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.

"With the right tires (goodyear eagle gt's are what I have), this car is amazing with handling, speed, and despite other reviews, good in the rain. It probably won't beat anything else in a straight line, but take it down a mountain, and you'll beat the likes of the 350z and S2000. It even has back seats! It drives like it is on rails, and its so much fun."

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..."
