It's a great vehicle
I like its low fuel consumption. The hydraulic system allows a great compensation in relation torque and time between changes. Its engine has a full injection system, which allows it to accelerate from 0 to 100km/h in 6.9 seconds. Its ergonomic seats agree and enhance in an unbeatable way with the body of the same, which has quite pronounced curves in the front and very subtle in the rear. The suspension system of this car allows maneuvering at high speeds on any road or street. Its engine is easy to repair without being a skilled mechanic.
A great car if you understand the quirks
Fun to drive doesn't even begin to cover it. The car handles like a dream. It lives for corners and hates going under 50mph. The interior is comfortable but the back seat is only for two, because there is a center console. It is, however, not the best on gas. It gets around 20 mpg, and it only takes premium.
Sporty and Different
I purchased a 2004 Mazda RX-8 from my mom after she moved onto a hybrid (Honda CR-Z). I always liked the car because it was so differently styled than nearly every other car on the road. The sound the engine made was so much different too because of it's rotary engine. The only problem with the rotary engine is that it is so inefficient with fuel I would go through a full tank (over 10 gallons) in about 2 weeks. That amounted to over $40 a fill up. It was a great and sport car other than the mileage. The car was very fun in the twisties but as I got older I stopped going up to the mountains for a quick jaunt.
