RX7
Previous | 1 | Next

so, there is an rx7 close to where I live, but the engine isnt working ( I have no idea why, but im going to find out tomorrow when I go take a look at it) its an FB, probably with the 12a engine. As im considering a 924 , should I also consider the rx7? Is the fuel economy that bad?

Fuel is dire.
It likes a drink of oil.

I am not sure there is a better more afforable looking car on the road.

Oh and forgot to add that for the 2000 euros that get me the non working rx7 I can get a functioning 924 with inspection.
But they sound so nice.
And, how fond of oil would it be? I tend to forget to do stuff very easily.

Buy neither and get a 200sx instead. Faster than the Porsche, more reliable than the RX-7 and amazing balance and handling.

There's not a very nice way of saying this, but I don't think you'd get on very well with RX7 ownership. They are cars that require a good level of attention from both the owner and from specialist workshops - if you're only concerned about the oil consumption, you're in for a surprise when it blows its rotor tips and needs a rebuild. And so on.

Find something else mate, seriously.

RX7s are great, I love seeing them on the road, where they're increasingly few and far between. Get it I say! :)

Think high teens mpg at best, no matter how you drive it, and 1L/1000 miles if you're lucky, with the oil consumption.

And then there's flooding worries, cooling issues, and compression issues to be wary of.

Don't get one if you think you can just drive it and not worry about it.

always loved the RX7, looks lovely and very easy to drive sideways everywhere

consumes petrol, oil and rotor tips in equal proportions :(

I would actually like that but for some reason they are very overpriced around here, so no go. :(

Yes, I agree with you. Its not that I wouldnt care about the car ( far from it) its just that I forget about stuff very easily, although a reminder somewhere in the car could work. But yes, I´ve heard about those apex seals, but the thing is, I´ve heard just as many people say that they can be reliable. I ll probably just steer away from it though..

wow. That is bad fuel economy. Unfortunately I really do have to consider fuel economy as it will be my only car. If not, I would probably get one, as they seem nice

I was seriously considering it but Im starting to think they might not be as reliable and economic as I´d want it to be. :(

Completely agree, it looks really nice.. I guess I can forget about it :(

A good engine can be pretty reliable, providing you keep oil topped up, don't let it overheat, warm it thoroughly before thrashing bla bla. Fuel economy is pretty dire but you don't care when you drive it hard. Sublime vehicles IMO.

Calm down Barry

Apologies all, I've had a few too many e numbers..
