2005 Mazda RX-8 Automatic 4dr Coupe (1.3L 2rtr 4A)

Review

I owned this car for 26 days when, like many of the reviews I am now reading say, it stopped cold. Not only was I uninformed about the fact that this can happen secondary to "flooding", I was not told of a safety recall at the time of purchase. 6 days later I am still waiting to get my car back from the shop. My last car I had for 12 years without a problem, this one for less than one month and it breaks down and leaves me stranded. VERY frustrating. It also does not drive very fast (the automatic). At times when I'm merging on the freeway, I feel like I'm driving a big boat. I much prefer the Toyota Corolla I now have as a rental car!

Favorite Features

Interior and exterior design, price.

Suggested Improvements

Make a reliable car, repair recall parts BEFORE selling the car.
