purchases 2004 mazda rx8
Submitted by ljpiscat on Thursday, April 15, 2010 - 1:39am

I just purchases a 2004 mazda rx8 mazda speed edition april 13 2010 and its already at the dealer with a sputtering problem.When i go to accelerate past 1/4 throttle the car just sputters.I have always been a nissan guy so im new to rotary engines.Any feedback for this problem or any tips about this car would be greatly appreciated.I also noticed that the owners manual says 91 octane ONLY of course i didnt read the manual til iu got home after putting 93 octane in it could this be a reason for the problem?

All I can say is GOOD LUCK! We bought our daughter an 04 RX8 and so far have dumped $3k in it on all the engine problems..and now we are having electrical problems....The previous owner really got us good by selling us GARBAGE....Please let me know if you have any luck with yours.
