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!!!!!
It is beautiful, I love it.
Better fuel economy would be
nice....but it's a minor complaint.
2004 Mazda RX-8 Automatic 4dr Coupe (1.3L 2rtr 4A)
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.

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

With the right snow tires, this car is
proving to be a great year-round
