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


This is a beautiful car and has a very clever design (I think I was won over by the suicide doors). Not exactly comfortable in the back, but it works. However, this car has been in the shop more than my 65 bug was. The first 6 mo of owning this car was so frustrating with frequent recalls and the car would stall easily. Then we had about 12 months of bliss. Now, at the ripe old age of 2.5 yrs, the car has been in the shop 6 times in 5 months. It has left me stranded (and not because the car was not warmed up). The dealers can't find anything "wrong" with it. I plan to get rid of it in the next month or so b/c I just cant have such an unreliable car.
