I just got a White GT RX-8 yesterday with around 12k miles on it. I just had a question about the slide over the cup holder. Is that supposed to slide freely? or is it supposed to lock in place when you slide it back? Cause every time i break it shoots the front. Thanks..

Thanks, appreciate it, it has a couple of quirks, but i was happy with the price. For instance the other driver took out the foot rest on the left side of the drivers seat and there is a small small bubble on the bottom of the back tinting which i don't think is factory.. (is factory tint even an option?).
Should i just take it in and have mazda give it a look over? Or for warranty do i have to have specific problems??
The cup holder clip is covered under warranty. Any dealership should replace / fix it free of charge. Why the heck did the previous owner take out the foot rest? That's weird...maybe ask him if he still has it?
I don't think 8s can come with factory tinting. I got tint included when I picked mine up new but they had it done at a tint shop.
I would take it in for an inspection if I was you...who knows what else is wrong.
Since you just bought it, I would think that whatever you find wrong with it in the next few days the dealer could reapir/replace in good faith, at least my dealer would. the center console is covered, no and if's or but about that one. Take it back and have them figure it out.
It's a GT, he lied on his finance and the dealer took back the car. So I win in the end. He didn't really trade it
I would get it checked out - by a different dealer than the one who sold it to you. If the guy had no intention of paying for the car, then "no telling" how he treated it until they caught up with him and got it back. Didn't check the oil, didn't change the oil, etc.
Still under warranty, but I would be concerned. It is like driving a rental car, we ALL abuse the heck out of those :-)
I'm still wondering how the first "owner" managed to put 12,000 miles on the car before the dealer figured out he'd been scammed... if that is, in fact, the true story on the car. What does Carfax say? I wouldn't believe anything that comes out of a used car salesman's mouth.
