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

Fantastic experience - 9K+ RPM with power coming in anywhere beyond 5K. Gearbox precise and fast. Handling Neutral, rear wheel drive with LSD. Driving position is superb.

Value

You will not buy a better car for £22K.

Costs

4 out of 5

Fuel for a performance car is 22 Mpg but you don't buy a car like this for economy. It is acceptable. A lot has been made of the oil consumption. This is my second RX8 and in its life with me (30 months & 20K Miles) it consumed less than 5 litres.

Simply Stunning for the price - you will have to get a TVR for more.

Reliability

Flooded my old one but Mazda mobile service (comes with warranty) got it going on the drive. New programming has reduced problem.

Cool.

Comfort

I'm overweight and 6` 2" and find it perfect. Check the headroom with a sunroof before ordering however as it knocks 60mm off.
