Nightmare

Constant (expensive) issues! It's like the car was fitted with parts purchased from a $2 shop. The car spends more time at the mechanics than my garage. The inconvenience, financial strain and stress this car has caused me and my family is unbelievable. Have reached out to Mazda several times about it and they don't care (didn't even bother responding to my last written correspondence to them). Was quoted on Monday that the latest repair would cost $2700 (shock me). That was the final straw so in the market for a new car. Will never buy a Mazda ever again! Show details

Excellent vehicle

Have owned a cx7 2006 2 3 turbo. Awesome vehicle for everyday use. No issues so far done 108000km on the clock bought secondhand. Bit thirsty on gas. But that is to be expected from a turbo Show details

Amazing Cx-7 Turbo

First bought 170,000km 2nd owner, maintenance & service history was excellent reliable. Until another 10,000km driven around, the turbo was leak oil, sludge pipe, turbo shaft play. Replace upgraded new turbo, and few upgraded modifications in it, and then perfect running. Smooth driving, love entertainment Bose system, luxury interior is amazing. Love Japanese designed CX7. Always update with maintenance, keeping check oil and coolant level in every fortnightly while wash a car after. Show details

Great SUV, saved us few times

We bought Mazda CX-7 (2.2L petrol) In 2016 (used car) and used regularly, driving interstate too. The car is easy to drive, powerful, fast to speed up, boot space is good to transport your stuff (a couple with no kids), but thursty. Had filled the tank twice from Sydney to Melbourne. Serviced only in Mazda centre. No worries over a 3 year ownership, just changing oil, tires and brakes once. We had some minor oil leaks, mechanics couldn’t fix the issue, but it was not affecting anything else. Car is highly reliable, delivered us safely in one day from GC to Sydney with almost dead battery. Trip From Sydney to Adelaide was also a delight. Great car, fell in love with Mazdas. Show details

Love this car

I bought mine a year ago, a very good car when it comes to speed, design and engine performance. Being fuel-thirsty beast is the downside of this midsize suv. I drove it interstate for 4 times but still doing great. Never had any big issues with the engine since i bought it. I always make sure services are all up to date. Show details

Reliable

I bought my Mazda CX7 Turbo Diesel 5 years ago. Still love it. Economy on fuel, roomy and comfy inside and still not very old look outside.
Very powerful engine and reliable steering and break system.
Have never had any issue with it. Show details

CX& all good

Bought a Cx7 from a lady in Australia with 50k on the clock. White 2.5 litre I have since put 150K on it without a hassle. 220K on the clock going exceptionally well. Have spent almost zero on it save for tyres and rear brakes. Its not a turbo.... anyone who buys a turbo deserves to have issues. Show details

Never Ever !!

I'm still having this failure machine. It breakdown after 4 days I bought from dealer. Hard to find spare parts, Turbocharger is worst design Mazda ever done it since they build company. I spend more than half price to fix it but still has some problems on it. Don't buy never think of it. Don't fool oneself with cheap precises on market there is a reason why it's so cheap. Because you need to spend half of it to use only few more months.

My case also did not solve by dealership even tough I have 5 year warranty. They are so lazy to fix this problems. 2 months already past and I'm waiting my car. Show details

Pretty good SUV,

Not a bad all round SUV.. as others have stated, it is a very thirsty unit, but it is turbocharged so that’s the price you pay for performance. What I don’t get is all the bad reviews abs negative comments on here from owners who have had to replace things.. timing chains are a maintanence item.. turbos will need to be replaced.. cars will develop oil leaks that need repairing,.. it’s not just CX7’s.. all cars require repair and maintainence.. there wouldn’t be any mechanics around if cars were perfect. If you are paying 6,7,8 thousand dollars for a repair at Mazda.. se another mechanic,. You don’t have to go through Mazda if you can save a few grand.. honestly I’m shaking my head and wondering what these people are thinking...
