2007 Mazda RX-8 Grand Touring 4dr Coupe (1.3L 2rtr 6M)
With the wife's permission I went looking for a Miata to replace our 2003 Sequoia. Saw the RX-8, drove it, got it sideways on a suburban, could not stop laughing, went back and bought the car. The only problem is I can't get my wife out from behind the wheel and now must go back and buy her the Miata!! The fuel economy is awful but everything else is wonderful. For a family of three it makes a great family sedan that can carve corners while it goes to the grocery store. It's shiny black form reminds us of the Batmobile and, between it's shape and the angry shriek it makes as it runs up to 9,000 RPMs, it turns heads where ever it goes. BUY IT !!!
The seats are great, it corners flat as if tied to the road, the sound of the high revving rotary engine, the styling, the ride, the 300 watt Bose stereo.
It needs 100 more horsepower and boy does it suck down premium gas!!
