Mazda RX8 - The best impractical decision I ever made!

The Mazda RX8 is not a car for everyone. It is so close to the ground that I got stuck on a coconut once, it eats up coil packs and spark plugs like you wouldn't believe, and the rotary engine requires an extra trick or two every time you turn it on. That being said, it is an incredibly stylish, reactive, balanced and grounded ride. The inside feels like a little cocoon (ven though you'd be surprised how much crap you can fit in there!), and the outside wows people wherever you go. It is a shame that production ended years ago, and I am thrilled that I was able to find one in excellent condition to make mine.

Great vehicle but has a few weird kinks.

There is a buzzing sound from the radio when driving. Although it goes great around corners. The execration is explicable. Burns through gas real quick though. Very safe sports car with stylish and expensive interior. I have had the car for about 9 months and I have had to get the breaks fixed 2 times in that 9 months.
