WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR: MAZDA RX-8

The lack of a turbocharger meant that the RX-8 was driven hard out of necessity thanks to the way the rotary engine makes its power.

So, a health-check at a rotary specialist is a good idea as these engines, while fabulously entertaining to use, can wear quickly internally.

If that has happened, you might notice that the car is down on power, doesn't want to rev cleanly or is difficult to start from cold. All these symptoms suggest a rebuild in the not too distant future.

The rotary is also hard on spark plugs and leads and these need to be in tip-top condition for a happy car.

The engine is known to be a bit of an oil-burner, too (it's the way it works) so you need to check the dipstick at regular intervals.

And make sure the seller knows about the engine's dislike for being driven hard or shut off without being fully warmed up. A switched-on previous owner is essential for the RX-8.
