As a rotary owner myself, I’m going to say rotary owners.

We like cars that definitely aren’t mainstream. We have to listen to a lot of rotary hate; some of it is deserved, and some of it isn’t. We can’t help that dumb owners 20 years ago didn’t take some of Mazda’s suggestions to heart and helped exacerbate some of the rotary’s inherent flaws. Some of us act like the rotary engine is superior. It isn’t, and those rotary owners aren’t doing us any favors. Many of us have an inferiority complex anytime someone swaps a non-rotary into a rotary chassis.

And to top it all off, the last rotary in North America was the RX-8, with an engine that had so many problems, Mazda had to retroactively extend the warranty to alleviate concerns and to avoid a PR nightmare (Narrator: It was still a PR nightmare).

They’re fun, unique, but somewhat temperamental cars that can be a pleasure to own as long as you take the proper precautions. We need to stop worrying about if there is ever another one and just enjoy the ones that are there.
