2004 Mazda RX-8 Manual 4dr Coupe (1.3L 2rtr 6M)


I loved my RX8 when I bought it. 2 weeks after purchase I had to replace the purge valve. 1 month later replaced the ignition coils and wires. 1 week later check engine light came on. Had to replace the engine. Recall for oil dipstick allowing water in oil. Guess what, I've got water and metal shavings in my oil. I see engine #2 coming up. All this in only 6 months! Extended warranty highly recommended for this vehicle. Love driving it when it runs! This is not the Mazda for me.

Best Features

Power, design, stereo system, handling.

Worst Features

Get the kinks out of the engine. Technicians need to educate buyers on rotary engine maintenance.
