    Shinka — Great driver, manual in Seattle traffic was a poor choice. Too many rattles but that's what the great sound system's for.

    Pros: 9,000 rpm red line, exhaust bark, cornering, braking.

    Cons: Rattles - made in Japan, who'd a thunk it?!

    Mazda Rx8 - Go Test Dtive One — One of the best drivers cars on the market. Very good performance and excellent handling. Always putting a smile on your face as you go past 5,000 revs all the way to 9,000! AWESOME

    Rx8 — Best darn handling sedan/coupe on the market. Room for the race tires in the back seat. Also easy to put the baby seat back there also. No torque, but it revs to 9K. Bad gas mileage.

    Nice Little Ride. — Sweet little car. No problems to report yet. Getting to point A to Point B quicker than most!!!

    Pros: Peppy car, could use a little more low end torque but screams at 9000 rpm!

    Cons: Not the most fuel efficient vehicle I have driven but the rotary engines are famous for that.

    Small And Kinda Cheap Feeling Inside But... — It was okay for the money, but felt cheap inside and took a lot of effort to drive. After getting out of the G35 Coupe into this car, I was dissapointed and wound up trading it in on the Durango.

    Pros: Looks

    Cons: Took a lot of effort and red lining at 9500 rpm is cool, but when it is a rotary engine anyways, that the same at 7500 in a regular car, no biggee.
