    CONFIRMED: RX-8 overated ..mazda offering credit

    I hope Mazda rots in hell and goes bankrupt now,


    "This just in:

    Just got a phone call from budaman, who had just got off a conference call with MNAO. Apparently they are revising the RX-8 horsepower figures: the Manual is being revised down 3.6% to 238hp, and the Auto down 4.5% to 197hp.

    Anyone who has already purchased an RX-8 will be receiving a letter from Mazda offering two alternatives:

    1. Mazda will buy back the car. (He didn't have the full details - they'll be in the letter.)
    2. Mazda will provide free scheduled servicing for the duration of the standard warranty plus a $500 debit card.

    Basically the same deal that they offered after the 2001 Miata was found to be down on power too. Owners will have 30 days to decide.

    Personally, I'm amazed that they repeated such a basic blunder, but I know which of the options I'll be taking (and it ain't "return the car" ).

    (budaman would have posted this himself but his 'net connection is down.)"



    "Current owners and those who take delivery by Tuesday will get a $500 credit and free scheduled maintenance for the warranty period ("approx value $1260")."

    Pathetic. What sad is Mazda says they are off by 8 hp which is bull**** it's more like 30.

    Im with kingleh, I'll wait for the new Mazda RX-7. It'll be worth the wait, if rumors are correct. (Nothing but all-out handling).

    The RX-8 is still and awesome car. The RX-8 turbo will be even better. Why can't Mazda meet projected HP levels? I don't get it.

    Somebody needs to start coughing up links about this "new" RX-7. I have heard nothing about it!

    I'm with you on that one. At the very least, they can stop denying everyone warranty work on their oh so crappy tranny that they've built.

    I doubt the rx-7 is coming out any time soon... The free service/buy back is going to cost mazda out the ass!!! Just like the miata.
