Model Highlights

The CX-7's powertrain features a personality that's quite different from what's under the hood of most other utility vehicles. A 244-horsepower, 2.3-liter turbocharged, direct-injected four-cylinder engine connects to a six-speed automatic and delivers power either through front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.

The all-wheel drive system that's available on the CX-7 uses a computer-controlled coupling to send up to 50 percent of power to the rear wheels when needed; the system works well for snowy and slippery roads, and it helps to deliver the turbocharged engine's burst of power more smoothly when road surfaces are slippery.

In keeping with the Mazda brand's sporty image, the CX-7 handles similarly to a sport sedan because its center of mass is kept low. The vehicle's carlike MacPherson strut front suspension and multi-link rear setup soaks up road imperfections. A rubber-isolated front subframe is also used to isolate jarring road impacts while keeping handling response tight.

Large four-wheel anti-lock brakes provide impressive stopping ability and the electronic stability control works in conjunction with the AWD system if so equipped. Safety features on all CX-7s include front side airbags and side-curtain airbags that cover both rows.

Inside, the CX-7 has space for five, with well-bolstered sport seats for front occupants and a back seat that's split 60/40 and folds down to increase cargo space. With the seat down, the cargo floor has 70 inches of continuous surface, with a lip at the front to help prevent objects from sliding into the front seat. Even with the back seat up, the length of the cargo space is an ample 39 inches. The back seat is a bit tight in headroom for some taller adults though due to the swooped roofline. Special attention has been paid to storage spaces inside; the center console is large enough for a laptop, and the there are plenty of cup holders.

The CX-7 comes in three different trims--Sport, Touring, and Grand Touring--each available with either front- or all-wheel drive. Base Sport models come with power accessories, cruise control, air conditioning and a CD/MP3 sound system. Touring models upgrade to heated leather seats, a power driver's seat, and a retractable cargo cover. Grand Touring models upgrade to HID headlamps, fog lamps, automatic climate control, and added chrome trim.

The options list is extensive, allowing buyers to add a wealth of luxury-level equipment. The Technology Package includes a moonroof, nine-speaker Bose Centerpoint audio system, DVD navigation system, keyless start, a Bluetooth hands-free calling system and Sirius Satellite Radio. Remote engine start is offered as a standalone option.


Model News

The Mazda CX-7 gets just a few minor changes for 2009. An auxiliary input jack and MP3 capability are now standard across the entire model line. Leather trim for the steering wheel and shift knob are new to the Sport model, and new side mirrors with integral turn signals plus an auto-dimming rearview mirror are now included with the Grand Touring trim.


Value Writeup

The Mazda CX-7 is a sporty alternative for those shopping for a vehicle with more utility, but will not need to go off-road or do heavy towing. With an engine that's similar to the one that powers the high-performance MazdaSpeed3 and sport-sedan suspension, the Mazda CX-7 has the goods to take on curvy roads. With a curvier, more aggressive design than most other vehicles of its type, the Mazda CX-7 also makes a strong statement on style alone.

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.

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. West Virginia, Wisconsin, and the District of Columbia. The remaining vehicles will be addressed when parts are available. Owners may contact Mazda customer service at 1-800-222-5500. Mazda's number for this recall is 9716H.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
