1990 Mazda RX-7 2dr Convertible

Review

The solid, yet nimble road feel, along with a luxurious cockpit, gave it a refined ride that begged for twisty mountain roads. When I put it on the track at Portland International Raceway it tore through the turns with gusto. The caveat was that I'd bought a 10 year old car, with all the wear-n-tear that that implies. Sadly, the clutch completely died on me after only 6 months. In the end, with the dead clutch, maintenance risk and the pressing need for 2 more seats, I traded it in for a Nissan sedan. Sigh.

Best Features

Easy to use folding top; incredibly high redline; inimitable exterior styling; unique rotary "growl"; sophisticated interior

Worst Features

limited low-end torque; maintenance worries of a rotary engine; poor gas mileage; ignition problems; very little luggage space; poor rear-view visibility
