If you have decided that an RX-8 would be the car that is right for you, here is a list of things to look for and/or ask questions about. Private sellers are more likely to know the answers, dealers less likely.
Note: These are in ADDITION to any questions that you should ask of any car you are thinking about buying, such as brake life, tire tread, paint, body, damage, accident history, etc... regardless of year, make, or model. These are RX-8 specific questions only.
Any item with a blue Mazda next to it can be answered by calling Mazda if the seller doesn't know, (or you think they are making it up / lying)
Any item with an orange year (like 2004) next to it means that the question applies for that year.
If anything really concerns you, head over to RX8Club.com to ask the question, or the Feedback and Support section of this website to ask the author.
