Mazda RX-8 (192ps) 4d (2004/04) - Owner Review

This is an exceptional drive for the money. It goes around corners like its on rails. At times there is an element of oversteer, but this is easily controlled.

Value

5 out of 5

I has everything you need. I guess they've kept costs down by steering clear of gimmicks and fads.

Costs

2 out of 5

Fuel consumption is poor for such a light car, and it does use oil if you drive it hard.

Performance

4 out of 5

The 190 draws more torque at lower revs than its high power brother, but it then hits the red line and the rev warning very quickly, but you learn to live with that. Nevertheless, it is a fast car yet it performs as a poser at high street speeds as well.

Reliability

5 out of 5

No problems so far.

This baby gives maximum feel good factor, a real head turner. They got the lines just right. Its classic looks won't date.

Comfort

4 out of 5

The driving possition is good, but it needs cruise control and pull out steering adjustment.
