This car is amazing.... It is like no other car I have owned. It is fun, sporty, sexy and fast. It may not be the fastest in a straight line but if you are concerned about that you have missed the point of this car. I live in east TN where there are twisty roads everywhere. This car is as close as you are going to get to perfect handling for the money.
my only concern is gas mileage. mazda really needs to spend some time on this. I understand this engine is in a high state of tune and it is a sports car but averaging 18mpg is pretty sad when you drive mostly highway.
Before buying this car please read the FAQs page on RX8club dot com. there are many things that are unique to this car.
Fantastic handling, Great fit and finish, Cheap insurance! (listed as a 4door 2 cyl 1.3 liter), A true sports car for people that cannot live with a 2 seater....
There is not a single thing I would change about this car.
Gas mileage is pretty poor, but it is a sports car that is a blast to drive... I still love it even if it is thirsty....
