Review

Great car! Amazing performance and
handling. Smooth looks and it's a blast
to drive. More expensive maintenance
then a Honda Civic.


Best Features

Speed, looks, handling.


Worst Features

Upgraded to 3mm Apex Seals. Rebuilt Sequentials.

Review

I bought my '93 RX-7 (since sold) in '98
in excellent condition and with few
miles. It's the first car I've owned
that I never got tired of driving or
looking at. It's a tremendous amount of
performance for the money. An ideal
sports car for the driver that wants a
modern car with low weight and precise
handling. I also found it to be quiet
and refined enough for enjoyable
Interstate trips, too (as long as you
don't need to take much luggage).


Best Features

1. Styling -- still looks great after a decade 2. Performance -- both straight-line and through curves 3. Unique engine and low production


Worst Features

It's a complex car that's more challenging to work on than most. Also, some interior pieces were flimsy and easily marred. The early-build '93s had a bunch of irritating problems that weren't serious.

Review

I had two Rx7 both the "r" versions
and they were excellent vehicles...I
bought my first Rx7 93 R1, with 14k
miles on it for $17000.00 back in
97..what a steal, then I sold it a
year later, bad move...I missed that
car so much that I bought another on a
year later...94 R2, Unfortunately,
some scumballs stole my baby 3 years
later, what a loss...I want to buy
another RX7 but I am fearful that it
will be stolen again...to those of you
who own this wonderful car, get a lo-
jack installed, and keep an eye on
your baby :) This is a very desirable
car for theives....


Best Features

body style...sleek, sexy and fast


Worst Features

interior quality, turbo.... BRING BACK THE "7" The "8" is not a suitable replacement

Review

From the first day I fish-tailed out of
the dealers lot, to ten years later, I
have had nothing but joy driving this
racer on my daily commute. The
acceleration through the first three
gears is intoxicating, and causes me to
laugh. No other car provides this
feeling, with the exception of my
brothers 2003 super-charged Cobra
Mustang.


Best Features

Tight lateral grip through the turns, and a fighter-like cockpit, which envelopes the driver. Oh the last part is feeling the boost at 4300 rpms!


Worst Features

Some simple bolt on modifications will provide vast performance improvment, while extending engine life. For example, remove pre-cat, and add cool air induction

Review

Had big problems with Flooding etc,
although that would be the only problem
I had with it, and it's hopeless fuel
economy. I'd definitely buy one again,
but only when I have big money to fix
it when things go wrong. It cost me
$1,200 NZ to just have the beast looked
at to see what was wrong with it.
Quickly brushed it off to a Car Dealer.
=( Warning, do not purchase a Red
Batmobile, with Black 17 inch Enkeii
rims. The car was origanlly Auto, but
may have had a transmission change by
now. This Bat is a Lemon.
