Warranty

The CX-7 comes with Mazda's three-year/36,000-mile basic warranty. In addition to the basic warranty, CX-7 owners get a five-year/60,000-mile drivetrain warranty and three-year/36,000-mile roadside service.

Newsday notes that "Consumer Reports generally finds Mazda's vehicles average to much better than average," which it finds "encouraging." However, what's not encouraging is the reviewer's note about Mazda dealerships, which already number low compared to other vehicle manufacturers. Newsday notes that "what they lack in numbers, Mazda dealers don't seem as a group to make up for with superior customer service; J.D. Power and Associates, the market researchers, rank Mazda dealers way below the industry average."
