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


I think 2004 was the only year for "mellow yellow" love the color. The exterior design is sleek, confident, gorgeous. The interior fits perfectly--I'm 5'10", much taller wouldn't work. The gas mileage isn't THAT bad--I average 18 and get 22 on the highway. Driving something that's this much fun. I actually think, "This car is awesome" almost every time I drive it--is worth a few extra mpg. Flooded it once, my bad. No significant repairs in 5 years. Everything original 2004 except tires and breaks. The rotary engine sings like a jet engine all the way up to 8500 rpm. The RX-8 is super fine and super fun. Handling in rain is bad and in snow is downright hazardous.

Best Features

Cornering, sound of engine, seat comfort, headlight beam coverage, shifting

Worst Features

Turbo, convertible, gas mileage, bigger gas tank, traction in rain and snow.
