Very sadly I hear exactly what you are saying. I have a 2011 CX7 s Gran Touring that does not have 10,000 miles on it yet. When I turn on the A/C in the morning there is an extremely loud banging sound. The A/C does not cool the car. Mazda field engineers sent me and the dealer a message stating that it is normal for the loud A/C start and all Mazdas are like this. I submitted my complaints and documentation to the Better Business Bureau. The BBB is arbitrating and Mazda is having an engineer come to review my CX7 on June 7th. My CX7 also surges. My master cylinder was replaced twice and the brake booster once. At this time Mazda pronounces my CX7 as performing the way it should. After the engineer checks it out I will see the report and if necessary take the information from independent professional engineers and start legal proceedings. The bottom line is the CX7 Turbo has engineering problems and at this time Mazda is not owning up to them.
#582 of 608 class action mazda lawsuits
Jun 02, 2013 (3:58 pm)
for those cx7 drivers experiencing frustrations with your vehicle, I was one of the first of this thread trying to start a class action, maybe you can get them to repair the car, but money is not
going to be involved, class actions usually get you about 3 dollars- because of a gag in my settlement I can't say too much, but I urge everyone here to contact your state local attorney general's office, file a claim, and let them pressure mazda to correct this crappy p.o.s, If not the only person who'll get a settlement is the lawyer, also this could take yrs. to settle as they have been in court over the mazda 8 for years( search class action mazda 8 suit) good luck

Contact the Better Business Bureau, you can fill out everything on line. Contact your State Attorney General, this in most instances can be done on line too. Contact The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, this can be done on line. If you need to sue Mazda get the right legal representation you will get a good settlement. Make Mazda as miserable as they are making you. I have a field representative going over my CX7 in a week. I want to see whether the field representative's findings concur with nationally recognized experts that have examined my CX7. I am looking forward to this.

I believe there is a tsb out for your a/c issue during hotter temps that will fix that concern

Mazda contacted me from Irvine, CA to set up with Reedman-Toll to bring in my CX7 and have Mazda field representative go over the CX7. Reedman-Toll had my CX7 and performed the tsb service. My CX7 is just slightly cooler, nothing really earth shattering. Filed representative told me my CX7 is black and has leather which makes it hot. We discussed deeper tinting the windows, this may help. The end result Mazda tried with very little success. Reedman-Toll lost the red positive battery terminal cover and supposedly will order me a new one; or at least that was their promise. Reedman-Toll did work on the CX7 much cleaner this time after my complaining about how CX7 was returned after last visit. Gas mileage is now horrible. Just about to turn 10,000 miles. Considering replacing CX7, but with what?

#587 of 608 same issue as everyone else
Jun 20, 2013 (11:01 am)
I have the same issue as everyone else . The history with my 2008 cx 7 is in the first month the ac stopped working. But under warranty so it was fixed. The third month my moon roof wind deflector got stuck and was fixed under warranty. I also complained about a knocking noise in my engine and was told its normal for these cars . I complained again and they checked it out and said its normal. Then I was moving to California and driving here my a/c froze in the middle of the desert .That was fixed under the extended warranty . About 5000 miles over the extended warranty I was switching the car from reverse to drive and heard a loud clunk but the it felt like something caught now I have this terrible engine noise sounds like a diesel car . I am out of warranty so its all on me . sounds like the timing chain . I keep searching for the lawsuit but haven't had any luck on the internet . Hoping I can get in on it as I don't have the money to fix the car and am worried I am on borrowed time . Almost traded the car in a year ago for a new jeep wish I did . Now things just keep getting worse with this car .I had a little smoke coming from my exhaust . Anyone know of a lawsuit and can help me get in touch with a lawyer who is persuing this.
#589 of 608 Cutting off when idling - any ideas?
Jun 20, 2013 (12:02 pm)
Man, my CX-7, she's been through a lot. We're at 137,000 miles. We've had all kinds of problems, most of which are now fixed, but now, when she's warm enough, she just cuts off. Anytime we're idling or going real slow not accelerating, she likes to cut off. Went to mechanic, they said most of the oil was gone...where did it go? It's not burning, it's not leaking, it's not in the turbo...where is it? Anyway, put more oil in, oil is now at max fill, and she's still cutting off whenever she gets a chance, and does a lurching/surging when we're going fast. I really just want to sell her. Can anyone help me diagnose this problem? My mechanic doesn't seem to know. It's not jumping timing or have bad spark plugs. Could it be the EGR (even though I cleaned it a month ago?) Why wouldn't the CEL for EGR be on? There are no CEL warnings right now.

Did Morrie's Mazda repair your timing chain on the CX-7? Driving an early build CX-7 (2007) w/ 105,000 miles purchased from Morrie's new in October 2006. Had timing chain/water pump replaced at 55,000 miles.
