazda right away and ask for the recall notices......they are good up to 72,000 (if they choose to honor them that is.....)

I would try calling another dealership. I had an appointment at one dealership to drop off my car to have the VVT system replaced. They waited till after I got there to tell me that the parts are on national backorder and had no idea when they might get them. They just said they would call me whenever they came in and that hopefully i wouldnt go over my mileage before they got them. My husband went outside and called another Mazda dealer across town and they had all the parts sitting on the shelf. I took my car to the other dealer and two days later got it back good as new. This was about 3 months ago and i have still yet to hear from the other dealer letting me know my parts are in.
