This is my 2005 6-speed Mazda Rx8.  The engine is not working and I'm looking to sell it as is. It tries to turn over but won't fire up. Engine has 40K on it. I baby it most of the time to stretch my gas out. It has a clean Title with lots of extras:
Urethane Mazda Speed Body kit
Tein struts and springs
AIM Cold air intake with a K&N filter
Throttle Body Spacer
Strut bar
Mazda Speed Underdrive Pulley kit
Header
Greddy Exhaust
Tinted Windows
Tires have good tread
Recently put new plugs, coil packs, wires, and O2 sensors.

 

Please serious bidders only.  I can't even believe I have to say this but DO NOT bid if you are not going to follow through.

 

The rear of the car does have minor hail damage, mainly on the trunk but the body looks good.  Not 100% on why it won't start but I suspect a bad catalytic converter caused it to shut down and would be a fairly easy fix but I cannot be sure as I do not have time to mess with it.  It is sold as is.  The air bag in the passenger seat was blown in a previous wreck where the car slid in the rain into a mailbox. A new passenger door was used in the repair.

Fiat reconsidering Mazda-based Alfa Romeo roadster? [w/poll]

Mon, 03 Mar 2014 10:00:00 EST

Alfa giveth and Alfa taketh away. With apologies to Job (he has gone through a lot, after all), that's how things are looking at the Italian automaker - whether it's the promise of new products or its impending return to the North American market. But it's especially true when it comes to new roadsters.
While Alfa Romeo is expected to unveil the 4C Spider at the Geneva Motor Show this week, reports are now suggesting that its other roadster project is being called into question. That project is a joint venture between Fiat and Mazda, which was set to produce a version of its next MX-5 Miata as an Alfa Romeo, and was even changing the design to accommodate Alfa's requirements.
Now it appears, however, that the whole project in doubt. The problem seems to stem from Sergio Marchionne's pronouncements that, as long as he's in charge, there won't be an Alfa Romeo built outside of Italy.

Mazda Hazumi Concept previews next Mazda2 in Geneva [w/videos]

Tue, 04 Mar 2014 15:40:00 EST

The official photos of Mazda's Hazumi concept leaked out yesterday, but we have finally gotten to see it in real life at the Geneva Motor Show. Our view is that its Kodo lines looks as good on the diminutive car's sheet metal as they did in photos.
The Hazumi was designed to appear to be bursting with energy, and it seems to deliver. While Mazda refuses to actually say that this is the concept for the next Mazda2, it makes it clear that the little hatchback is "foreshadowing Mazda's next-generation subcompact car." We can all read between the lines.
Hazumi also introduces the new Skyactiv-D 1.5-liter diesel engine but details about it are scant at the moment. The specs for the engine are still unannounced, but the company promises that it is both very efficient and has lots of torque for its size. Mazda is also promising that its Mazda Connect infotainment system will be available in the car too. Scroll down for the brief press release a brace of videos that celebrate the tiny concept's arrival.

Mazda3, CX-5 earn IIHS Top Safety Picks

Thu, 17 Jan 2013 10:01:00 EST

Mazda technologies like SkyActiv-Body and SkyActiv-Chassis, plus ultra-high-tensile steel, six airbags, "crusable" brake and accelerator pedal assembly and collapsible steering column have helped the 2013 Mazda3 and 2014 Mazda CX-5 win Top Safety Pick laurels from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). It's the second year in a row for the Mazda3.
The accolade is earned by receiving "Good" marks for frontal moderate overlap crashes, side and rear impact crashes, and tests of roof strength. Remember, the small overlap test that the IIHS commenced in August 2012 has lately tripped up some makers who have excellent safety reputations.
The Mazda3 and CX-5 join offerings like the Dodge Dart, Hyundai Elantra, Mitsubishi Outlander Sport and Subaru Forester among the 117 vehicles so far declared Top Safety Picks - which is different than the 13 named Top Safety Picks+, mind you - for this year. Have a read of the press release below for more information.
