    The Bandits Kryptonite — tempermentale these mazdas rx8 are you have to respect her the same way and at the same time she is awesome meaning start up and shut down yu have to give time for the car to warm up once its warm she will give tons of pleasure she sounds good and ready to take on any road and when shuttting her dwn give her time to decompress at least 10 to 15 seconds before shutting her dwn completly and yu will never have any problems in staring her up again you have to feel and be part of the car. i have left my rx8 stock she is great just the way she came out of the japanese plant

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

    Pros: everything

    Cons: automatic but trip tronic is great

    Awesome. :p — Pretty nice build quality, really good performence (0-60mph in 6.4 sec) with top speed round about 140mph. It does drink lots of gas but it's worth it, great car to drive. I would strongly recomend that car to anybody who can afford it's costs of ownership.

    Pros: Engine

    Cons: MPG

    Functional And Expensive To Operate And Maintain — acceleration 0-30 sucks, after 30 does great, solid car, quiet inside, great styling inside and out, crappy gas mileage 15 in town, 22 out of town, extremely comfortable seats, really cool night time dash lights, 3rd doors is a bonus if you have children, center console also in the rear, corners nice, pulls to the right or left if there is a pot hole or dip in the rode. engine is quite. radio lacks a little base. maintenance heavy with spark plugs costing 20-40 dollars a piece.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: comfort, originality, functionality

    Cons: maintenance

    Mazda Rx-8 — If Mazda could have left the turbo in for the RX-8 this thing would be amazing. Gas mileage is horrible but thats the cost of owning a sports car right? Accel isn't great but the handling, feel of power, two tone seats are amazing. Slap in a turbo and I'd be more than happy to boast Mazda all day. Body kit in storage waiting to be put on!

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

    Pros: Handling, Styling, Much Much More

    Cons: Gas Mileage, Acceleration

    If I Could Have This Car With A V8 Engin In It It Would Be The Best Car Ever — Floods all the time and Mazda has no clue how to fix is.... Doesnt go in the snow at all... Minor repairs cost big bucks... Expensive to keep the body up id someone hits you and leaves... small dent = 800 dollar repair...

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: looks amazing, turns heads

    Cons: engine and snow driving

    Chris Thomas — Great looks and amazing handling but low torque makes the car unreasonably slow off the line. It has a good quality fit and finish but still no german car I gotta love the passat for that aspect. It has a lot of amenities that make it a very comfortable ride when you need it to be. overall a great car

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

    Pros: Looks Handling reliable comfortable

    Cons: Engine needs to be babied premium gas

    Love It. — This car is all I could ask for at my age. Its so much fun to drive and the exact layout that I wanted. Front engine rear wheel drive, that goes like stink and makes an awesome sound. And in my opinion is absolutely beautiful.

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

    Pros: TWISTIES. Can seat 4!!! So much fun to drive.

    Cons: No torque...

    Great Car! — Love everything about this car. Great cornering, redlines at 9000 RPM, sporty and it fits two carseats in the backseat and is the only sports car on the market with 4 doors. Love it! I just wish I could fit my 3rd kid in there whenever we have one. :)

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Corners

    Cons: Warming it up before shutting it off or it floods and bad gas mileage

    The Best Car A Normal Person Like You And I Could Afford — this car is amazing! cheap to buy reasonably cheap to insure but is a little thirsty i get 21 MPG maximum lol. the only problem i've had with it was the catalytic converter(£1200 done under warranty) the way it looks, drives and sounds is AWESOME. it has DSC(dynamic stability control) which stops (well tries as hard as it can) you spinning out it's saved my life a few times, but it still lets you have fun turn it off and you have a full on drift car. ps i have the 231bhp model. so is it fun YESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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

    Pros: it is Jeremy Clarksons 3rd favourite coupe out of every coupe there is 2nd is the bmw M6 and 1st is the Aston Martin DB9

    Cons: if you like messing around on the roads it will kill you
