    Hi oldtimer2
    My daughter has had a red 2008 Mazda Rx8 for 3 years. The past 2 years have been a nightmare!!! She has been stranded countless times. There is not enough room here to tell you everything that has gone wrong, but the major ones are that we had to buy a new engine to the tune of $6,000 about 6 months ago and just this week we had to replace the catalytic converter. The catalytic converter fell apart in the mechanics hands. Today we had to take it back because it is barely running. It feels like the fuel lines have crap in them! We can't even keep it running long enough to sell it. It is a shame because when it's running it is a very fun car. We live in a very small town and there are 2 other red Mazda Rx8s that the local Mazda deal has had to replace there engines. One is in my garage that we are using as a parts car for my daughter's car because the owner couldn't afford the new engine and the other one was at the dealership having just got a new engine. Very Frustrated!!
