first car purchase.. not happy
Pros: interior and great pickup
Cons: power steering noise and the dealership service.this is my first car purchase with my hard earn money. three months of owning this car, i had to take it to the shop three times. my power steering light came on and lost my steering while i was driving. the dealership could not find anything wrong and now i hear very loud hissing/humming noise. they said its a normal sound but i hear it inside the car and outside. it is so loud and annoying. i am planning to sale this car in several months. only had the car for five months now. not happy
I love this car
Pros: the look and feel of the car
Cons: nothingno major problems at all.
Cons: tires, not good in snowgood looking and good gas mil. overall a good means of transportation
Pros: handling, 33-35 mpg, and excellent looks
Cons: carpet, seats need updated to better qualityGreat looks. Paint is excellent quality/ Holds up great in Arizona sun where most paints fade quickly. Excellent gas mileage. Consistently 33 - 35 mpg on freeway. Handling is surprisingly precise with little to no body roll. No mechanical issues at all with 61,000 on odometer. Interior carpet and seats are of fair quality but for price of vehicle I thought they seem a little 'cheap'. Overall I would buy another.
Looks over comfort anyday!!!
Pros: Second set of doors
Cons: Console with stickshift to compacted.Mazda RX-8 is a beautiful automobile with its streamline body, from the outside the car looks very spacious with its 4-doors. Open the doors and to enter the vehicle you will see that the interior is very compact. With wonderful heated wraped around body seats, a console that trying to furnish to much convenience for such a tight space, makes the vehicle very confining. From all my friends the back seats are very spacious with elbow and head room. This Mazda RX-8 is just what a HOT spots car is suppost to be... Looks all the way!! Comfort, not so much.. Thanks
Pros: The styling and the stereo
Cons: NONEOur Mazda in 5 years has still not been in the shop! We have the 4 cyl and it has plenty of power and gets great mileage. Also, the fit and finish is perfect.
