3 Year Owner with 80K miles

2004 Mazda RX-8 Automatic 4dr Coupe (1.3L 2rtr 4A)
I've owned my RX8 for 3 years now. I'm a rotary enthusiast, owned RX7's and work on RX's of all sorts. First off, this car is an amazing machine as far as handling and value for a very affordable price. However, before you buy make sure you know what you're getting into. Like most rotaries, this car is temperamental, it WILL be high maintenance and its important you know that. Acceleration is good for a stock car but modding this car with simple bolt ons will do NOTHING. Major dollars are involved if you want to go faster. Overall, I'm a very happy owner, I plan to keep this car when its paid off and turn it into a track car.
Great looks, awesome interior, turns heads everywhere.
32K car, no auto climate control? Even the speed3 has that! Not a fan of the altezza looking tail lamps. Side port Renesis motor makes for carbon build up issues (2006 engine recall), return to the bottom mounted exhaust ports for reliability purposes.
