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

Review

I have tried to like this car. Looks great. However have had many problems. Replaced both headlight assembly and taillight assembly for moisture problems. Front end, exhaust, brakes have been worked on. Replaced motor mounts, spark plugs, and now transmission. Still have a tapping noise in the engine when in gear. Lots of road noise. Tired of taking it to the dealership. Had a 1993 Mustang that gave me less trouble.

Favorite Features

I like the sporty look of the car. I do not have the poor gas mileage like most. Not great, but average for this type of car.

Suggested Improvements

My gosh...where do I start. Too many things to mention. Just overall better quality.
