The RX8 is gorgeous and fun to drive and does require plenty of maintenance, and that's been my experience since I bought one, but recently, after my very carefully maintained car started vibrating under the hood, I was stuck with a $3800 bill for repairs. My car only has 55k miles and now, just two weeks after the repair, my check engine light is now on. I dread finding out what the problem is and anyone who is considering an RX9 is a fool, unless you have a lot of discretionary income. I knew it was a rotary and needed regular maintenance, but this is RIDICULOUS. It also has rust issues, too, btw. Sorry, but the 8 is a piece of sh*t.
