            2008 Mazda RX-8 Review

            Note: This review was created when the 2008 Mazda RX-8 was new.

            The RX-8's ranking is based on its powerful and lightweight rotary engine, as well as its smooth handling, stylish cabin, and comfortable two-passenger rear seat. Despite its poor fuel economy and frequent maintenance requirements, the RX-8 remains a strong contender within the class of Affordable Sports Cars.

            Pros & Cons

            • Small engine produces competitive horsepower

            • Excellent handling

            • Four-door suicide-door design makes entering the rear seat an easy task

            2008 Mazda RX-8 Overview

            Most auto writers agree that the 2008 Mazda RX-8 is both sporty and practical. "Performance is often synonymous with a pricey and punishing ride. But the Mazda RX-8 defies convention," says Forbes. Still, the RX-8 ranks in the bottom half of its class because its combination of engine power, great handling, and a practical interior can't make up for its poor fuel economy, high-maintenance needs, and less-than-perfect interior construction. On the plus side, the RX-8 is the only affordable sports car with a truly comfortable backseat -- an advantage few shoppers are likely to brush aside.

            The 2008 Mazda RX-8 is offered in three trims: Sport, Touring and Grand Touring.

            No other sporting car on the planet sounds and feels anything like any Mazda Wankel-powered vehicle. Mazda's continuous and relentless development has kept the Wankel smog-legal and relevant for 40 years, and there's no foreseeable end in sight.

            Due to the nature of a rotary engine, it loses trace amounts of oil thanks to the need of lubricating the rotors. This can be a bit of an annoyance, as the oil should be checked after every second fill-up, and will need replacing more often than with piston engines.

            The RX-8 is a true sports car but its rotary engine makes it too inconvenient to appeal to most drivers.

            Minor grievances aside, the RX-8 is a wonderful automobile, more of a civilized sports coupe than a sports sedan. Prospective owners should be sensitive to the complexities of ownership, as this Mazda tries to be a different type of sports car.
