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.
Adjustable auto adjusting suspension, rotary engine, geared very well, comfortable seats, great handling.
Parts that don't break all at once at the 15 year mark.
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!
Great engine, Very reliable (1980-1987
GTU most reliable car award),
exceptional handling, beautiful styling,
AUTO-AJUSTING suspension from inside the
cockpit (!!!), this car can't get any
Carbon will build up if you don't rev
engine to 8,000 rpm's daily, car will
flood if only started for a few minutes
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
The wide RPM range of the rotary engine
and the car's amazing handling are my
favorite features. It is not as flashy
as the 3rd generation RX-7, but it is
still a very nice looking car.
To other owners: Upgrade the dual
catalytic converters to a single high
flow rate version from Bonez. Install
new plugs and wires. Get the engine
into stock condition and then consider a
new air intake.
