2004 Mazda RX-8 Manual 4dr Coupe (1.3L 2rtr 6M)
Review
I am an original owner with now about 29,500 miles on the 2004. Bought with a MazdaSpeed extra stiffening suspension set-up in 2004. I love the car and drive it hard. Its cornering capability for the price can only be matched by a Honda 2000. However, the RX-8 rides SO much easier on your backside that this comparison becomes moot. Do not worry about the "need" for constant oil level monitoring. Just put in a quart every so often. I have had no problems here. Yes - some minor recalls - but everything handled VERY efficiently by local dealership. Gas mileage is not great, but this comes with the territory I think. Cannot beat a 350Z off the line, but get into the mid-range RPMs!
Favorite Features
Cornering ability, rear seat usable, 9000 RPM red-line. Uniqueness.
Suggested Improvements
My 2004 - no automatic thermostated AC.
