I love my 8

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


I have been looking at the Mazda for the last couple of years. Along with the WRX STi, S2000, 350Z, and Audi TT. I couldn't fit into the TT, so I ended up with the Mazda because of the performance along with the fact that I can live with the car everyday (ruled out 350Z and S2000). I love the way it looks and drives. It is a car that I look forward to getting into and driving to work every day. The rotary is so much fun that I find myself reving it high just to hear it. I do wish it had a bit more low end power though. As far as people complaining about the snow, it is a powerful rear-wheel drive car! What do you expect?

Best Features

The sound of the motor, four doors and back seat, the looks, the every day driveability.

Worst Features

More low end torque. I can't really complain about gas mileage because I knew what I was getting into ... but it would be nice to get a couple of more miles.
