1991 Mazda RX-7 2dr Hatchback


Review

What a car! I have owned this car for a little over two years and have been nothing but satisfied with this little rocket. This car loves to drive on the highway. Acceleration from a dead stop is not so great but once on the move it turns into a rocket. The rotary engine is an amazing piece of technology. This car only displaces 1.3L but makes rediculous power. The lightweight almost perfectly balanced RWD coupe gets decent gas mileage for a sports car averaging about 20-21 mpg with 65% highway and 35% city driving. Parts can be pricey but if the car is maintained properly not many problems arise. If any engine work is needed for any reason dont bring to local mech. find a rotory mech.


Favorite Features

Very rare, especially in New England! High RPM rotary engine with 5 speed trans. produces great acceleration. Can compete with many new cars utilizing a higher displacment four cylinder engine. Interior styling very nice for early 90s. Open engine compartment makes working on car easy.


Suggested Improvements

Overall very nice automobile that gets looks and turns heads cuz no one knows what it is!

Review

I have owned a 91 n/a rx7 for over a year now and have fallen in love. For such a small engine it packs a punch. Handling is great, acceleration is outstanding considering engine size, manual transmission a must if performance is required. Will out perform many new cars and almost all unmodified 4 cylinder and some 6 cylinder cars. No major repairs yet, just basics such as brakes, plugs and wires, tires, etc. Check and change oil regularly. As long as maintenance is performed when or before schedule its an excellent car.


Favorite Features

Its a Rotary! 50/50 weight ratio, 8000k rpm redline, rare car everyone asks what it is! Blast to drive and everyone wants a ride.


Suggested Improvements

16" wheels would have helped but no major changes needed. Would like the turbo model!

Review

This car a been extremely reliable for the entire time I've owned it. It now has 215,000 miles, and has only a little more than maintenance done. It did have to be repainted, due to peeling, which is fairly common on white cars from that time period (not just Mazdas).


Favorite Features

I like the way gauges and controls are laid out. And of course, it's a rotary car.


Suggested Improvements

Put a Racing beat exhaust, K&N air system, use an aluminum turbo II hood as a fresh air hood, and if you're feeling froggy about it, do the injectors and fuel pump. Zoom Zoom!

Review

I've always admired Rx-7's! These cars are fashioned after good old high revving race car engines.The car is a blast to drive. The car seems to want to go faster even after reaching the 6 - 7 thousand rpm range. Acceleration is a very quick on this car, especially when you have the rpm's up.I just wished the car came with a larger tank....:)The fact that it's a rotary engine shouldn't scare you, there are many Japanese auto shops that would love to work on a car like this, at least from my experience.


Favorite Features

My favorite features on this car would have to be the ease in the way it handles, the way it excelerates and the sound of that rotary engine!..nothing else sounds or feels like it.


Suggested Improvements

Suggested improvements would have to be is to ditch the OE intake so this engine can breathe.The other improvement would have to be is to go with larger wheels ...17 " would do much better on this car.

Review

Great car to drive, very comfortable, quick and great around the corners. Fuel economy is decent on the highway for a sports car. The 1991s are hard to find, but will treat you right if you take care of them.


Favorite Features

8000 RPM Redline Sunroof
