SUSPENSION

10/28/2014 - TALLAHASSEE, FL
I NOTICED A "RUBBING: SOUND, OR A SOUND IN THE SUSPENSION OR STEERING THAT WOULD LEAD ME TO THINK IT NEEDED A "LUBE JOB", BUT NEWER VEHICLES NO LONG NEED TO BE GREASED SO I TOOK IT TO THE DEALER. THE SOUND OCCURRED MOST NOTABLY AT LOW SPEED WHILE TURNING SLOWLY, MANY TIMES WHILE BACKING UP AND TURNING, IT SOUNDED "DRY" AND LABORED, NOT A SQUEALING OR SQUEAKY SOUND. BUT I COULD NOT REPRODUCE THE NOISE AT THE DEALERSHIP, DESPITE MULTIPLE TRIPS AND HAVING THE MECHANIC SIT IN THE VEHICLE WITH ME. FINALLY THEY REPLACED THE "STRUT BEARINGS" IN 2013, THOUGH I HAD NEVER HEARD OF THIS PART BEFORE. THEY WERE CERTAIN THIS WOULD CORRECT THE PROBLEM BUT IT DID NOT. MY LAST TRIP TO THE DEALER IN OCT. 2014 LED THEM TO THINK THE STRUTS NEEDED REPLACING ALONG WITH THE STRUT BEARINGS, THOUGH THE LATTER WAS STILL UNDER WARRANTY. MY VEHICLE HAS LESS THAN 67,000 MILES ON IT. I'M TOLD BY ANOTHER MECHANICS GARAGE SERVICE THERE WAS A 2009 MANUFACTURER NOTICE ABOUT THIS PROBLEM, BUT NO ONE AT THE DEALER SAID ANYTHING ABOUT IT.

10/27/2014 - FORT WAYNE, IN
I WAS PREPARING TO STOP AT A STOP SIGN WHEN MY CAR STOPPED RUNNING. I HAD IT TOWED TO THE GARAGE WHO ALWAYS MAINTAINS MY CAR. THEY FOUND THAT THE TIMING BELT HAD BROKEN. I THOUGHT THIS WAS STRANGE SINCE MY CAR ONLY HAD 61000 MILES ON IT, SO I STARTED RESEARCHING THE PROBLEM. I FOUND THAT MAZDA HAD PUT DEFECTIVE PARTS ON THESE ENGINES. THEY HAD AN EXTENDED WARRANTY, BUT OF COURSE THAT HAD RUN OUT FOR ME. WHY SHOULDN'T A MANUFACTURER HAVE TO STAND BEHIND THE DEFECTIVE PARTS THEY PUT ON AN ENGINE? THIS COST ME $3700.00 FOR THEIR HALF-A* WORK!!!! IF THIS TIMING CHAIN HAD BROKEN WHILE I WAS IN HEAVY TRAFFIC, THIS COULD HAVE BEEN A DISASTER!!

I PURCHASED MY CAR, A 2007 MAZDA CX7 USED WITH 34,000 MILES ON IT APPROXIMATELY 4 YEARS AGO. I WAS DRIVING APPROACHING A STOP SIGN AND MY CAR JUST STOPPED RUNNING. I WAS ABLE TO GO AROUND THE CORNER AND GET THE CAR OFF THE ROAD AND OUT OF TRAFFIC. I HAD THE CAR TOWED TO THE GARAGE NEAR MY WORK WHO USUALLY MAINTAINS MY CAR. THEY SAID THAT THE REPAIRS WERE GOING TO COST $3742.00. TWO VALVES NEED GROUND AND NUMEROUS OTHER PARTS NEED TO BE REPLACED. AFTER DOING SOME RESEARCH I FIND THAT MAZDA HAS HAD THIS PROBLEM WITH MANY OF THE CX7 VEHICLES, BUT THEY ARE NOT COVERING THE REPAIRS. I TAKE VERY GOOD CARE OF MY CAR, HAVE REGULAR MAINTAINENCE DONE, AND DO NOT PUT A LOT OF MILES, OR DRIVE MY CAR HARD. THERE IS NO REASON THAT THIS SHOULD HAVE HAPPEN OTHER THAN DEFECTIVE PARTS FROM MAZDA!!!! THEY SHOULD MAKE THIS RIGHT. THESE CARS ARE EXPENSIVE AND THE OWNER SHOULD NOT BE EXPERIENCING SUCH MAJOR REPAIR COSTS WITH SO FEW MILES ON THE CAR.

