2010 Mazda RX-8 What's new for 2010? 
2010 Mazda RX-8

The 2010 RX-8 receives a revised front and rear fascia as well as a simplification of the model lineup. The Touring trim has been dropped, as have the Premium Package options. A sunroof is now standard on the Grand Touring trim and Mazda has made significant improvements to the rotary engine aimed at minimizing oil consumption.

About Mazda RX-8

Many car companies assign the word "unique" to their cars, but in the case of the 2011 Mazda RX-8, the term truly applies. What makes the RX-8 unique? The answer is a combination of attributes beginning with Mazda's RENESIS rotary engine, the only such engine offered in a production car. Then there are the RX-8's small reverse-facing rear doors, another feature you won't find on any other sports car in its class. Of course, the RX-8's lightweight and impressive handling have earned it praise from owners and enthusiasts alike, but there is a dark side to being unique. Despite improvements made last year, the rotary engine still consumes oil at a greater rate than a traditional piston engine, and the RX-8's fuel economy can be downright abysmal. Still, if you can live with these eccentricities, the RX-8's cool look, roomy rear seat and good size trunk make it a very easy sports car to live with.

Pros: "Fun, Fun, Fun to drive!"

Cons: "low torque!"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"If you like to have fun driving the RX-8 is for you... maybe not the most powerful and fast on a straight line... but boy... does it drive good... it is like driving a go-kart! My only complaint is that it lacks torque, so of the start is slow... once you build up RPMs it goes... If you have a heavy foot... like most RX-8 drivers do! it does have an appetite! it will do 19-20MPH Highway, if you slow down and watch your acceleration (no fun!) it will do 23... so is up to you..."

Pros: "amazing handling"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I've owned this car for about a year now, and after reading some of the other reviews, I can answer some of the complaint problems. This car runs absolutely amazing and has amazing top end speed! Yeah, it may be a little slower off the go than a v8, but what can you expect from such a little engine. Now i see a couple of complaints about having a problem starting it when its hot. there's a pretty cheap fix to that problem, you need to buy an after market ignition which is not that hard of a replacement at all. After snubbing or just turning off the car for a min or so, the car will fire instantly right off the go. Another cheap after market piece i highly recommend people to buy is the nrg grounding kit. I also have bought the aem cold air intake if your looking for that extra power and added gas mileage this 300 dollar investment is a great one. Other than that this car has perfect handling, take sharp curves at high speeds without a problem, an extremely smooth ride. Comes with a great speaker system, overall a great car that you can find for a decent price. Just pay attention to your fluids and the rotary should stay in top notch condition."

Pros: "Great Value for a 4 seat sports car."

Cons: "The gas mileage."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"The mazda has been very reliable. People constantly comment on the styling. The car is very quick and handles like your riding on rails. The interior is very quiet and the rear seats come in handy for small children. The one draw back is the gas mileage. It performs like a v8, but uses fuel like a v6. Some people may or may not like the feel of the road."
