2005 Mazda RX-8 Automatic 4dr Coupe (1.3L 2rtr 4A)
I bought this car yesterday after shopping numerous other coupes/sport coupes and sedans. I compared it to Mustang, Mazda6, Nissan Altima and Maxima, Infinity G-35, and a couple others. I bought the black touring with rear spoiler and all season mats. Sticker $30,600. I paid $26,000 with my trade. A 1994 ford Taurus, probably worth $500. Great deal! What a cool look, car drives like a sports car, has a backseat big enough for my 4 & 11 year old, and rear doors that are easy enough for a small adult/child. The interior is not so luxurious like a loaded Maxima or G35. Not even the GT w/added leather looked that great. I didn't think the leather was worth $1500. Overall a really cool car.
Sport look, backseat, 4 doors, 300 watt Bose, 18 inch alloy wheels, all for a great price. Not so great legroom if youre tall (Im not so it's ok), and even in the Grand Touring the interior isn't so luxurious.
