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

Review

I have owned 2 previous rotary engine cars in the past, plus 2 Mustang GTs and 1 Corvette. This car has been great so far. Very fun to drive. Shifts easier than the 2004 Chrysler Crossfire we own. Very rare on the road (unlike Mustangs). Ample power and torque spread across a wide powerband. Gas mileage is mediocre.

Favorite Features

The manual transmission. The smooth revving engine. The Bose stereo system with 6 CD changer and 9 speakers. The front seats. Comments and attention every time I drive it.

Suggested Improvements

IMPROVE gas mileage. A little bit more torque (but as the previous owner of a 96 Vette, this car has ample power).
