Would Avoid.

Great interior and exterior styling. My very first call i ever owned. 7 months in, i was already changing my spark plugs because of the rotary engine frying them. Would Avoid unless you plan on doing a engine swap.

My RX8 has been my daily driver for 9 years!

Still loving this car after 9 years! Handles like a damn Porsche, and sounds like nothing else on the road. A consistent head turner, the design of this car is amazing. This car gets a bad rap from people not taking care of it properly, but if you follow the guidelines, it can be a freaking incredible value, and the most fun you'll ever have for the money. I can't say enough good things, I wish this car would last forever!

Fun, fun, fun!

I bought this car new in 2007 and have been enjoying it ever since. I have the six speed manual and the whole setup is is mechanically tight and exhilarating. This is one of those cars that was built from the ground up and you feel it. The outside design still stands up, even though it’s been 15 years since its original release. The handling on dry roads is outstanding with its near perfect 50/50 weight distribution. On wet or slippery roads it does not inspire nearly the same confidence. The rotary has been extremely reliable, though I have had to educate myself on de-flooding techniques to spare the tow truck once or twice a year. My son is anxiously waiting for me to hand over the keys, but right now I’m still having too much fun.

Best good looking car i ever had

It’s a very sporty looking car using for work Very reliable and no issues at all . Overall I really like to buy one when first just came out in the market but couldn’t afford the price until someone put for sale and grab it right away wt a good price, have my mechanic checked and all is great,

Most fun and great running car

Have loved mine for years and has ran well. Nothing feels the same as the rx8 it hugs the roads and will do anything you want it to.

Regret selling it, tons of fun with proper care

It's a rwd sports car so you get what you would expect, terrible in the snow but a monster in the corners. Perfectly balanced, unique styling and the last production rotary ever. The most unique car I've ever owned and I'll definitely be looking for another one soon. Dont be scared by the reviews about engines blowing up, take care of it and PREMIX! Take car it it and it will take care of you.

Extremely fun to drive

This car is a lot of fun and can be a daily driver and still be a sports car. I actually own two of them.

Fun, Quirky Car For Enthusiasts

This is an enthusiasts car. The transmission is wonderful, the steering is heavy and direct, and the transmission is a dream. With the rear seats and doors, there's actually a decent amount of space. It's not the most powerful car. It's quick but not fast. It's just a blast to drive. Puts a smile on my face every time I bring it up to the 9000 RPM redline. There are some quirks to owning it, like having to check the oil very frequently, and not so ideal gas mileage, but the quirks are worth the experience you get from it. Fantastic vehicle.

A small beast

I love the way it looks, the way it drives, the way it feels, the way it sounds....The car starts and you are hooked on it. It makes you want to drive it. When you do drive it, it feels like a dream ride as far as handling and responsiveness. It lacks AC in extreme heat. The RX8 produces a lot of heat. The special engine needs to be cared for. Check the oil every couple of fill ups. Know the car and it will treat you well. It dislikes extreme heat and the engine needs to be warm in cold weather before you turn it off.
