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

Review

Love the looks and performance of this automobile. Interior accommodations are very nice and high quality. I have been looking at these autos for the last three years and finally took the plunge and found a low mileage 05. Prices appear to be falling and the car doesn't appear to have the residual that I thought it would, Seems folks might have been scared off by the less than ideal mpg and high octane requirements. All in all this is an excellent vehicle that performs beautifully, looks outstanding, handles like a slot car and has good Japanese quality.

Favorite Features

Rear seat access. A practical sports car. Turbine-like performance and slot car like handling.

Suggested Improvements

Fuel economy - if a 5+ liter American v8's can pull 18-25mpg, I'd expect the Japanese to be able to find a way to get 20+mpg out of a 1.3 liter rotary.