POWER TRAIN

9/10/2014 - DERRY , PA
I PURCHASED MY 2007 MAZDA CX-7 FROM A DEALERSHIP IN GREENSBURG, PA IN FEBRUARY OF 2014, IT WAS PURCHASED AS A USED CAR WITH ONLY 36,500 MILES ON IT. I HAD NO PROBLEMS WITH THE CAR AT FIRST, THEN I NOTICED MY GAS MILEAGE WAS GETTING WORSE, THAT IS WHEN ON MEMORIAL DAY MY CHECK ENGINE LIGHT WOULD COME ON AND THEN GO OFF. I TOOK IT MY MECHANIC BECAUSE I WAS UNABLE TO GET IT IN TO THE DEALERSHIP FOR A WEEK AT SOME POINTS AND THE LIGHT WOULD HAVE BE OFF BY THEN. THEN WHEN I WAS ON MY WAY HOME ON THE EVENING OF 9/4/14 MY CAR MADE A VERY WEIRD SOUND ANY TIME I WOULD TRY TO PUSH ON THE GAS. I PULLED THE CAR OFF THE ROAD AND THERE IT SAT UNTIL I COULD REACH THE SERVICE DEPARTMENT ON THE FOLLOWING DAY. MY HUSBAND TOOK THE CAR TO THE DEALERSHIP AND THAT'S WHERE IT SAT BECAUSE HE WAS INFORMED THAT IT WAS UNSAFE TO DRIVE? I WENT UP AFTER WORK ONLY TO HAVE THEM TELL ME THAT THEY COULD NOT GET THE READINGS FROM THE DIAGNOSTIC TEST AND THAT THEY WOULD HAVE TO SEND IT TO AN ACTUAL MAZDA DEALERSHIP, WHERE IT HAS BEEN FOR ALMOST A WEEK. I WAS INFORMED YESTERDAY THAT MY TURBO AND OTHER UN-MENTIONED PARTS HAD BROKEN. I THEN WAITED TO HEAR BACK AS TO WHETHER THE WARRANTY THAT I PAID AN ADDITIONAL $2,000 FOR AT THE TIME OF PURCHASE WOULD COVER IT, IT WILL NOT COVER THIS AND THEY STATED THAT THE TURBO WAS NOT CONSIDERED A PART OF THE "POWERTRAIN" SO THEY QUOTED ME A PRICE OF UPWARDS OF $3300 TO REPAIR THE VEHICLE THAT I HAVE HAD FOR 7 MONTHS. I HAVE STARTED TO DO RESEARCH INTO THIS VEHICLE AND I HAVE FOUND OUT THAT THIS IS ACTUALLY QUITE A COMMON PROBLEM WITH THIS MAKE AND MODEL AND THAT THE MANUFACTURER WILL NOT STAND BY THE PRODUCT FULLY KNOWING THAT THIS IS A PROBLEM AND THE CONSUMER IS LEFT HOLDING QUITE A HEFTY BILL. I IMPLORE YOU TO RESEARCH THIS AND FORCE THEIR HAND SO THAT "JOE PUBLIC" DOESN'T KEEP GETTING STUCK HOLDING A HUGE BILL FOR SOMETHING THIS COMPANY JUST DOESN'T WANT TO FIX.

