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

Generally Impressive Vehicle — The only thing most RX-8 owners complain about is the relatively low power/weight ratio. Other than that, the car excels in all other areas. I like this car so much, I quit my job and started a new company which builds performance parts for it.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Four full-size seats and handles like a two-seater.

Cons: Engine reliability in the '04-'05 models.

Mazda Rx-8 — This car is by far the most fun car I have ever driven. The handling is simply outrageous and it gets up quickly as well. It was an excellent deal. Interior is wonderful. And the Bose system in it is decent.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: all of it

Cons: none of it

The Hotness — its my favorite car to date that i can afford. i love everything about it except the repair costs. the car has alot of potential to make it really fast turbo ready i hope to have it done by next summer. if you dont have the money for it i suggest a rx7 they are very cheap and quick, and already come with a twin turbo

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

Pros: i love the handleing

Cons: it weighs in at 3900lbs

Awesome Car Overall — This car is certainly one that will turn heads everywhere you go. It definitely has some get up and go to it although it takes high rpms to get there. This is not a car to save for the winter months however since it is RWD.

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

Pros: Head turner, quick at high revs, outstanding handling

Cons: Sucks in the winter, acceleration

Anyone Want To Buy It Off Me? — Accelleration could be better, braking is ok, Handling is great, has lots of issues, burns more fuel than a hummer... also depending on the way you drive it ;P, nice looking, pretty fun, convenient suicide doors, you can fit a 60" grill in the thing!

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

Pros: Handling

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
