    Goes To 9000 Rpm — . Top Gear and other car magazines had sung a few praises on this car for it fun driving and superb handling, plus, it's RWD coupe with four seats. The car has a manual transmission which provides 20 hp more than automatic.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: fun to drive, rotary engine, four seats, rwd, true sport car

    Cons: premium fuel

    My 2009 Rx-8 R3 Review — The cars terrible on gas... TERRIBLE! Its not very fast. It runs on a rotary motor which doesnt last nearly as long as standard motors. Its fun to drive but the fact the mileage sucks kind of takes away from the fun. Handles INSANE!

    Pros: Looks bad ass

    Cons: Gas mileage

    If You Want A Gas Sipper, Buy A Civic. Want A Road Machine That Handles Like It's On Rails? Rx-8! — This car handles like it's on rails. It's predictable and accurate. The rotary engine has a power band from 4000-9000 rpms and is geared really low, so it accelerates briskly. The torque is a little lacking, but it's not a drag car, so it doesn't bother me. I rarely have to brake into a turn and will beat anything in the twisties....Honda, eat your heart out!

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Handles like nothing else on the road. Up there with the Lotus Exige!

    Cons: Fuel mileage is a little lacking.

    It Has A Lot Of Whistles And Bells And It Feels Good But The Truth Is That It Is Beatable By A 92 Ec — We loved this cars looks from the time we saw it on the dealers lot. It was next to the commuter car we went to the dealership to look at (Mazda 3). It is NOT a fast, put you back in your seat car. The rotory engine is unique but it does not have the get up and go I was hoping for. Don't get me wrong----It is not a slow poke! The car is solid. Everything worksa as it should. We have leather interior and the seating will accomodate for regular adults. An improvemant over other four passenger sports cars. The mileage sucks but what do you expect when your foot is in it and the tank is small! The car is fun to drive and handles the corners great. Take off the traction control and the thing is very squirrelly!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It looks good!

    Cons: Gas mileage and performance lacxking

    Cool Car, More Fun To Drive Than My 2007 Yamaha R6 — The car feels like your part of a well made machine that is stuck to the road with glue . The rotory motor has a sound like no other, however my only complaint is it's lack of power . Overall this is one of the best cars I've driven, and being a mechanic I drive lots of different cars.

    Pros: Race car handling and 9000 rpm redline

    Cons: Bad gas milage
