2005 Mazda RX-8 Automatic 4dr Coupe (1.3L 2rtr 4A)
I have a 2004 RX-8 & it's the worst car I've ever had. I had an RX-7 for years & loved it; sadly the RX-8 does not come close for several reasons. The car has broken down (and been towed) 5 times in the last few months - the car floods itself! This past week the car began to shake violently - the end result being it needed new left and right motor mounts installed. The heat did not work this winter and 3 months later I'm still waiting for a back-ordered part! The only saving grace not having heat was that I couldn't use the car in the first place because the slightest dusting of snow on the ground renders the car inoperable. Long story short, it's fun to drive but TOTALLY unreliable.
