Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

CarComplaints.com Notes: The 2010 Mazda CX-7 appears to share the same engine defects as the three previous model years: VVT/timing chain failure & turbo failure. The timing chain failure is especially bad with many cars requiring an engine replacement ($9,000+).

In 2011, Mazda began a "Special Service Program" that extended the warranty to 7 years/70,000 miles covering excessive timing chain noise — an early sign of timing chain failure. However coverage under the program requires perfect documentation of all required maintenance with other stipulations. Buyer beware.

We received a safety recall letter 0N July 2016.it says that continued exposure to high levels of absolute humidity may cause the passenger frontal air bag inflator housing to rupture and deploy abnormally in the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the frontal air bag.metal fragments may strike the occupants the vehicle..we call several dealers to fix the bproblem, but they said that the parts were not ready and they were going to call us back..somebody told us that theay were going to give us a rental car while this problem was fixed. Then on October /2016 we received another safety recall letter saying that it is possible that water may enter the front suspension lower arm ball joint fitting during driving. We have called the dealers and they said that the don't have the parts ready.this is our main family vehicle and we don't have any other means of transportation.

"takata recall" received safety recall no. 16V356 July 2016 advising me of the recall. Mazda stated that the parts were not available and that I would receive another notification when parts were available. As of this date I have not received that notice. I did receive safety recall notice no. 9716H "front lower control arms"on Oct. 15 stating that this defect could cause loss of steering. Again Mazda stated that the parts to fix this problem were not yet available and that once they were I would get another notice. I am very disappointed with Mazda and their handling of these recalls. At this point I am afraid to drive this car!! this is just not right!! please check into this and advise me accordingly...my bet is I will not hear from anyone...sorry but that`S the way I feel!! I do hope that I am wrong!!

Two safety recalls (NHTSA#16V-356 & NHTSA#16V-593) stating repairs should be made immediately. Owners to contact dealer for repairs. Beginning in July 2016, closest Mazda dealer has been contacted repeatedly to make these repairs, and I have been told they cannot order parts. Consider this a formal complaint. Owner is attempting to get safety repairs made, and is unable to do so.
