2005 Mazda RX-8 Manual 4dr Coupe (1.3L 2rtr 6M)
Great for daily driver or long distance trips. Excellent seats, plenty of storage space, even the trunk has more room than you think. Went on a week long vacation and had plenty of room for luggage and items purchased using the trunk and rear seats. Looked at the 350Z but found that you get a lot more options with the RX8 for the money. Loaded with safety equipment and drives like a go cart. Not the fastest or most powerful car out there but can you really use all that power and speed in the real world and still obey the laws? This car is not for everyone. Rotary engine takes a little more attention than a piston engine. Heard all of the downsides of the rotary but have not had any problems.
Great ride comfort, handling and some of the best brakes out there. Car makes you feel like you are a part of it and it a part of you.
Find a better place for the oil dipstick and try and get a little better fuel mileage.
