4.1

A true sports car for under 10,000

The Mazda RX8 is an amazing car it sounds great and looks good too. It's comfortable for a sports car and it is so much fun to drive. The reliability is below average but not terrible. It isn't very expensive to fix the car either. Best value sports car. Could use a little more power but for under 10,000 it's still a bang for your buck. Solid car. I currently have 87,000 miles.

5.0

I own 5 RX8s

I bought all of them used and abused. First thing to do when you buy one of these cars is to do a Tune up and oil change. 20 50 oil and oem filter. Than change all the coils and plugs and wires ngk. Than check suspension rear coils usually are broken. Stock coils with bilsteins or kybs. Too many bumps in these roads. This car handles like an expensive Porsche at a much cheaper price. Its not fast in a straight line but the handling is amazing. I love all 5 of my RX8s. I would not recommend this car to my friends because they don't like to fix anything and xxxxx too much. So I enjoy my rx8s and they just keep xxxxxxxx!!!!
