Don't judge this car by looks alone

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


I own this car and it has not even come close to the expectations I had for it. It looks great. But that is it. Performance is poor, it is slow, and finally it has not been very reliable at all. The starter has been a constant problem in the cold weather. The electrical system has given me problems. The tire pressure monitoring system has given me problems. If I could do it over again, I would absolutely never buy this car again. After my experience with the manufacturer, I will never buy another Mazda for that matter.

Best Features

The look.

Worst Features

Improve the interior materials used. Make the car significantly faster. It is way too slow. I am a great driver and I have not been able to even come close to the 5.9 sec. 0-60 they advertised.
