    The 2004 Rx-8 — Performance- accelerates fast, brakes are amazing, and with the front and rear strut bars/ sway bars the handling is amazing. The exterior is friggin sexy, as is the interior. I bought the car for $20,000. it gets like 15 city, 19 highway. This car is the most fun car ive ever driven, besides my dads lexus.

    Pros: Fun car, fast, sexy

    Cons: Small cabin for rear seat leg room

    Going To Miss My Rx-8 When My Lease Is Up. — My lease is expiring in 3 days, and I know I'm going to miss it. The drive feels like and extension of my body.... the low-end torque leaves something to be desired, but once you get moving, this thing is a rocket and carves thru traffic. Nice sound system and my wife likes the plethora of airbags when I'm driving the kids around in the backseat.

    Pros: Blast to drive, turns heads, makes you feel like a superstar.

    Cons: Horrible gas mileage (premium!), winter driving is scary.

    Spandy (sporty And Handy!) — I actually love the styling although many people do say it is ugly because of its short nose. The handling speaks for itself, car handles like it's on rails. Acceleration isn't the best but not bad, just have to get your launch right. Overall it's the best car for me because I was looking for the performance of a two-seater but got that and four seats. Very handy, not to mention the build quality is impeccable, mazdas are great.

    Pros: great performance with 4 seats

    Cons: won't out-drag a 350z (minor negative)

    Rx8 — Awsome car, the performance is great, handling smooth and responsive, breaking is excellent. Not so good in the rain, but still easy to drive. The engine's redline of 8500 RPM is wonderful, the sound of the engine is great. Overall I love it except the gas mileage could use help.

    Pros: Sporty

    Cons: Gas

    Hot Hot Hot! — I loved how sexy this car was and all the attention i got from driving it (I'm not going to lie). The fact that it is kind of a rare car made me want it more! It was fast as well! It was not so good on gas or in any kind of rainy or Winter weather. The interior was nicely engineered.

    Pros: Beautiful, sexy, fast & sleek!

    Cons: Bumpy ride, bad in wet/snowy conditions, not good gas mileage

    Mazda Rx-8 — After a year I still love to drive it! If it were any faster I'd have lost my license by now, and the handling is great. A sports car with a true back seat is a bonus too, works great for kids. I'm very happy with my purchase, and I can't wait to see the RX-9.

    Pros: Great Handling

    Cons: none

    My Maz — the rotary engine seems thirsty (only getting about 18mpg, maybe the way i drive it!!!) does not have alot of engine torque but goes well when you get her round to 9000rpm, another 100bhp would be nice though!!! but overall its a nice car to drive and puts a smile on my face round the twisty bits

    Pros: ride, handling, looks, whole driving experience

    Cons: engine torque, mpg

    My Mazda Rx8 — Good fun car, but not the best for everyday. It eats fuel and engine oil like no other car i've ever had. Amazing performance without looking like a boy racer car. Buy the higher BHP version, its a far better car and much easier to sell when you opt for somthing more sensible.

    Pros: Very Very Fast!

    Cons: Difficult to drive sensibly, don't offer your nan a lift to the shops!

    My 2004 20b Rx8 Gt — The thing I love the most about my car is the 700 HP it has......It has a 3 rotor swap with a GT42 dual ballbearing turbo. When I bought it a couple of years ago the only thing I had a little complaint was the lack of low end torque, but now I'm more than happy with my car.

    Pros: Power and handling

    Cons: Not very fuel eficient, but its worth every bit

    Great Car — The only 2 things I do not like very much are MPG and the low torque it has. Other than that it is a perfect car. The cost of ownership so far has been decent, considering that I bought the car with pretty old tires and I have to change them some time soon. (price per tire is about $225)

    Pros: Performance in any aspect.

    Cons: MPG and low torque
