My CX-7 has 46000 miles on it and the timming chain " SKIPPED" thus hitting valves in #2 and #3 cylinders as I was told by a Mazda mechanic. Mazda what to see All the receipts for oil changes. They ask for the detailed receipts. What kind of oil did they put in my car. Now I'm 1 of those people who stands in the garage door and watches everything! 5-30 went into my car every time . Well Mazda has had my CX-7 for 2 weeks! My wife NEEDS her car! I'm waiting for Mazda to tell me what they are going to do about this ...... My CX-7 is a 2007 I just bought brand new tires for it. It's paid off! I would like info on a class action lawsuit if I don't like what I here from MAZDA .

mazda has told me my engine is shot, need new one, and they said they are not able to find a used one, new 7600.00, plus parts and labor. Questions does anybody know the best place to find used engines, is there a national website? And has anyone bought a used engine for 2008 cx-7, what do they cost?

Same problem with my car, and a used engine was impossible to find, as well as very risky for this car, as the engines are defective. My mechanic advised that he could replace all the defective parts (turbo sensor, VVT acuator, timing chain) for much less and we did it for around $5000. I check the oil once a week, as the turbo burns right through it, and the car is running well right now. However, my mechanic recommends getting rid of the car asap, as it's unknown when it's going to "blow up" again, even with doing all recommended maintanece, letting the car cool down for 2 or 3 minutes after driving, changing the oil every 2000 miles or so. Good luck....it's tricky to replace the parts, so get a really good mechanic!

so i am having a CEL code p3001 , cylinder 1 misfire.
my mechanic cannot fix it. I have changed plugs, coils, tune up and nothing. it goes away only to come back after a week.
i am going to dealer to see what they read from CEL and to see what they would do to fix problem.
my car 77K miles never had a problem before. any suggestions?

so has Mazda responded to all the complaints?
I doubt anyone will want to buy the car knowing that the engine is crap!
