2007 Mazda RX-8 Grand Touring 4dr Coupe (1.3L 2rtr 6M)


Review

I love my car, I just got it 4 weeks ago after I got out of airborne, and it's awesome. The interior is really sport, the Bose sound system is awesome in it, its pretty quick for such a small motor, for the money you can't beat it.


Best Features

The rpm, the engine revs so high and just keeps going, its quick, and the interior is awesome in it.


Worst Features

More horsepower, the car is lacking power on take off, its power banes so high you don't get a big shove off the line

2007 Mazda RX-8 Grand Touring 4dr Coupe (1.3L 2rtr 6M)


Review

I love my RX-8! It is simply a blast to drive everyday. What the rotary engine lacks in low end torque it makes up for with a high revving engine that sounds wonderful. The interior is great - sight lines are excellent and quality is high. It is a very livable car for daily driving, and the rear doors make it quite practical for a sports car. However, if gas mileage is important, this is probably not the car for you.


Best Features

High revving rotary, outstanding handling, high quality interior.


Worst Features

Gas mileage, placement center console cup holders.

Fold down back seats, more cargo space, better gas mileage.

Review

I love everything about the car-looks, handling EXCEPT the total, absolute, complete (get the picture) lack of torque. You really have to beat it with a stick to get it moving. I should have got a V8!


Best Features

Interior quality and comfort, handling.


Worst Features

Power and fuel economy.

2007 Mazda RX-8 Grand Touring 4dr Coupe (1.3L 2rtr 6M)


Review

Four months and 6000 miles into my ownership experience and no issues. I still look forward to every drive. Max. mpg was 19.8 with a minimum of 15.8 on first tank fill, average is about 18 in mixed driving. Low rpm shifts and slower highway speeds should yield about 20 mpg. Torque is low compared to larger displacement 6 and 8 cylinder engines, but comparable to other small naturally aspirated engines such as honda's s2000 and civic si, both of which also have larger displacements. Power builds steadily all the way to its 9000 rpm readline. Handling is very secure, composed and predictable even at its limit. Distinctive styling, inspiring performance, comfortable ride and seating for 4 adults.


Best Features

Rotary smoothness, precise handling, interior design, keyless entry and ignition, exotic exterior styling, low price, Bose audio, rarely seen in area.


Worst Features

More front headroom, stereo inputs and hard drive music storage, turbo option.
