I bought a Mazda Rx-8 2006 candy apple read. I bought in 2007 as pre-owned vehicle and had only 12,000 miles on it and thats practically brand new. The feeling I get when I drive is indescribable I was on top of the world that is until I needed parts, or gas went up, or I decided to use as a commuter car (comfort), and slowly but surely we got the big OH NO, the engine had locked up Kaput at 100,000. I had routine maintenance all the time and always checked oil. My mechanic who has worked onthese rotary engines for years said that Mazda states that the engines are only made to last 60,000 miles but no one bothers to tell you that of course at the dealer. The engine was a used one and once again since the car still had a loan on it that I could not pay off quickly I dropped another $6500 in an engine, then it was the tires and the brakes, and as you know nothing is cheap for parts for Mazda. People stop me on the street to tell me how much they love my car, and I nicely smile and say "here you take it," but make sure you have a fat wallet. On behalf of Mazda though I will say the thrill of driving it when it isnt broke down is phenomenal! ZOOOM ZOOOM ZOOOM
