The Mazda RX-8 is weird, cool, and special -- and you probably shouldn't buy one. Today I'm reviewing the Mazda RX-8, and I'm showing you all the quirks and features of the unusual RX-8. I'm also driving the RX-8, and I'm going to show you why you shouldn't consider one, even though it's cool.

the reason why it says at 13:27 special or unique it’s because some country like i do have super or special for example UAE they only have special or super and also some others country’s have unique fuel so they have to put it their to remind them

A 6 second 0-60 should be surely at least an 8/10!... Particularly when most normal cars (outside the overside engines ye get in the U.S.) are a lot slower! For example i drive an 08 Mazda 6, with a 118hp 1.8l, which had around a 10.5 second 0-60 ( and even though the third gen 6's have 145-165hp in petrol models, they're a bit heavier, getting about 9.5 and 8.5 0-60s. However even such cars are a lot quicker than many people's 1.0 ~60hp hatchbacks with 12+ second 0-60! I wish i lived in a world were the RX-8 is slow! 😮😃 Indeed sure i know, some Porsches etc have around 3 second 0-60s, but they're just nuts 😃 .

Cupholders: The 94 to 96 Thunderbird/Cougar has them in the armrest too, but it's worse than the RX8's design. The lid(which is the armrest) flips up sideways to the passenger side, and the cupholder flops down from the bottom side of that lid, so your cups are floating above the storage bin under there. The passenger has to reach over the open armrest lid which is essentially a wall, to get his drink. For the driver, it stops you from being able to rest your arm. You would have some difficulty shifting were it a manual, which it isn't.

Former Mazda salesperson here. I can confirm the service department absolutely HATED seeing this car lol, especially because they were frequently brought in due to owner negligence--you need to burn off the excess fuel in the rotary chamber or it can become flooded, meaning you have to stab the gas pedal and then turn the engine off. It has to warm up ideally for a good 10 minutes before you start driving it. Well, a lot of folks did not do either of those, and so seeing an RX-8 being brought in on a flatbed was fairly common lol. One guy had his brought in multiple times because his wife didn't understand she couldn't just turn it on, move it, and then turn it off so it flooded haha. Still though, i absolutely adore this car and had quite a great time driving it. The R3 was especially amazing!

I had a used RX8 and never had any engine issues. You have to be religious about doing oil changes. I had one that did not have the extra oil dispenser so I would premix with Idemistu oil at fill up. Fun to drive and it was great revving up to 9k. Took corners well too

5:40 Sun visors holes are for viewing traffic lights. you can turn off the beeping of the buttons too. Absolutely everything in this car was carefully planned. btw, those cup holders aren't for cups lol. No real rx8 enthusiast would want to put drinks in the cup holders and risk spilling while pulling 1.3 G's in the corners. If you really need cup holders, there's two behind you in the center. Main reason rx8's get hate is because normal people would buy them and treat them like a piston engine car. This isn't a normal car.

5:40 The holes are to allow you to see traffic lights without being blinded. Also the buttons beeping can be easily turned off. An incredible amount of thought and planning went into this car. There's a reason rx8 owners love it.

I'm gonna start by saying the fuel economy is worse than the Chevy 5.7, I had a Ls1 Chevy Camaro before I got my 06' rx8 but so far this car is worth it it only has 1.3 liter displacement and it puts out massive amounts of power from the little engine stock. Now to understand the doors and the trunk you'll have to see things from a engineers view, Mazda sports cars are known for their low weight and great weight distribution due to the rotary engine and they had to compete with their flagship rx7 in handling as well as the changing world wanting more seats. If you've ever owned a trans am or Camaro then you know how ridiculously large and heavy those doors are, Mazda made the doors like that so that it can seat 4 people without dinging someones car up in a parking lot. The half- doors are also because of weight and weight distribution they weight less than a whole door and with a half-door they can keep the wheel base shorter and keeping the nimble feel in corners. I do agree on the cup holder situation but that's the only thing I agree on. People say these cars use oil well I think the only people who say that drive it like they stole it or have loads of miles on it at which any car will use alot. My rx8 hasn't used any and it's over 100k, I change the oil regularly and check it once a week. As far as the looks go, I get unprovoked compliments from nearly everyone. So far I'm impressed with this car, I've owned many sports cars and this one definitely is one of my most favorite

Terrible review buddy, these cars are amazing. If you give it the love and care it needs it will last you and will be very reliable. Too many racer boys who drive the car hard 24/7 and provide no proper maintenance are the reason for the negativity. Ensuring the car is heated up correctly and cooled correctly, Constant oil changes every 2km, 2 stroke oil in every tank and a red line a day are all needed constantly plus more smaller things. If you want to have a sports car, drive the shit out of it, and never maintain it. THIS IS NOT THE CAR FOR YOU.

I have an 2005 Infinti G35 coupe with over 300hp (standard) + 30HP+ in mods. I drove the Mazda - gutless, slow and only started to pull in very high revs. I also found it ugly, gas and oil hungry - I passed. The G35 sold very well. The RX-8 didn't and thus died as the G35 became the G37 before becoming the ugly non selling Q50 coupe now - ugh! If you want to drive mine sometime. I live right next to LAX.

Had a 2005 - I loved it to the moon and back. The handling was telepathic, absolutely unreal, precise physical feedback--you had to get into Lotus, Porsche Cayman/911s etc to get better handling. The sound from the screaming rotary powerplant was addictive, and the interior was pretty practical for a small coupe and surprisingly premium for the price point. Mine had the banging Bose audio system too. The chassis could have handled 300 bhp, but given the low weight plus how fast the rotary revs the hp didn't seem that lacking. These don't get enough respect for how much they actually fit the textbook definition of 'sports car.' Real review begins at 20:30.
