love to hate it

2004 Mazda RX-8 Automatic 4dr Coupe (1.3L 2rtr 4A)
I bought my rx-8 in April 09 with 27k. It is now Sept. 09 and i have 34k. I got a great deal on the car and loved the first 2 months i had it. Recently the airbag light came on for 2 weeks and then just shut off. A few days later and a month after an oil change it ran out of oil because the warning light never came on. Now every time i drive it it smells like burning oil, and mazda has no answers to these problems. The brakes squeak horribly and still squeaked after replacement. Heat from the cupholder area is ridiculous,and everything rattles. The stereo for a bose is awful, but the car looks awesome and if u get the clutch perfect in first it will take off pretty fast. Keep it or sell it?
Speed,looks,def handling,the attention,and the sound of the engine at a high rpm.
Better heat insulation, u turn on the a/c and cant feel it because the heat around the cup holder area is way hot, reliability, build quality. hopefully the 2010 is better. But i will never buy another to find out.
