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


I purchased my r-x8 on 5/04.A
mature sports car. If you're a 17 year
old and think a sports car is speed
and thats all,this is not the car for
you. If you understand what a great
sports car is about,then the x-8 is
worth a test drive. True, it is
slow "Off the line" and thats where it
ends. HANDLING (on par, if not better
then Porshce,I know I've drivnen
and especially a head turning
exterior. Oh yeah, room ROOM-and more
ROOM,you can fit 4 6Ft. adults in the
Rx-8 and the x-8 is not longer or
wider than a Porsche 911 !!! Bottom
line, if you want to stand out, the
proof is in the pudding, test drive

Best Features

F-1 paddle shifters ,only on the AT model. Day and night color Tac!!! Exterior !

Worst Features

Constant oil Ch. /More horses. (But,understand you have a 1.8 liter engine producing 200 Horses AT and 238 MT. a 1.8 Piston usually produces 120 Horses.And the x-8 is about 200 Lbs Lighter than its comp. So less horses,but then again, your pushing less wght so your 0-60 or -10O
