Japan's most technically advanced car for its day
Front disc brakes start to warp after prolonged hard use, this is due to the weight/brake size ratio being in favor of cost cutting.
Climate control module started behaving erratically.
The power-to-weight ratio on this car exceeds most Japanese sports cars.
With over 400nM of torque at just 3500rpm, the Cosmo is a mountain pulling freight train when cruising the motorways.
The seating is so comfortable that you can do a 500km trip with ease, turn around & do it all again in a breeze.
Ergonomics are also excellent with everything within easy reach & at the touch of a button.
The Cosmo is a classic touring coupe. It doesn't handle like its RX-7 brother, but a touring car doesn't need to.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
