Problems with Mazda 7
* Hard Shift and Slipping of Automatic Transmission: 6-speed automatic transmission that was built into the 2007 to 2012 model of Mazda 7 was known to be associated with hard shift and slippage of gear, and if you’re faced with this kind of problem, you’re advised to update your automatic transmission software to correct this problem, but if the problem persists the transmission fluid should be removed, dissembled and repaired.
* Squeak or Chirp Noise from The Front of The Vehicle: If you notice such this noise when the car goes on the bump with low speeds, then it’s believed that this noise is usually caused by the front strut mounts and it should be replaced to restore this.
* Vibration while Applying Brake: This could be caused by fault to the front brake rotors, the rotors have to be changed to correct this.
* Noise from the Engine Due to Worn Out Timing Chain: This could be corrected by changing the timing chain.
*AC Compressor Fault: The AC might be blowing hot, and sometimes smoke coming from the engine. One has to replace the AC to check this.
