2005 Mazda RX-8 Manual 4dr Coupe (1.3L 2rtr 6M)


The car draws positive comments and looks from everyone passing by. Many people ask what car it is, and say how much they like the look of the car. Handles like a dream even in high wind with the limited slip differential. Power to spare, incredible comfort. There is a great sound system, and fantastic safety features. The seats are amazingly comfortable, and a "cockpit" style dash presents all information so it's easy to see. The digital speedometer is excellent for the quick glance - and necessary - it's hard to tell how fast you may be going! Quiet ride. The back seats are a major asset - it's a "family sports car"! Great car - you have to experience it to believe it.

Best Features

Excellent handling. Plenty of power when you need it. Very comfortable seats, well designed interior. Plenty of leg room in front. Love the two back seats and plenty of trunk space.

Worst Features

If you have the manual transmission, your elbow bumps tall cups in the cup holder under your elbow. But compared to all the benefits - no problem!
