Summary of Complaint

BOTH REAR TAIL LIGHTS LOOKED CLOUDY AND THE RED COLOR OF THE REAR LIGHTS APPEARED WHITE. I REMOVED THE LIGHT BULBS, THINKING THAT MAYBE THEY HAD BURNED OUT. I NOTICED THE LIGHT BULBS HAD MELTED THROUGH THE INTERNAL RED PLASTIC LENS OF THE TAIL LIGHT ASSEMBLY AND LEFT A HOLE ABOUT THE SIZE OF A QUARTER THAT ALLOWS THE WHITE LIGHT FROM THE BULB TO SHINE THROUGH. THE MELTED PLASTIC WAS ALL OVER THE BULBS AND THERE WAS A BURNT PLASTIC ODOR. THE 7743 BULBS WERE BOTH ORIGINAL TO THE CAR FROM MAZDA WHEN I PURCHASED THE CAR NEW IN JULY 2009. I NOTIFIED MAZDA CORPORATE AND THEY HAD ME TAKE IT TO MY DEALER. THEY INSPECTED THE LIGHTS AND SAID MAZDA WAS WILLING TO OFFER A $500 GOODWILL TO REPLACE THE TAIL LIGHT ASSEMBLY. THAT WILL NOT COVER THE COST OF $1226.77 WITHOUT LABOR TO HAVE THE DEALER REPLACE THE TAIL LIGHTS. THEY GAVE ME A CASE REF# 1-174187018. THERE SHOULD BE A RECALL FOR THIS ISSUE AND THE CONSUMER SHOULD NOT HAVE TO PAY TO GET THE LIGHTS REPLACED. THIS IS A PROBLEM WHEN THE LIGHT BULBS BURN THROUGH THE PLASTIC TAIL LIGHT ASSEMBLY. THIS IS A DESIGN FLAW.

I WAS INFORMED THE TURBO NEEDED TO BE REPLACED AND WAS ADVISED THAT THE CAR WAS UNSAFE TO DRIVE AND THAT I NEEDED TO GET A NEW CAR IMMEDIATELY. THE DEALERSHIP WAS HESITANT TO LET ME LEAVE IN THE CAR AS IT COULD STOP WORKING AT ANY TIME AND BECAUSE I DO A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF HIGHWAY DRIVING THIS IS PARTICULARLY ALARMING. NO REMEDY WAS OFFERED AND I WAS TOLD IT WASN'T WORTH REPAIRING. THIS IS A KNOWN ISSUE WITH THE CX-7 AND A DANGER TO THE DRIVER AND OTHER DRIVERS AROUND WHEN THE CARS STOP WORKING DUE TO THE ISSUES WITH THE TURBO. A RECALL NEEDS TO BE ISSUED IF SO MANY PEOPLE ARE HAVING THIS ISSUE WITH SERIOUS SAFETY CONCERNS.

Summary of Complaint

WHILE DRIVING DOWN THE INTERSTATE, VEHICLE LOST MUCH OF IT'S ACCELERATION, AND BEGAN MAKING A LOUD WHINING NOISE. PULLED OFF THE HIGHWAY AND INVESTIGATED THE NOISE. IT WAS A LOUD WHINING THAT ONLY OCCURRED IN NEUTRAL AND PARK OVER 2500 RPM AND WITH ANY ACCELERATION WHILE IN GEAR. ALSO NOTED YELLOW FOAMY OIL ON THE DIPSTICK WHICH WAS 4.5 QUARTS LOW BEING VERY CLOSE TO TIME TO GET A CHANGE. TOWED TO THE SHOP TO DISCOVER THAT THE VEHICLE IS BURNING OIL AND THE TURBO HAD GONE BAD. MECHANIC SUSPECTS THAT THE TURBO GOING BAD IS WHAT WAS MOST LIKELY BURNING OIL AND RETAINING WATER IN THE CRANKCASE. *TR

Summary of Complaint

STARTING HEARING A NOISE INITIALLY--NOT SURE WHERE IT WAS COMING FROM BUT THOUGHT IT WAS INTERNAL TO THE ENGINE. TOOK IT TO THE DEALER FOR INSPECTION AND THEY VERIFIED THAT THE FRONT OF THE ENGINE WOULD HAVE TO BE REMOVED TO REPLACE THE DEFECTIVE PART. I CAN NOT REMEMBER THE PART NAME BUT IT WAS CLEAR FROM THE DEALER REP THAT MY CAR WAS ONE OF MANY THEY HAVE REPLACED. I SPENT $1244.00 IN REPAIRS ON MY VEHICLE THAT THE MAZDA DEALERSHIP ACKNOWLEDGED WAS A FACTORY DEFECT ON MY CAR AND MANY OTHERS. JUST NOT RIGHT *JS
