2005 Mazda RX-8 Manual 4dr Coupe (1.3L 2rtr 6M)
Researched and test drove several cars before deciding on the 8. GTO, Mustang, A3, G35's, 3 series, S2000, TSX, Tc, etc. None had a better combination of performance, handling, value, room, and looks than the 8. Good power, excellent handling, exceptional 6 sp trans., great brakes, wonderful steering, all make for a perfect 10 in "fun to drive". Gas mileage is below average..but, you knew that. :) Exterior styling is sharp and full of "character" and car is exclusive (not easy in SoCal). Interior is comfortable and well thought out with very good materials. Roomy back seat with good access. Trunk space is generous for a sports car, but the opening is a bit small. Overall, this 8 is The One.
Favorite Features
engine, transmission (6 sp), brakes, steering, ride, exterior styling, interior styling/comfort, suicide doors, exclusivity, fit and finish...PRICE. Oh yeah...and lots and lots of FUN!!
Suggested Improvements
Gas mileage and oil consumption...but considering the type of engine this is (rotary) and all it's benefits (low weight, smooth power, reliablity, etc.), those two things can't be considered too much of a downer.
