First off I hope it's not a 4 valve engine as listed? Secondly "driven like a kitten" is not a selling point with these cars, though with the mileage that low it's probably not too late to save the engine hopefully with a little bit of enthusiastic driving. Thirdly even though it's low mileage and good condition, for a 2004 first gen with a host of potential problems in it's future and now it's extended engine warranty being very close to expiry with very low engine mileage which in this case can potentially be an issue not necessarily a bonus, my perception is the price is a fair bit ambitious still even with the reduction.

I'm in Orlando but work in Seminole and might be interested, but not at that price. PM me and maybe we can talk.. BTW the ad is a bit confusing it says Seminole, but also St. Petersburg which is in the opposite direction so which is it please?

Thank you for replying !! FunRun8 Wow ! What a drive (Orlando) This is truly A MUST SEE CAR !! Looking at RX-8's , most have 100 k plus miles . And the price is more then what we are asking , I haven't seen anything that compares to this car !! Please be careful driving !!! We have a St Pete address .

I would not consider ANY 2004 with 100k miles without docs demonstrating a recent engine change and even still, in fact nothing over 60,000 IMO.. After my post I did a KBB search and yes I was right, it is priced high even at your reduced price, in fact by several thousands even with an "excellent" condition rating so if you're firm (or even very close) then it'd be out of my comfort zone at that price.

I'm not certain why your ad says Seminole then? As that's just up the road in the eastern direction from me, not the west coast where St Pete is.. Oh, I see, you're in Seminole Florida, not Seminole county..

Don't take my word for it.. Based on the info you posted and even giving the benefit of the doubt and adding some high end features you don't mention like multi-disk CD and rear wing they value it at just under $9000..

Kelley Blue Book

Don't know if the link will work or not?
Then without much searching there's these close by maybe you'll see what I mean? Many newer models still close in price especially the 2009.

Sounds like you nothing about the car, also would be better if your post sounded like a real person trying to sell the car not some saleman. Funrun8 is asking questions and yet your next post stilled sounded like a sales pitch. Buyer beware.

I wonder if someone ran the vin and used an obd2 reader on the pcm what the mileage would show up as.. something about this sounds pretty sketchy, and the seller sounds like the many car salesmen i ran into when buying my 8 who had no knowledge about the car and was trying to sell it as quick and for as much as possible.. i get we all need to make a living, but something about this seller and car just isnt right. hopefully for the seller he may be able to enlighten us on the details of the car..

Also, upon googling the phone number and email listed, I've found several posts on other sites to buy, sell, and trade various items. most of the ones listed on craigslist would not show as the posts have been flagged. BUYERS BEWARE. Hopefully buyer will provide more info to clear things up if he intends to sell...

We are selling the RX8 because we purchased another vehicle that suit our needs better. If you were interested in finding out more about the true value of our RX8 and it's present condition, you would have to personally see it, otherwise your opinion is not unlike any of the salespeople we've talked with, who quote the Kelly Blue Book offer, sight unseen. ALL of the many who have seen the car personally have advised us to sell it outright to get the best offer price because of it's excellent condition and low mileage, and some HAVE run the VIN#.

what is cars vin then? are there any issues or check engine lights with the car? original paint? clean or salvage title? any modifications done to the car? just a few basic questions. again not trying to thread crap, but something doesnt seem right..

also, i just did a "kbb.com" value quote of your car, and its $7,675 if everything is essentially in flawless condition. good luck

The mileage on this RX-8 is real ! Verifiable thru dealer and Mazda service center ( Tyrone Square Mazda ) , insurance company , motor vehicle registration, neighbors and God ! It has never been in any accidents , has original everything ! Has not been repainted , has original motor . Was planning on keeping it as a show car since we never drove it. We drove a Honda Insight , I dropped my wife off for work and I had a garage at my work so that car was kept out of Florida sun. The RX-8 had cover on it in the garage to keep the dust and dirt off. We started it to keep the battery charged. No, I'm not a salesman, but thanks for the compliment VIN # JM1FE173840107112 Dealer was going to give us almost as much as we are asking for the car, when we purchased the new truck. Someone's going to get a nice car !!!

My thinking exactly.. All hype and ra ra..Not much info

^Ok so no new info then? If you checked my links and understand I put in it in at excellent condition (the highest possible rating) with the additional features I mentioned and the mileage you mentioned you'd understand why you're not getting a lot of interest at that price if you're firm.. The series one was an experiment in a sense and had pretty significant issues so it's going to need a lot of updating and improving at cost regardless of mileage and previous care and every one here knows that. At least most everyone here.. It also has a potentially expensive engine problem in it's future that may be unavoidable regardless of care too and your's is in good shape and on the cusp of warranty expiration and likely will not see that engine issue before it does expire leaving that cost to the next owner.. Also by it not being driven regularly it has not been blown out and lubricated regularly and this can add to the problems.

BTW I'm pretty certain it wasn't his intent to be complimentary on the salesman comparison.

Regardless, I agree the KBB is a guideline but that's also up to the purchaser and your car is way over their guideline IMO and this alone will keep many like me away from even viewing the car if the price is firm. You keep mentioning "other people" but yet you still have the car and are listing it seemingly every place you can to sell it? Their listed value is the TRUE value and then one goes from there, not what YOU think it to be..

JFYI dealer values, which are based on trade in value, are even lower than a private sale which is also what I used as a guideline doing my input.. Anyway good luck with it, it sounds like a nice car but I'm feeling it needs a pretty significant price adjustment.

I just sent the OP a PM, after he reported his own post. People have legitimate concerns, and I provided the OP advice on how to address those concerns properly.

I'll be keeping an eye on this thread.

Congrats on your sale. Just curious, since you were successful and have it sold, what price did you get for the car ?

Each of my past three RX7's resold for more than KBB said they were worth since I kept them immaculate and in perfect mechanical condition with good compression numbers on both modified and stock FI rotary engines. So whatever you got for your RX8, the only thing that matters in the end is that both the seller and buyer are happy with the deal.
