not in the snow

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


Loved the car except I live in Iowa and the car should not and in some cases cannot be driven in the snow. Had problems getting up even the smallest grade when streets were the least slick. Tires are very sticky and that added to handling, but the down side is they only last about 10K miles. Overall loved the car (my third rx) but it had some problems that were too much for me to handle in the winter. Anywhere without snow, this vehicle kicks. Wish they offered a convertible.

Best Features

Looks, ability to get reasonable insurance due to the back seat, the way it is put together is great.

Worst Features

Convertible, maybe different tires for those of us with snow, and either make it a real quick acceleration or improve the gas mileage. Could like with either.
