It is the best car I have in my collection and I use mine nearly every day. It is so practical, so comfortable, so easy to drive even the wife takes it to go shopping because she loves it too. Just a fantastic car.
A bit temperamental in cold weather with starting problems but nothing serious or majorly wrong. Also, does not like to be started and stopped until the engine has warmed up otherwise you may need to call out the tech guys to sort it. Cannot be push started either. However, very rare to get a problem with these ever.
Where to begin folks...
I have several cars and bikes in my collection and i'll list them all for you here as it is all relevant. I currently own a mark 1 Golf GTi, a BMW E30 320i, Mazda RX8 (of course), Ferrari 355 Spider, Maserati 4200 which I keep in Spain, Honda CBR 600 Fi, Honda Goldwing and I've just purchased a Rolls Royce Drophead Coupe. Which one do I use on a daily basis because of its practicallity and excellent build quality, fantastic stereo system from BOSE, satnav, climate control, electric this that and the other...THE MAZDA RX8 of course. It goes like stink and it is very comfy and everything else too. What else can I say about it? The fuel consumption is not great if you are comparing it with a family hatch but it isn't a family hatch rival is it? If you compare it to other SIMILAR types of vehicle with similar performance then you will realise what a worthwhile vehicle it is to own and how cheap it is by comparison. My 355 does about 12 mpg around town and it is no faster or quicker than the Mazda; not by much anyway. The RX8 seats 4 adults in comfort too. Can you say the same about the Audi TT, Nissan 300, etc? Of course you can't. It is a very well engineered car. I've said enough. If you don't have one and are thinking about buying one then what are you waiting for and what is stopping you?
