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


I've owned my RX-8 for just over a year. I love almost everything about the car, except for the fact that it's a Mazda. The car has spend over a month in the shop, mainly due to dealers that don't know anything about the car. The car now has a power problem where it loses power after driving, and 2 different dealers have failed at repairing it, and now they're charging me for diagnosis and rentals, even though they've duplicated the problem. Mazda is no help, the car is a lemon, and they wont stand behind it. I've even filmed the problem for them, and they still say it doesn't happen! Bottom line. Great car, terrible car company, this will absolutely be my last Mazda. Don't buy Mazda!

Best Features

Engine, total package, handling, interior quality, price.

Worst Features

Dealers that know what they're doing. A car company that stands behind it's warranty. Bad resell value because owners are dumping them due to the service problems. Just like the RX-7, the RX-8 will fade into history because the service departments can't support them.
