Don't buy one!!

Vehicle: 1990 Mazda RX-7 2dr Convertible

I bought mine with 90 thousand miles which is quite low for that old of a car. I did a bunch of work on it. New brakes, shocks, which are insanely expensive to put in as they had to tear the rear of the car apart to install them. Parts were crazy, I have BMW and parts are half what I paid for Mazda parts. In the winter when I moved to Portland from Ca. I had a hard time starting it. 10 mechanics later the compression was low on one of the rotors. Car had 129 thousand miles, been babied from day frequent oil changes, etc. Needed a new engine. It was fun to drive when it worked but why do these cars have fans, the engines always burn out and people still love them. I am over it.

Rx7 convertible experiences

Vehicle: 1990 Mazda RX-7 2dr Convertible

I have owned Rotarys on and off since 1978. From the RX2 through several RX7s. My convertible has an aftermarket turbo on it and it not only the most fun car I have ever owned, but also one of the most reliable. If you take care of a Rotary, it will last well over 200k miles. Although gas mileage is not that great, you save in rebuilds and repairs on the car.




You gotta love 'em

Vehicle: 1990 Mazda RX-7 Turbo 2dr Hatchback

Have owned 3 of these, and never owned another car. '86 base, '88 GTU and now my '90 Turbo II. It's a beautiful car on the outside with that perfect sports car look, but nothing too radical that will end up looking dated, even now 20 years after the design inception. The handling is top notch, and with a simple plus size tire and wheel upgrade the next time you need new tires you'll stick to the road like glue. Comments abound on the car, and most people can't believe it is a '90. It's funny how many people think the car is only 5 or 6 years old. Grab a turbo if you can, they are most definitely the most fun of the different versions. I'd love a convertible for the summer.
