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


I bought this car used 15 months ago. For the money, it's hard to imagine a car that offers the combination of spirited driving, mechanical quality, and inspired style. I also see no more than two RX-8s per month driving in the Chicago area. It's sweet to drive a rarely-seen car among all the bland brands. The car has a cool factor that usually comes with cars twice the sticker price. The only negatives? The paint chips easily and the gas mileage stinks. I knew that going in, though.

Best Features

Styling, value, high rev rotary, the smile on my face every time I approach.

Worst Features

A little better gas mileage.
