Value Writeup

Introduced in 2006, the Mazda CX-7 was Mazda's first foray into the crossover SUV market and was designed on an original platform. Since its debut, the Mazda CX-7 has gained in popularity and competes directly with Honda's CR-V, Toyota's RAV4 and Nissan's Murano. With the choice of two engines and multiple trims, the Mazda CX-7 keeps the Mazda tradition of performance and practicality alive and running. MSRP for the i SV starts at $21,900, with the luxury s Grand Touring beginning at only $31,640.

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.

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.
