2004 Mazda RX-8 Manual 4dr Coupe (1.3L 2rtr 6M)
Bought the car two years ago, was great the first year, because I was 19 and all the looks it got. Now i'm 21 and I am getting very tired of it stalling in 80+ degree weather, and taking over a minute to start the car in the cold (under 30 or so degrees). It is a great looking car, but the pros don't outweigh the cons by any means. I have yet to get over 22 mpg (and have only got that once). I average around 18 or 19 mpg. I bought this car because its the only 4 door sports car, but I am very regretful of my decision. It has lost more than half its value in 2 years. I have no control in the winter and dread waking up and seeing it snowing.
horse, torque, gas consumption, MAJOR engine improvements, Aux plug in (for radio) take the plastic crap off in the engine bc it is embarrassing.
