Mazda RX-8 Owner Car Reviews

2006 Mazda Rx-8 Revelation Review

Have you ever woken up one morning and thought to yourself, Gee, I wish I had a wildly impractical, quirky, inefficient and polluting Mazda to do my daily commute in? Well I did. It was that morning I set my sights on owning a Wankel Rotary and it was that afternoon that my Mazda RX8 left the second hand dealer and began its unreliable adventure with me...

2006 Mazda Rx-8 Revelation Review

Spinning to over 9000rpm from its throaty Wankel engine this strange beast knows how to thrill its young owner. Brought just recently, I predicted days of low compression and large bills in my future but so far this little rotary has been nothing but a pleasure.

2006 Mazda RX-8 Review

The RX8 is almost the perfect car. It has immaculate handling, a great rev range, a beautiful sound, and lets not forget those suicidal doors! But everyone who knows a thing or two about rotaries will know the problems that come with them...

2007 Mazda RX-8 Review

Mazda are no strangers when it comes to the art of building sports cars, and fantastic sports cars at that. Their ethos is a simple, yet winning recipe for success; build cars that are small and lightweight with nimble chassis', then push them around with motors that rev to the moon. 

 The RX8 is a brilliant example of what Mazda has taken away from decades of R&D...
