Mazda RX-8 (231ps) 4d (2006/55) - Owner Review

Rapid acceleration and superb road holding. Point it and go! The week before buying I test drove a 3.2 Boxter. The Mazda does not have the same badge but out performed the Porsche in every department.

Value

5 out of 5

As above, the Boxter would have cost 15k more with the same kit!

Engine still tight, open it up and the rev counter and fuel gauge go in opposite directions. But I was aware of that from research. Insurance under £400 which is good. £800 for Boxter.

Performance

Everything you want. Nice to know I'm driving a car that will chew up and spit out the majority of cars on the road.

Reliability

5 out of 5

It's a Mazda. Should it blow up has a comprehensive warranty so peace of mind.

Chose dark blue (Stratos) as it looks very understated. First car in ages that I have really walked towards and liked the look of. It is cool and funky at the same time. Much more presence than a boring Audi or BMW!

Comfort

3 out of 5

Having problems getting the adjustment of the seat right which is resulting in a bit of lower back ache. Hopefully will be sorted soon. But I do have a back problem.
