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

Review

Other than premium fuel/20MPG average, this is a tight, agile, eye catching rocket that seats two like a glove. Lower torque on the low end is offset by electric motor-like acceleration at high rpms. No problems so far. I have the Mazda speed customization, plus stiffer suspension, custom exhaust and 19" 245/35/19 93Y tires.

Best Features

Renesis 10,000+ rpm engine, six-speed trans, suspension, xenon lights, body and interior design, and nighttime instrument illumination.

Worst Features

Needs a turbocharger option.
