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

Review

Do not buy this car.
If you are thinking of buying this car go to the Rx8 forums, everything that can go wrong with this car will go wrong.
This car has been the financial ruin of me.
When I bought it the KBB price was $17k and thats what I paid.
3 years later I tried to trade it in, and was offered $3k.
Bear in mind that it is in better condition now than when I bought it.
Every year I spend at least $2-3k on repairs.
The only luck I have had is the engine seems to be the only one that works, for now.
Thats right $2-3k/year with a healthy engine. The car is crap.
Other cars are just as fun to drive with much lower cost.
Save yourself and run away.

Best Features

When its working it is great fun to drive. But then it breaks.

Worst Features

This car is a heap of garbage the only improvement would be to throw it away.
