2005 Mazda RX-8 Automatic 4dr Coupe (1.3L 2rtr 4A)
I love this car. I wanted a fun car that loves to drive as much as I do and I found it! I have one daughter who has plenty of room in the back with her own storage. She is thrilled about that. It handles beautifully especially once it kicks in. It was a little hard to get used to the feel of the rotary engine. it felt different to me. I love the small rear doors, which lends to easy access without the confines of a four door sedan. The only thing I would change in the center console which extends form the front all the way to the back, making exiting form the back difficult if not impossible if you open the opposite door. Overall- a definite 9.9! :)
The BOSE radio, it is killer! Awesome sound. I love the speed and handling. It does not feel like it is "thinking about it" when you step on the gas!
Break-up the rear console and increase gas mileage. I'll take the handling and performance and comfort of the interior cabin over those any day though. A definite keeper!
