    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.

    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...
