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

Review

I've been driving my RX-8 for about two months now...kinda disappointed. Not nearly as fast as my 350-Z. In fact, not even close. Hardly any torque off the line; you have to be in third gear to get any torque but it is impressive once you get going. Interior is kinda cool and Bose audio is very good. Enough room to take 4 people comfortably, as opposed to the Z which was horrible. Gas mileage is a joke; seems like 2 miles per gallon. I would not buy this car if I had it to do over again.

Favorite Features

Bose audio rocks. Appearance package is a must with this vehicle, as well as a rear spoiler

Suggested Improvements

Better fuel economy. More horses under the hood. Wider seats. Spare tire would be nice.
