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


I got this car as used one w/ 33k on his back. But it was worth it. First impression wasn't that good about accelerations, but as I learned about rotary engine, that was pretty standard for auto/manual transmission. Which I choose for comfort and pedal shifters kinda looking like in most expensive sports cars. Fact is that fuel economy is that what you expect from sports car... you have to take the power somewhere if you have 1300cc in ultra light sexy looking racer with handling of formule1. I am looking forward for new RX9 in future, for now I may just get newer version w/ six speed transmission.

Best Features

Engine over 4500 rpm, shifters, sunroof, heated seats, brakes (I've got 'red stuff'). Man HANDLING!

Worst Features

Six speed trans. with a clutch for first gear take off. (I just love steering wheel shifters and I can't afford any cars close to 150k.)
