2005 Mazda RX8 from North America
I am looking to buy a 2005 6 speed RX8. Found one for a real good price, but some of these reports make me wonder if this car is reliable or not. I test drove it today and fell in love with the car. I am commissioning in the Air Force soon and cannot afford to have an unreliable car. Is this a smart buy? Or should I just buy the RSX Type S that I originally wanted?
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I've owned 3 Acuras, and the ownership experience has been great. My RX8, however, has been very frustrating – poorly engineered, and bad factory support. I would not recommend the RX8.

My advice: know the previous owner; how they broke in the car and followed general guidelines for the rotary engine. It's not brain surgery, just different. This is a fabulous automobile.
