Spending 12 k in maintenance in 1 year sounds like you bought a bad car, I've owned my RX8 and countless other rotary's over the years and not had those issues. If it was a motor issue e.g. carbon build up that blew a seal (the cars covered till 100k miles thru Mazda all 04's). Own a sports car is expensive either way I do agree and the MPG are low but it's a Rotary so it's to be expected. But for 12 k I could get a 3 rotor turbo set up built so I tend to believe you either wrecked the car or something else in which you didn't post.Report it
