I have owned my RX-8 for exactly one month. I know, not enough time to have a unbiased opinion yet...but I will say that this car is the most fun vehicle I have ever driven. The interior is very sharp and all the controls and design are very well put together.
I love driving the manual engine. It has pick up.
I am tall. It is difficult to get in and out of this vehicle. I would suggest that the driver seat be able to push back a bit further and the steering wheel tilt up a bit higher for my comfort and ease of getting in and out of the car.
