2004 Mazda RX8 rotary from North America
The RX8 offers real sports car performance, beautiful design inside and out, truly a great value
Check engine light came on the first week. Issue was promptly corrected by the dealer with "flash" firmware update.
Handles like a dream, stops on a dime, and begs to go faster!!
I usually give in…
This car turns heads everywhere I go. The oil consumption is by design and to be expected. The fuel consumption is higher than expected, but I don’t mind because I love the car so much. I would buy it over in a second, it handles better that anything I’ve ever driven.
When I go on vacation… I miss my car!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I purchased my 6-speed '05 '8 in March and absolutely love it. It's a blast to drive alone,...but I love the looks it gets when I pull up, let my wife out, and my two boys bounce out of the back - ha ha - priceless. Push the tach past 4500 and it has more than enough acceleration, superbly precise steering, and excellent road hugging performance thanks to the front & rear wish-bones. Had I wanted more power, but less performance I'd have purchased a Mustang or GTO. The mpg (19-23) and oil consumption are "acceptable" trade-offs given the expected longevity of the Renesis rotary engine. The RX8 is a wonderful vehicle for a person desiring sports performance with capacity to seat four.
