2005 Mazda RX-8 Manual 4dr Coupe (1.3L 2rtr 6M)

Review

I traded in a Maxima SE for this car because I wanted something fun to drive. The RX8 delivers in the fun department. Enough can't be said about the 50/50 weight distribution and the rotary power curve. It is not the most practical car, however, having low gas mileage and limited cargo space. As with any car in this category, consider that you may need a second car/truck to accompany this very fun vehicle.

Favorite Features

Turning and accelerating - pushing the G's to the limit - just be careful not to make your passengers sick. Suicide doors are nice. You can carry a lot more in this car than you might think. It's a good compromise of a daily driver and a true sports car.

Suggested Improvements

Interior is too simple. The center console is cheap and it's hard not to put weight on it getting in and out of the car. More low end torque.
