Overall:

An Engineering Masterpiece! — I adore the styling of the car first off, from the sleek exterior, to the beautiful and comfortable interior. The handling is tight and smooth, and the power is breath-taking. The whir of the engine makes your heart race, and how easily it flies down the road leaves you stunned. All around an amazing car.

Pros: Everything. I love the rotary engine... It is a true marvel

Cons: Gas mileage. So far I'm only getting... about 19 miles to the gallon.

Rotary Baby — Performance - Not the fastest car in the world but shouldn't be underestimated Build Quality - no repairs except for the usual maintenance (It literally eats oil) Appearance - Love the body style. Sometimes I just stare at it for hours. Cost of Ownership - premium only no mid-grade or unleaded gas. Need to have a bottle of oil stashed in your trunk always. Fun Factor - For me, 10/10

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Very fun to drive.

Cons: 14mpg

Rx-8 — Theres not really much to say about it. Its a 2004 Mazda RX-8.I absolutely love the car all over. I use it just for work and casual driving. The only downfall to it is gas millage which isnt too horrible all the time but it does guzzle gas if you drive it like i do. It also wont move and inch in the snow for me.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Pretty much everything

Cons: Gas millage

I Absolutely Love This Car. The Rotary Engine Is An Amazing Piece Of Machinery If Treated Right. — PROS: This is a fast and extremely well handling car, it grips the road almost like a 240sx. 250 BHP and Revs to 9k RPM!!!Sexy and sporty at the same time. All the power of a coupe sports car but has the luxury of a sedan. 4 doors make it easy to fit more than 2 people in the car without having to move the seat. Heated seats are definitely a plus. Bose sound system has just enough bass not to blow your ear drums and the stereo goes to 34 (pretty damn loud) without sacrificing music quality. CONS: If you don't know anything about the rotary engine I'd suggest learning. you have to add non-synthetic oil every once and a while because oil is injected into the engine along with fuel to keep the apex seals lubricated. Gas mileage is not what you would expect it to be for such a small car with a 1.3L engine. Rotary's run rich and you have to use 91+ octane or your Check Engine Light will come up with multiple codes.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: fast and fun to drive. amazing handling. great overall feel.

Cons: gas mileage. if you don't know anything about the rotary engine I'd suggest learning. you have to add non-synthetic oil every once and a while because oil is injected into the engine along with fuel to keep the apex seals lubricated.

This Really Is A Niche Car, Either You Love It Or Hate It. High-performance Luxury Car. — I think Car And Driver described it best in their latest article on the Rx-8. They describe it as "The Affordable Exotic." Featuring tight handling, a luxury interior and an exotic motor, the car definitely lives up to that title. This is the most fun car I've ever driven, period. I would suggest it to anybody who cares a great deal about their vehicle and wants a unique car that really stands out.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Nimble, fun to drive, rotary engine, four door, luxury car, incredibly easy to work on.

Cons: Exotic car means expensive parts and repairs, poor gas mileage.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: grip

Cons: mpg

Mazda Rx8 The Ultimate Drive Machine. — I love this car, it performs great, is very stylish, and I haven't had any mechanical issue's with it. The only negative thing I can think of is that it burns gas... Fast, but nonetheless I still love this car. The best car purchase I've ever made.

Pros: It's fun, responsive, stylish, and have four seat just incase you need them.

Cons: If you're looking to save gas, don't get this car.

Great Car, But In The Wrong Price Range. Other Cars At The Same Price Have Better Performance... — First car. It is now sold. Was a GREAT handling car with the right tires and tire pressures, but def lacked in the power department. Powerband was weak until 7300+ RPM which was only good for track days. Car was extremely expensive to modify and without special tools, do not attempt internal work...

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Great B-Stock Car. Handles well. Chicks dig it.

Cons: Power.
