Almost Perfect
By TheBark on


2006 Mazda RX-8 Manual 4dr Coupe (1.3L 2rtr 6M)


Fun to drive and I actually fit into it, the RX8 is an almost perfect sports car. There are a few things quality wise that could be improved (why are the visors still an issue going into the fourth production year?), but overall, it's a combination of sportiness and practicality, not to mention superb handling, that makes this such a great vehicle. And unlike those hideous Mustangs, you don't see one at every stop-light which is something of a plus, too.

Best Features

The MT6 GT package allows me to put the seat into a position I find comfortable. The styling, suicide doors, keyless entry, Bose Audio, are also favorites.

Worst Features

Some of the exterior finishing could be improved (too much plastic), but at least the aesthetics are good. Most complaints have been mileage and torque, so better performance here would be suggested as well, but honestly, if you know going in what the car is all about, you shouldn't be disappointed
