    Mazda Rx-8 — Good performance, needs more power, but handling makes up for it. However i have needed to get the transmission replaced twice, and the engine replaced once. Quality maybe an issue. Nevertheless this is one of the most rewarding driving experiences. The car is quite excellent and delivers on all rotors.

    Pros: handling, easy to work on.

    Cons: Gas mileage, and rotary specific issues.

    The Gorgeous Mazda Rx-8 — I love the color on my car, the design, the performance, the interior and the its sound. I just don't like the gas mileage and the fact that it's from 2004. The car is really fun to drive and it is Rear Wheel Drive..i love to drift with it!!

    Pros: Gorgeous in everything

    Cons: Gas mileage

    Mazda Rx-8 = Awesome Fun For An Affordable Price. — I liked how this is the only rotory engine in the market, the power is phenomenal great gear box. Very unique engine sound and smooth ride, it hands very well. The shifter felt really nice,. Starting it may be intimidating because you have to crank the engine longer then usual, also you must rev the engine to shut it off to prevent flooding.Engine is prone to flooding and you have to always keep an eye on your oil, recomended to top it up every second tank of fuel.

    Pros: cool because it is classified as a 4 door, for cheaper insurance

    Cons: Repairs are going to have to be done by mazda, no many mechanics understand the rotory engine.

    My Favorite Car So Far — best handling car ever. not a problem at all goin 30 over twisty corner w/ least body roll. awesome lookin. only problem is the lack of torque, thinkin about doin some FI now. mileage is not reasonably gud, but who cares about that w/ the tremendous fun drivin it. get urself in one of these, n start havin fun doin all the shiftin

    Pros: gud handlin=gud performance

    Cons: more torque would make it perfect

    Mazda Rx-8 — the fact that it is 50-50 weight for front and back witch improves handling and speed, i love the fact that it has a rotory engine , just the noise of it when it revs up to 8000 rpm or higher i love this car and would recomended it to anyone.

    Pros: awsome handling, amazing engein ,  high rpm (louder revs) , gorgeous apperance

    Cons: dosent come with twim turbo stock like rx-7, and is good for speed but coulf be better

    Rx8 Review — Overall the car is nice but has some fatal floors as mazda suggest in thier new mazda6 ads. Build quality is poor and may not suit aussie market. Customer service from MAzda is very poor. Deprecation if the car is a real worry. Fun to drive and looks really good but very very thirsty of petrol and oil. Dont buy this car if you dont have the budget to run it!!!!

    Pros: looks great is comfortable on short trips around twisties

    Cons: dont expect ANY service from MAZDA

    My Rx8 — How many cylinders does it have? That's probably the most favorite question of all time asked to RX8 owners. The answer is none. It is using rotary engine with two rotors, each holding displacement of 654cc, totalling to around 1300cc and produces 238HP (claimed). It has no cylinder nor piston. This is the 2nd car I've owned. That explains the naming of car plate number. The only problem with this car is that there is no rotary engine technician where I live. Any problem with the car's engine would be complete disaster. As for performance, build quality and look, there is nothing to complain about.

    Pros: great performance, smooth engine even at 9000 rpm, unique design, suicide doors, comfortable

    Cons: bad mileage, hard to find technician

    It's Blue — This car is art in form and function. I forgive it for for its really horrible mileage. My girlfriend has the 350Z, and here's the deal: Sure, the Z has a couple more horses, and is slightly faster for it... but I have back seats... and a better looking car. It's true.

    Pros: It's fast and pretty

    Cons: It has an addiction to oil.

    Cool Looking Car. — It was okay. The engine in mine went on recall because it kept stalling, no it wasn't a manual transmission car, but the end would just quit when it was hot outside and I came to a stop in residential areas. The car, when it worked well, was very fun to drive. It could take corners very well. The car always looked fast though. Very sporty and cool.

    Pros: Looks

    Cons: the engine was bad

    Rotary Engine — It is called Sue Helen! Great vavavoum acceleration and easy to handle. Do not need to be expert driver although it likes sliding on wet and oily roundabouts. A coupé with four confortable seats. Great engine noise and fun to drive when it is pushed. Although :( a very VERY poor second hand value.

    Pros: I want more!

    Cons: I want more!
