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


I bought this car new in '05 and have put 20,000 miles on it so far. I love this car! My only negatives are constantly having to check the oil and if you shut the car off and it didn't warm up, you are in big trouble! I've have to have it towed to the dealership because of this! Always let the car warm up before shutting it off!

Best Features

Handling, very comfortable, awesome stereo, excellent night visability. Everything in and out of the car is quality! Love the dimming rearview mirror! Super fast!

Worst Features

The fickleness of a rotary engine, gas mileage, and babysitting the dipstick. Side mirrors should have been larger, and rear visibility very difficult.
