Handles like a Porsche of the same vintage. very fun to drive. very comfortable sport bucket seats. The engine is very reliable, but the rest of the car isn't. I have had to replace the alternator, battery, brake master cylinder, clutch master cylinder, clutch, wiper switch, radiator, window switches, stereo (I guess I didn't have to), and usual routine maintenance. These cars just reach an age where everything breaks at once. If you get it before this age or after someone has fixed everything, they are very very nice cars that are fun to drive. People will be envious when they hear you have one.

This will have been my third Rx7 and
they are fun little cars, they don't
have the blow away speed but they love
to corner and turn i bought this with
just 44k on it so i will keep this one
a long time.

The rx7 is in my opinion the best car
made to date, and the 1989 to 1991
models are the best. With a 80 inch
1.3L 13B 6-port rotary engine, the sound
and high end can't get better. This is
THE car to have if you plan to
autocross, or if you just like to corner
like that inner maniac. With a 50/50
weight distribution, this is one of the
best handling cars ever. You mold into
the interior, and get the feeling of
being in a jet. This isn't just
driving, just like the owners arent just
owners. We're fanatics!

I would have purchased this car when I
was in high school if I had the money.
Now it is my fun second car for weekends
and playing around. This car has been
very reliable and only required a tune
up and some exhaust work to be brought
back to good running condition. It
needs some work on the intake manifold
(5th and 6th ports), because they are
stuck (works sort of like Honda's VTEC
concept - but the rotary engine has no

I've had two now, and I've loved them
both. The only serious repair concern
involved losing compression in the
engine. It's not a problem that will
kill the car but it can be annoying the
What a ride. This car hugs the curves,
loves the road, is fun to drive. Great
on long trips, too. OK, so it doesn't
have cup holders. So what. You need
to keep both hands on the wheel to feel
the excitement anyway.
The oil-cooled engine is great in
Southern climates (like mine) and when
you regularly change the oil every
2500 - 300 miles, you have no worries.
