"Lots of fun, could be better on gas by now"4.0 starson by tfortier77
Pros: Lots of fun to drive. Doesn't use as much oil as the RX-7's used too. Great handling & just overall fun-to-drive. The suicide doors are handy once in blue moon, they help for insurance costs. The RX-7s had high insurance rates for a 2 door coupe.
Cons: Gas mileage has not improved that much over the years. Cooling fans come on too late, typical of trying to meet EPA emissions. Cup holders are useless, I use them for storage. The 2004-5 models with 4 speeds AT are geared too tall for 3rd and 4th.
Summary: A big improvement for the engine, lots of fun to drive, basically a love-hate relationship.
