I guess you are one of the lucky ones. Yes, I know the RX-7 could be very reliable, but there is also the problems with the Rotary engine. I have heard, and seen, too may RX-7s have problems with the turbo and the rotary engine. My friends have invested a lot of money to alleviate some of the problems. Yes, they do start and drive hard, but quite a few out there tend to have problems with the turbo and engine that need to be addressed. They can be very reliable, and are a very nice car to have, but as I've said, money to maintain these cars (maybe get new aftermarket parts to replace some stock parts) is needed.
Being a RX7 owner i would love to hear your reasons why on this. The RX7 is one of the most, if not the most, reliable and long lasting cars you could own. My '87 has tons of race mods, including NOS, and the odom shows 165,745 miles. It starts when i turn the key, runs like a dream, and never complains. My family as a whole has owned many RX7's, and any webforum based on RX7 will tell you that they are in fact almost entirely self maintained.
I agree with this, being an Accord owner myself (2000 SE). I recommend getting an accord, but if you are a car enthusiast, getting an Accord, and most Hondas for that matter, to become a pleasure to drive, takes time and money.
Hmmz, well being a Honda guy myself, if you decide to go the Honda route I would reccomend an Accord over a Civic. I currently have a 2001 Accord Coupe LX 4 Cyl. It's a nice car. Compare the Accords of this year to the Civic's of this year and OMG! Even around the same price region (~$17,000 new) the differences between the car is crazy. While I had my car at the dealership for maintenance they gave me a rental civic. Yuck is all I have to say. Just yuck.
