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


I have a 2004 RX-8 & it's the worst car I've ever had. I had an RX-7 for years & loved it; sadly the RX-8 does not come close for several reasons. The car has broken down (and been towed) 5 times in the last few months - the car floods itself! This past week the car began to shake violently - the end result being it needed new left and right motor mounts installed. The heat did not work this winter and 3 months later I'm still waiting for a back-ordered part! The only saving grace not having heat was that I couldn't use the car in the first place because the slightest dusting of snow on the ground renders the car inoperable. Long story short, it's fun to drive but TOTALLY unreliable.

Best Features

Appearance, and handling when it's roadworthy.

Worst Features

Find out the cause of the self-flooding and increase the fuel efficiency.
