This Car Fit Me Like A Glove — My buddy bought this car new in '04. We replaced all the suspension componets and beefed them up. We raced it only a handfull of times during the '04 season; and while we were out classed by the STis we ran against, the driver still did very well... ;-)

Pros: Handled great, class winner for its time, clutch always felt perfect

Cons: Gas guzzler, burns oil, typical for rotary

A Car That Drives Like An Extension Of Your Body. — The best balance you can find in a car today. End of story. I can take this car to a track, on a long trip, or to an exclusive event, all while taking 3 friends with me in comfort. Driving this car, with its rotary screamer for an engine, never gets dull.

Pros: -Rotary engine! A 1.3 L N/A engine that gives cars with 3 times the displacement something to worry about.
-50/50 weight distribution. Perfect balancing and a superb suspension set up; driving it is a dream.
-Plenty room in that back accessed by excellent suicide doors. Coupe lines with sedan practicality.

Cons: -Transmission problems have arisen on separate occasions.
-Power modifications have little effect aside from F.I.

Fun, But Breaks All The Time. — It is a very impressive machine, but there are just too many problems with the rotary and transmission. I have owned the car for about 6 months and have had it in for two transmission problems, and it needs to go back again. Overall a fun car, just not reliable at all.

Pros: Handling, Style, Interior

Cons: Burns Oil, Transmission Problems, Not Very Fast

Take It In The Turns — It isn't a straight line car, the RX-8 won't run others in the same price range in a straight line. However put this prefectly balanced machine into the twists and turn and you will be hard pressed to find another that flows through the turns the way this car does.

Pros: Excellent craftsmanship, reliable, excellent interior, well designed cockpit, superb in the turns.

Cons: Lacks torque and lower rpms, upgrades and tuning is very pricey, turbo charging require engine rebuild.

A True Cross Over — smoothest engine ever, at 9000rpm is still smoother then any cylinder engine at idle.

Pros: The only Rotary production engine

Cons: the level of torque

Review By GuruY4521

The Mazda RX-8 was still going through some tweaking, and in time the RX-8 would become the car worthy of the RX name. The rotary engine, is the engine of the future. Read More
