I love this car but the only problem is, is that there isn't a place that i can buy cheap parts for it. Ebay is overpriced and autopart stores don't sell most parts. so if you know where i can find a cheap driver side window regulator, let me know. Cause its bugging me not being able to roll down my window.

Inherited my XR2 from Dad. He bought it new in '91 upon retirement. Less than 12K! He recently replaced the top. Drivers headlight doesn't pop-up, door locks questionable and interior QC sorely lacking. Otherwise, great shape. Fun to drive; but considerable turbo lag and FW drive, so it really oversteers! Wider, stickier tires and strut brace will help. Nice looking w/ top down but dorky tiny wheels/skinny tires. Looking for 15" 7 spoke rims from '94s. I've a '94 Mazda RX7. THAT's a real sportscar! XR2's more a sporty econobox with soft top. Surprisingly comfortable, roomy and good ride. Easy drop top. Large trunk for a small car. Awesome gas mileage at 30+ highway. Spongy brakes.

When my grandfather passed away a few years ago, i inherited this cut little car. He wasn't big into paying attention to it's needs and was always a cheapskate, so some things aren't in the best shape, but it still going good! I have been trying to restore it to all its original splendor, but its rather pricey to do in high school... This car had kind of a ruuf life, so it doesn't have as much power as it used to, but it gets goin' when you aren't payin attention. haha, great little car!

Wow! I've loved every minute of owning this great little red car. Perfect for local runabout--has always been reliable and trouble free, and loads of fun to drive. Sorry to part with this old friend, but with all the SUVs and trucks on the road, I am not as confident in myself as I used to be. It's time for someone else to enjoy this wonderful auto.

I can't complain at all!! Friends of mine was moving last fall and they had this car sitting out on their field, said it wasn't working. And asked I wanted to have it?! A question answered with a YES! Turned out it was a simple fuse. Definitely a head turner due to the fact few people knows about this car. Still all original, NO RUST!, and with a top not leaking! New tires is on it's way! Arctic White with blue/red stripes. A perfect summer car. Average mpg (doing longdistance driving: 38mpg!)
