2004 Mazda RX-8 Automatic 4dr Coupe (1.3L 2rtr 4A)


I bought my '04 RX8 in Feb of 2009 with 33k miles on it. It's now almost Nov 2009 with 41k on it. This car has been absolutely amazing (despite gas mileage). The rotary engine is a very high maintenance though, I was told by a Rotary Specialist, to let my car warm up to where it is idling at 1k rpm, and let it idle for 15-30 seconds before shutting it off (of course never shut the car off when its cold), and I have not had one single issue. The handling is great, I got a K&N short ram cold air intake which makes the biggest difference, so much louder then stock, you would be surprised. Got an extended warranty til 2014 (highly recommend that). This car is great if you maintain it properly.

Best Features

Comfortable, the looks (Exterior and Interior), Smooth ride, handling, heated seats, 4dr coupe.

Worst Features

Gas mileage, some rattling at high rpm, condensation in tail lights (had to re-seal them myself). More power in low rpm.
