My RX-8 Review
By Mr Rotary on
2006 Mazda RX-8 Manual 4dr Coupe (1.3L 2rtr 6M)
This is a very fun animal to drive. Performance could be a little bit better on the engine side: there's no torque or power at the lower RPMs until you hit 5k or more. Too bad there's no turbo, I miss the old RX-7s. As with all rotary powered cars, fuel economy is awful. Interior design is really good but the chairs can't recline all the way when I want to lay down and there's no lumbar support. The reason for an 8 on reliability is because I had to bring it in for three different recalls and this thing EATS OIL! Rotary engines consume a lot of oil, I had to add oil to it every 3k miles.
High redline rotary engine, superior suspension, four doors, the way it turns heads ^_^
