2004 Mazda RX-8 Manual 4dr Coupe (1.3L 2rtr 6M)


Review

There are faster cars out there. And there are cars out there that might handle a little better. But none of them come close to the whole package that is the RX-8. It is without a doubt the most fun to drive car I have ever owned. It looks beautiful, and even though I've only had it a couple weeks it attracts a lot of attention wherever I go! Way to go Mazda!!!!!


Best Features

It is beautiful, I love it.


Worst Features

Better fuel economy would be nice....but it's a minor complaint.

2004 Mazda RX-8 Automatic 4dr Coupe (1.3L 2rtr 4A)


Review

This car is hot! It drives like silk, so very smooth. The design is an optical illusion, more spacious in the front & rear than it appears. My husband is 6'1" and 230# and has adequate head room in front. It is fast, responsive and holds the road well. On turns, you can actually feel the tires hugging the road. 2 negatives: (1)it does not handle snow well. (2) blind spot looking out the rear and to the right. All in all, I expect to enjoy driving this car for years to come. It is fun, it is practical (as it holds 4 people) and Mazda did a great job creating a "looker" with great intelligence.


Best Features

heated seats dropdown holder for glasses steering wheel controls


Worst Features

Poor visibility over the rear right side

2004 Mazda RX-8 Manual 4dr Coupe (1.3L 2rtr 6M)


Review

After 10 years of driving "sport sedans" (BMW 533i, Audi 100, Audi A6) this car is a remarkable improvement in fun and handling while maintaining the ability to travel comfortably and conveniently with my children. Love the look, feel, and driving experience. Car pulls strong and smooth right up to the red-line. The Renesis engine is amazing. With the right snow tires, this car is proving to be a great year-round driver here in Boston, MA


Best Features

Overall styling, "Freestyle" doors.
