The Mazda RX-8 is weird, cool, and special -- and you probably shouldn't buy one. Today I'm reviewing the Mazda RX-8, and I'm showing you all the quirks and features of the unusual RX-8. I'm also driving the RX-8, and I'm going to show you why you shouldn't consider one, even though it's cool.

  • I had three 2nd generation RX-7's, the rotary engine was superior to other engines through turns, drove them over 50k miles each (they started with over 70k when I bought them) and never lost one seal, no idea how the seal rumor got started but it is as false as can be. With street Toyo tires on stock rims it did one G in corners all day and I never once had brake fade. I graduated university, prepared to buy the RX-8...but as you can see from the numerous terrible design ideas, there was no way. I would buy the 2nd or 3rd Generation RX-7's right now if they sold it new with a larger rotary engine. I agree with Doug on the ugliness, absolutely ruined the style of the car so bad they had to call it a different number.

  • Those sun visors come in handy when the sun is directly behind the four-way stop sign in 5 o'clock traffic. The rotary engine normally produces 7500-9500 rpm before changing gears, whether you have an automatic or manual, respectively. Those engines run hot and you need premium fuel. You must also race the engine once a week, minimum, to keep carbon buildup at minimum levels. 2011 RX-8 owner PS - if possible, when purchasing from a dealer, get the premium extended warranty. At 84K miles, my transmission and engine had to be replaced. Cost more than the car's worth. In addition to that, everything's been replaced due to maintenance upkeep. On mile 3000. :-)

It's a very bad position for cupholders. But many cars have it that way, it's not only Mazda and Audi :D

  • Why all the hate against the rotary engine? How is a wearing rotary seal a reliability issue? That is the same as saying a piston car is unreliable because the timing belt wears out after a few years. Parts wear (on any car), that doesn't make a car unreliable, failing parts do... Yes, a rotary engine will need more rebuilds than a conventional engine, but they are easy enough engines to lift out of the car and work on. And the RX8's are cheap enough that you can factor in some engine overhaul costs. A problem finding someone to work on it? There are loads of specialist all over the world that can do a good overhaul with modifications to make them better. Once they have been rebuild you can do many years with pretty much normal maintenance. The rotary engine defines this car, it is what makes it possible to have a mid engined 4 seater car with a decent sized boot and a low center of gravity for great handling. Was it the best daily-driver back when it was new? No, most definitely not. But now that they have gotten as cheap as they are they have become great as a second (weekend) sports car.

  • A 6 second 0-60 should be surely at least an 8/10!... Particularly when most normal cars (outside the overside engines ye get in the U.S.) are a lot slower! For example i drive an 08 Mazda 6, with a 118hp 1.8l, which had around a 10.5 second 0-60 ( and even though the third gen 6's have 145-165hp in petrol models, they're a bit heavier, getting about 9.5 and 8.5 0-60s. However even such cars are a lot quicker than many people's 1.0 ~60hp hatchbacks with 12+ second 0-60! I wish i lived in a world were the RX-8 is slow! 😮😃 Indeed sure i know, some Porsches etc have around 3 second 0-60s, but they're just nuts 😃 .
