1990 Mazda RX-7 GXL 2dr Hatchback


I've had two now, and I've loved them
both. The only serious repair concern
involved losing compression in the
engine. It's not a problem that will
kill the car but it can be annoying the
first time.
What a ride. This car hugs the curves,
loves the road, is fun to drive. Great
on long trips, too. OK, so it doesn't
have cup holders. So what. You need
to keep both hands on the wheel to feel
the excitement anyway.
The oil-cooled engine is great in
Southern climates (like mine) and when
you regularly change the oil every
2500 - 300 miles, you have no worries.

Best Features

I love my sunroof, even though it added to the drag; love the pushbutton suspension; even love the cubby holes behind the car's seats. The curves of the body are sleek. The way the cockpit and the seat conspire to envelop you in the driving experience is awesome.

Worst Features

Install a block engine heater if you are in colder climates to avoid decompression. Keep a coat of wax on the car whenever possible--mine has the original paint, and no flecks.
