    2005 Mazda RX-8 6-Speed ShinkaReview

    Roxanne Rules — 9000 rpm redline and a 6 speed manual transmission; handles like it is on rails; very unique shape and body design (when was the last time you saw suicide doors?). Terrrible gas mileage but well worth the price of admission.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Handles like a dream and stops on a dime

    Cons: Poor low-end torque and hard on gas
