Run Away From This Car
By gdcinthebigD on
Vehicle
2006 Mazda RX-8 Automatic 4dr Coupe (1.3L 2rtr 6A)
Review
The RX-8 is a beautiful piece of sculpture but is useless for city living. I love the look of this car and the handling but didn't expect the gas mileage of a Hummer (11 miles per gallon). Mazda says the engine is running correctly. Plus the requirement to make sure the engine is warmed to mid-line before turning it off is ridiculous. In order to run to the store or the post office I have to drive 6 blocks out of my way or wonder if the car will start the next day. I researched this car to death and found little mention of either of these issues. Do yourself a favor - buy something with a piston engine.
Favorite Features
Exterior design - absolutely flawless. Handling is amazing.
Suggested Improvements
Rip out the rotary and put in a piston engine.
