#1 of 21 2007 CX7 EGR valve
Jan 15, 2010 (8:28 am)
Had to have diagnosis done due to engine light repeatedly coming on. Turned out to be EGR valve replacement. Disappointed to learn not covered under warranty.
Anyone with similiar experience or comment on this?
Thank you, Vic

"..not covered under warranty.."
Not bloody likely...

Just discovered yesterday that Mazda does not cover the EGR on the 2007 model but it does cover the EGR on the 2008 model and up. This part is covered based on the adoption of other states using the California emissions standard. Using this standard allows the EGR valve to be covered for 60 or 80,000 miles. My dealer was not aware of this but another dealer and Mazda USA both confirmed this to be true.
Sorry to hear that the 2007 is not covered.

Had the same problem on my 2007 CX7. I paid what seemed to be way too much to have it replaced. Just found this site and now I'm getting concerned about the long-term reliability of my CX-7. I just had another issue - the sunroof exploded for no apparent reason as we were driving at moderate speeds. I'll post that separately.

Had the same issue with my 2007 in October 2010! Mazda dealership quoted me $700 for the repair! And since I had just spend $4500 to replace my out of warranty engine because of the timing chain busting (Mazda did manage to cough up $2500 since I had maintenance records) I decided to get a second opinion. Took it to a mechanic a friend recommended and he quoted me $250 for same repair! It's gets better! When he removed the old EGR valve he found it just needed to be cleaned, not replaced. Total bill was $110. Gotta love the dealership...I am just sorry I didn't see this post sooner.

Did you review my post above?
The EGR replacement is covered on 2007's under the engine warranty.
If your 2007 CX-7 is still covered by the engine/ power train warranty they will need to reimburse you for this repair. It should not be out of pocket. Mazda USA can confirm this. You need to be explicit and state that it's covered on the 2007 models and not 2008's or later.
Let us know if you get this resolved.
If you don't get it resolved and you need more help I can share more information regarding my repair experience.

Your original post shows that a 07 is not covered but 08 and later is. Now you are saying a 07 is covered? I called Mazda the last week of 2011 since an engine light showed I needed to replace the EGR valve at 45K, and they told me it was not covered under the powertrain warranty. Please share any more info you have. Thanks.

My fist post was correct. It's been a while since I had this issue resolved by the dealer for free.
2007 was not covered. 2008 and up are covered via the California emissions standard.
I had to call 3 dealers to determine if this was covered. Apparently not all Mazda techs know how to use the Mazda system to check the coverage for these issues.
