The good, the kinda bad, and no ugly.
I've put about 300 miles on the car this last weekend. If could highlight only one thing about the car it would be its awesome handling capabilities. The car drives like no other I have owned. Of course there is more to it than that so here are my comments regarding the RX-8:
Excellent/Good - Handling, performance, curb side appeal, responsiveness, comfort and style.
Not that Good - Gas mileage, failure to start quickly, gear shift **** vibration, cabin noise, factory radio sound quality, and black residue on exhaust pipes.
The good far outweigh the bad by a long shot and I'm very pleased with the car. Extremely fun to drive!
