MAZDA RX-7 Used Car Review

In 1978 Mazda continued its love affair with the distinctive piston-less rotary engine with the RX-7 - a compact, rear-wheel-drive sports car. The RX-7 combined great handling with the famously smooth and high-revving engine to establish a classic, especially in third-generation guise. Its reputation wasn't harmed by local success in the Bathurst 12-hour endurance race, when it won three successive events from 1992 to 1994.

Pros

Cons

  • Fantastic, high-revving performance
  • Great balance of power, grip, handling and braking
  • Low-rev punch of twin-turbo rotary engine
  • A classic Japanese sports car
  • Rotary engine's thirst for fuel/oil and susceptibility to wear
  • Boot not very practical
  • Second-generation model more GT than sports car
  • Good used examples are fairly expensive

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR: MAZDA RX-7 (1992-1998)

The very last RX-7 was a very potent car and attracted buyers who weren't afraid to use that performance.

So watch out for crash damage and be wary of a car that has been used as a track-day weapon. The giveaways are holes in the floor where a roll-cage was once fitted, a relocated battery, fire extinguisher and extra gauges.

The engine can be a bit fragile, so it would be wise to have a rotary specialist check it out including a compression test. The turbo should also be checked out for wear and an engine that takes plenty of cranking before it fires up could also be showing wear and tear.

Bear in mind that elderly performance cars can be real money pits, but if you score a good one, the late RX-7 is an exciting car to own.
