#470 of 608 CX7 TURBO & AC ISSUES
Oct 07, 2012 (7:05 am)
As I said previously I have a 2011 CX7 GT Edition Turbo. This vehicle has under 7,000 miles. Upon delivery of CX7 I had synthetic motor oil and premium oil filter installed. At 5,000 miles I had oil dumped and new synthetic oil and premium filter installed. My CX7 has Turbo Lag, what I believe to be smoking and AC not working properly. I am having health problems so I decided to let independent professionals study my CX7 ( I am unable to drive it now) and try and give me an answer as to problems or design flaws not addressed by Mazda. Let me just say CX7 is with University that knows how to detect problems. I had scheduled appointments with dealer service which I had to cancel and decided to go this route. Trying to obtain credible information for legal action if necessary. I will be able to drive again by end of October and seriously thinking of just unloading CX7 for something else. I was told Mazda discontinued CX7 and replaced with CX5 because of problems related to CX7 that Mazda did not want to deal with. Please keep me in loop. Thank you.

While the CX7 quite clearly has an inordinate share of problems I suspect the switch to the CX-5 and SkyActive is more about FE and the current, RISING, price of fuel.
Detuning an engine in a way that results in poor FE 98% of the time so a turbo can be fitted and functional will always be a BAD compromise.

to get the ball rolling on a larger suit simply mail a complaint to your state attorney generals office, attach any receipts and document all claims, they in turn present these charges which I expect will soon surface in the public and Mazda will need to answer for them-regardless of whether or not the issues are fixed-DUMP THE CAR A.S.A.P!!!! It is a money pit, someone above reminded me my air conditioner never really blew cold air(I usually have the window down) I had a violent vibration at speeds over 35mph (tires were balanced and in good cond) smoke, sludge my rear doorlocks stopped working one at a time!!!!! Dump the crap angry cx7

Angry CX7!! Will also post this on Mazda forum on FB, please pass this around to any other sight where people are online.
