    Beautiful — The car has some sweet curves, and a nice leather interior. Gauges are setup in a way you can see everything nicely. Steering is very responsive and braking is strong. love the engine @ 9000+ RPM.

    Pros: Looks, sound, comfort, responsiveness.

    Cons: Acceleration, lack of power

    Good Sporty Fun. — think this car is not a very good looking car but it is a lot of fun. It really doesn't feel all that sporty around town but let that engine wind up and you'll have a ball. It was great fun without being uncomfortable, or even all that expensive. I'm not a fan of rotary engines normally, but this was a pleasure.

    Pros: nible, quick, fun, and practical.

    Cons: rotary engine takes some getting used to.

    Best Car You May Ever Own! — I have had my RX-8 for over a year and I could not ask for anything more. The car handles like few out there. The performance of the car only adds to the experience and is great to drive around the city.

    Pros: Great handling, Stands out from other cars

    Cons: Fuel Mileage, Exhaust Note Not Very Loud

    Se3p — Not a straight line performer, but who cares? Great on corners, RWD, hi-revving, and driveable in the winter. Awesome interior, although Bose is a bit lacking. Relatively cheap in price compared to other cars in the segment. Built in Japan.

    Pros: -9Krpm
    -RWD, corner carver
    -Cozy interior, decent feature set
    -BUILT in Japan

    Cons: -Gas mileage, it's not great, but not horrible
    -People asking me what car is it...

    Pretty Fast Car On Highway, Track And Lots Of Fun To Drive — if you own this car, civics, integras, eclipses WILL try to race you. and you'll have quite a bit of fun smoking them. it comes with stiff clutch, fabulous interior, high revving/durable engine.

    Pros: appearance, handling, 2-way differential, light weight advantages

    Cons: gas mileage, vibration due to characteristic rotary engine, lack of torque

    Great Car But Still Not An Rx7 — Seats for comfortably and can still handle exceptionally well. Original looks.

    Pros: Hey its a rotary!

    Cons: Needs more power! 235bhp? Needs 275!
