Great 3rd Car
By MI-Mazda on
2005 Mazda RX-8 Manual 4dr Coupe (1.3L 2rtr 6M)
I loved this car for the first six months. The handling is phenomenal. Convinced my wife that it was practical for our family b/c it was a 4 door. However, this car is undriveable in winter, and thus, remains parked for nearly 4 months of the year here in Michigan. If I could, I would keep it as a third car to drive for fun. It just isn't practical for me as a daily driver.
Cockpit feel to the interior. I actually got my pilot's certificate after getting this vehicle b/c it got me thinking how much faster I could go & I quit getting sweaty palms no matter how fast I took it into corners.
The dipstick location is idiotic considering how frequently you are supposed to check the level.
