You'll Like The 2007 Mazda CX-7 If...

If you're the type who prefers a sport coupe to a station wagon, but the realities of family life negate owning an MX-5, the CX-7's roomy rear seat, optional all-wheel drive and seductive good looks present a workable compromise.

I love that it consumes less gas.

My vehicle is very reliable, meets all my needs. It helps me save money since it does not consume much gas even though I drive long distances to and from work everyday. My vehicle is also very convenient with enough interior space. I also love the fact that the interior looks so nice and well arranged in making.

The car is a bit much but it is my baby.

I had some engine and timing belt issues, my check engine light is on all the time even though nothing is wrong with it. My traction control system turns on randomly. The gas mileage is a bit rough and gas is spend. The car itself is zippy and great, gets me from point A to B. Pretty smooth going.

A car is a car. I hate driving and avoid it whenever possible.

My car gets me where I want to go. It has been mostly reliable. Routine maintenance. It starts when I turn the key it stops when I step on the brakes. A car is a car. There is not much to say. I am not a motorhead. The only thing I care about a car is it gets me where I want to go and back again.

Summary:
Mazda North American Operations (Mazda) is recalling certain model year 2007-2012 Mazda CX-7 vehicles manufactured February 14, 2006, to May 9, 2012. In the affected vehicles, water may enter the front suspension ball joint fittings. If the water is contaminated with salt, such as from driving on snowy roads that have been treated, the ball joint may corrode and separate from the lower control arm, resulting in a loss of steering control.
Consequence:
A loss of steering control can increase the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Mazda will notify owners, and dealers will replace both front lower control arms, free of charge. Parts are not currently available. Mazda will send interim notices to owners beginning around October 10, 2016. Follow-up notices will be sent when remedy parts are available. As a priority, Mazda will first address all affected 2007-2008 vehicles as well as 2009-2011 vehicles currently registered in Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia.

17V429000
Summary:
Mazda North America Operations (Mazda) is recalling certain 2009-2011 Mazda6, and 2007-2011 CX-7 and CX-9 vehicles. These vehicles are equipped with certain air bag inflators assembled as part of the passenger frontal air bag modules, and used as original equipment or replacement equipment. In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the front air bags, these inflators may rupture due to propellant degradation occurring after long-term exposure to absolute humidity and temperature cycling.
Consequence:
An inflator rupture may result in metal fragments striking the vehicle occupants resulting in serious injury or death.
Remedy:
Mazda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the passenger frontal air bag inflator with an alternate inflator, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin July 24, 2017. Owners may contact Mazda customer service at 1-800-222-5500. Mazda's number for this recall is 1317F.
