I would be... my 08 cx7 with 90k mi is sitting at a mechanics with linkage damage and (more than likely) piston/valve damage: there's no pressure. They'll need to tear the engine completely apart to repair. I'd just get rid of it... if only it were paid off. :(

From what we have dealt with. (And I know your post is 6 months old) I wouldn't buy this vehicle. Our issues put us behind.
