    2004 Rx8 Type S 6 Speed — Excellent performance considering its Non turbo, would be faster if it was turbo!, have had a 14.9 second 1/4 mile on the g tech meter Build quality is pretty good no problems yet I like the appearance, a bit unique Costs a bit to run at the pumps, but apart from that just tyres and oil Fun Factor is up there!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Realy good handling and acceleration,

    Cons: gas consumption

    50 More Hp + Torque And It's Perfect — it's fun. the only downsides have to be the torque which isn't even that bad--but it's generally looked at as crap. the horsepower isn't too bad, but 50 more would be great. The torque and definitely the fuel economy...it sucks so badly. the car is extremely fun to drive though and the handling is amazing.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: FUN, love the looks, handling feels perfect, great brakes, rotary, not too slow

    Cons: Crap torque, pretty bad MPG

    A Lot Of Fun. — Drives well. Little slow of the line with only 228 hp but since its a light car it can really move. The suicide doors look sick. Gas mileage is rough but who cares cause its a lot of fun to drive.

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

    Pros: Suicide Doors

    Cons: MPG

    I Love This Car. — I just bought this car, so I can't really rate a lot of these categories in an unbiased way. I'm having a blast with it so far because it is a really fun car to drive. I just love it.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Renesis motor, 50/50 weight distribution, decent trunk/storage space for a subcompact, suicide doors

    Cons: Could use more power

    Our Rx8 Can Kick Your Cars Booty! — Performance: Stock performance is nice, acceleration is what the RX-8 is best at. (Specially after aftermarket exhaust and cold air was put into it), Tops out around 185mph Build Quality: Does not break easy, but parts are not cheap if you do need to fix something. Standard dealership tires range are about $180 per tire. The perferred tires around about $250 per tire. Can't take it to a regular oil change place. Takes a rare oil for the engine. Appearance: Exterior is very nice the paint is very durable/ yet expensive. There is no need to use your brights if you have the helium lights. Body kit makes it look a little meaner. The spoiler fits the cars look nicey. The Interior is very durable aswell. Seat warmers are the best! Doesn't have much space inside the car. Tunk is okay but with a system in the back nothing will fit. Cost: $25 to fill up. Takes only high test. Doesn'y get good gas milage, but a stock would get better then ours with all the after market we have on it. Expensive and technical to upgrade stuff. The car is very fun we take it when we go out. Turn the neons on and cruise down the strip. Acceleration is very good and tops out at 185mph. Wanna Race?

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

    Pros: Acceleration, Top Speed, Interior, Engine

    Cons: Cost per Part

    No Torque — Good handling, styling, no torque. cheap used. terrible fuel efficiency. I bought this car for 12700 used. There is an 8 year warranty which solves reliability issues but not the fuel efficiency and lack of power. Get a mustang if u want to drag race off lights.

    Pros: True sports car

    Cons: Engine

    It Is So Me! — My favourite car of allllllll time. zoom zoom Long live Bebecar! Low to the ground, 4 doors, paddle shifting, awesome stereo. Not too many problems, save for the gas cap, but that solved all my ills. Great car to drive cross country. 2x and counting.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: it go fast.......zooooooooooooooom

    Cons: Premium gas

    80,000 Mile Review — The car handles like nothing I've ever driven. Braking and throttle response are impressive. Still waiting for the torque though. Hopefully won't have to wait much longer once I get the supercharger fitted and tuned. Overall the car is a blast to own and drive.

    Pros: Performance, Fun to drive factor, appearance, exclusivity

    Cons: gas mileage, lack of torque, consumes oil
