Hi, we bought Mazda Cx-7 grand touring [VIN# last 8 digits: 70103229] used car during oct 2014 in fremont. The car had around 84k miles. We spent around $13k thinking good fit for kids school drop in short distance. Hardly used < 9k miles in 2 years. Timely service has been done. However, recently seeing check engine light on with code p0303 [engine-3] missfires. Replaced spark plugs, perform fluid system cleaning, replace throttle body spending close to $1500+. Check engine still stays on even after this¿. Now fremont Mazda dealer recommending to replace the engine [which costs around $9k]. Later did some study on web and learnt that Mazda Cx-7 is very well known for this issues and that is the reason Mazda has discontinued the Cx-7 model knowing internal turbo related issues. Customers buy cars based on search and reliability considering long term usage [like other cars which runs more than 150k miles] and not expected this. It¿s pain to see not hardly used 10k+ miles even after spending $15k. Mazda should accept their engine design issue and do some credit to lost costumer. To keep this customer [me] with Mazda, Mazda should refund the total customer expenses and allow him to by new Mazda latest version by paying difference amount. Have attached recent documents from fremont-Mazda dealer for your review and support. Highly appreciate your understanding and helping the customer.

In the last 2 months I've had issues with the airbag system light illuminating on the dash and also the passenger occupancy light not illuminating at all. I then have a check engine light on and had it diagnosed and it is the thermostat that is not working properly. The tech at the auto shop said that this is extremely common with Mazda Cx-7. If that is the case, why has it not been recalled? I have read through hundreds of articles online stating the same issues with the airbag system and the thermostat.
