Nah, the Mazda RX8 is the best combo, of luxury, performance, and gas mileage.

But it's a Mazda though. I don't know about how luxurious they are but I'm more looking for reliability too. Performance wise, the RX-8 are ok. I can't do a search now because I'm downloading like 6 movies right now. Everything else is crawling if I do a search. I don't know how much the RX-8 cost either. That's what I wanted to look up. Plus, the insurance would be high because it's a sports car.

There are many reasons why I did not choose the RX-8. Just the Mazda name alone is enough for me not to buy their cars. I'm a Toyota person because of their legendary reliability, quality service, and excellent management (TQM). I would even consider buying a Scion tC before I would jump on a Mazda RX-8 or even their Mazda 3 hatchback. Get a stock tC and spend another 2-3 grand to get their supercharger. Get that thing up to 200+ HP.

My sister called me a few month back and wanted my recommendation for a Mazda 6. OMG, I told her no. So she got a BMW 330xi, lol. Talk about an upgrade.

I agree. I think Lexus makes very nice cars, and they're a pretty good value. They're reliable, packed with features, perform well and are reliable.

Mazda's just don't stand out to me. Their RX-7 is legendary, but they're RX-8 is just so-so or ehhhh at the worse compared to the RX-7.

Besides the Lexus, you also know what I love about the dealership? They have free continental breakfast, lol. Eggs, sausage, toast, etc. All the juice you can drink, hot chocolate, sodas, danishes, etc., etc. Plus, you get free rental (loaner) cars when your car is in the shop. Your pick of any Lexus (upon availability of course). I'm going to get the LS if I can next. They have XM radio in their lounge, wireless internet all over their building, and they even have a Subway, Starbucks in the next building down!!!!

The car price are a steep but not as steep as the Mercedes or BMW dealers. Lexus is Japanese so the cost is much lower. Mine only cost $29,400 for the IS. Not bad. Most Toyota Camrys are around $26-27000 for a loaded car.

Infiniti's are right up there with Lexus too but I feel the quality of Lexus overshadows the Infiniti/Nissan.

As far as my age goes, that's off a bit.

It seems the RX8 has excellent write-ups though, unfortunately the Google links are all British sites so I don't know if this link will work for you, but there is a link there that will take you to where you want.
