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


When I traded in my RSX type-S I thought I would regret it, but I love my RX-8, recalls and all. Yes, it has bad mpg and has to be wound up to move but it is a sports car I that is what one should expect. This is the best ride of any sports car for the money. I only drive back and forth from work with the rare trip out of town, but this car always makes it enjoyable, even though it takes it longer to warm up than drive to work. I would suggest this car to anyone who is looking for more than basic transportation. This is a very enjoyable car that can easily be your only car.

Best Features

The perfect control layout, a car you know you're driving without beating you up. A great look.

Worst Features

Better quality leather, better seals on the tail lights, and more aggressive exhaust note. Also more gauge options.