9/1/2014 - BEAR, DE
AFTER LEAVING A FAMILY MEMBER'S OUT OF STATE HOME EARLY ON MONDAY AUGUST 25, 2014 MORNING NOTICED A NOISE COMING FROM THE FRONT OF THE VEHICLE. APPROXIMATELY 5 MILES LATER A BURNING SMELL AND SMOKE STARTED COMING FROM THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT ALONG WITH LOUD SQUEALING. PULLED ONTO SHOULDER OF ROAD AND SHUT OFF VEHICLE. I OPENED THE HOOD AND IT WAS OBVIOUS SOMETHING HAD BURNED UP BUT DIDN'T EASILY IDENTIFY WHAT. CALLED AAA FOR A TOW TO NEAREST MAZDA DEALER. WAS INFORMED LATER IN THE DAY BY THE DEALER THAT THE AC COMPRESSOR HAD SEIZED UP AND RUINED THE SERPENTINE BELT AS WELL. THEY DIDN'T HAVE THE PARTS TO FIX IT WHICH RESULTED IN HAVING TO RENT A CAR FOR 5 DAYS TO RETURN HOME AND BACK TO PICK UP VEHICLE ON SATURDAY. LATER FOUND OUT THERE WAS AN EXTENDED WARRANTY ON THE COMPRESSOR FOR 5 YRS/60K MILES WHICH MEANT THAT THERE WAS NO COVERAGE ON MY VEHICLE SINCE IT WAS 7 YEARS OLD EVEN THOUGH IT HAD ONLY 49K MILES ON IT. TOTAL COST WITH TOWING, THE CAR RENTAL AND REPAIR WAS $1667. THEY ALSO "FOUND" THE STARTER WAS BAD AND A BLOWN FUSIBLE LINK FOR WHICH THEY CHARGED ANOTHER $648. I THINK THEY CAUSED THE STARTED AND FUSIBLE LINK DAMAGE TRYING TO START THE VEHICLE WITH THE SEIZED UP AC COMPRESSOR AS I NEVER HAD ANY PROBLEM WITH THE STARTER BEFORE AND DIDN'T ATTEMPT TO START IT AFTER I HAD PULLED OVER AND TURNED ENGINE OFF.

PRIOR TO THIS DATE, WHICH LEAD UP TO THE LAST INCIDENT, UPON GETTING THE FIRST FEW OIL CHANGES, AT A DEALERSHIP WHERE I PURCHASED THE CAR, THE ENGINE BEGAN TO SOUND LIKE A TRUCK (OIL USED WAS NOT SYNTHETIC AND I WERE SCHEDULED TO COME BACK IN 5-MONTHS). WHEN I INQUIRED ABOUT IT, I WAS TOLD, "THAT WAS THE WAY IT WAS SUPPOSED TO SOUND". AFTER THAT COMMENT, I CHANGED TO ANOTHER DEALERSHIP FOR SERVICE. THE KNOCKING CONTINUED, TO THIS DAY, STILL. OVER THE YEARS, THE SYSTEM LIGHTS WOULD COME ON PERIODICALLY (PASSENGER AIR BAG, CHECK ENGINE LIGHT AND TIRE SENSOR) AND THE COOLING FANS WOULD RUN AFTER YOU TURNED THE CAR OFF. MOST TIMES, THEY WOULD RESET THEMSELVES. MOVING ALONG, RECENTLY ON 07/15/14, I WAS RETURNING HOME FOR THE EVENING AND THE CAR SHUT DOWN ON ME. THE STEERING CONTROL WAS HARD BUT I KEPT IT FROM CRASHING THE WALL ON LINCOLN DR. AS I FLAGGED THE TRAFFIC TO PROCEED, I WAS ABLE TO START THE CAR ONLY TO ADVANCE TO THE END OF THE DRIVE. BEFORE I REACHED HOME, THE CAR SHUT DOWN 5-TIMES. FINALLY REACHING HOME IT SAT UNTIL I WERE ABLE TO GET IT TO ANOTHER DEALER, CLOSER TO HOME. HOW ABOUT, THE ENGINE IS SHOT, THE RADIATOR HAD A LEEK, I KNEW NOTHING ABOUT AND THE DEALER SAYS, "IT WILL NOT START, NOW". I DROVE IT TO THE DEALER. OIL LIGHT WAS ON AND SMELLING AS IF I BURNED SOMETHING, WHILE IT KNOCKED. CHECK ENGINE LIGHT AND PASSENGER AIR BAG LIGHT WERE ON WHEN IT CUT-OFF, AS I PULLED INTO THEIR DRIVEWAY. I RESTARTED THE CAR FOUND A PARKING SPACE. ONCE THE IGNITION SHUTDOWN, THE COOLING FANS CAME ON. DILEMMA, I LEASED THE CAR NEW IN 2007. I BOUGHT IT, WITH PRESENT CAR PAYMENTS UNTIL 2016, IN 2010. THE DEALER REQUESTS THE ENGINE AND RADIATOR TO BE REPLACED. THERE IS NO WARRANTY, ESPECIALLY AFTER 100,000 MILES AND I HAVE SCRAP ON MY HANDS. WHERE DOES ONE GO FROM HERE AS MAZDA USED TO BE REPUTABLE? THE ENGINE SHOULDN'T HAVE ANY PROBLEMS BEFORE 200,000 MILES.
