Just a few things shy from perfection

2005 Mazda RX-8 Automatic 4dr Coupe (1.3L 2rtr 4A)


Great car. Not impressed with the recall and the flooding problems. Needs a better place for the dipstick, you have to stick your hand down in the engine to get to it. I thought the interior would be more impressive ... my Dodge Neon was about the same when it came to the fanciness. A lot of people lean on that center console to get out because the car is so low, and because it slides open and it's on tracks, it often pops off of track. Maybe get a lift open one instead? The speedometer is a little difficult to read, maybe make it bigger. Gas mileage isn't impressive ... otherwise this car has been very good to me, *knock on wood.*

Best Features

The exterior look, and the acceleration.

Worst Features

Dipstick placement, center console, interior design (looks cheap-ish).
