1987 Mazda RX7 GXL 1.3L rotary from North America
A crappy car
My radiator is shot, so it overheated like crazy. Had that replaced and somehow the gauges stop working.
A/C doesn't work at idle, which sucks because I live in a hot climate.
Leather is a pain to have during the summer months. Cheap interior.
This car is the worst car ever. I would not recommend this car, unless you are made out of money. Parts are expensive. If you're looking for reliable transportation, buy a HONDA!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Buy a honda? Sure buy a front wheel pseudo sports car for people who think they are driving one!
The RX7 is a real rear wheel drive car... with a unique rotary engine... this is not a comfortable car, nor luxury.. this is a pure sport car!
The honda are more reliable, for sure, I had one and never service it! but I wasn't happy with it, it was too common.
I have owned a RX7 Series 4 for 20 years now, and generally a fun car that really hasn't dated in its performance or styling.
Unfortunately, like many 20 year old cars, after about 12 years, the car needs money slowly spent on it. From a new block at 130klms, new turbo, alternators. The car also leaks oil and water and other such fluids, and are very difficult to access and cure. But nevertheless, I have always enjoyed driving this car, and it still get plenty of looks.
