U.S.A.:Original RX-8 horsepower ratings wrong so Mazda offers rebate


If you’re an RX-8 enthusiast who can put up with Mazda’s 1.3-liter twin-rotary engine not producing the horsepower as originally promised, it’s worth it to Mazda to keep you happy.
Mazda officials say after modifying the car’s powertrain control module to meet required federal emissions standards, the RX-8 with manual transmission is producing 238 hp, down from the promised 247 hp, while the automatic- trans model is down 10 hp to 197 hp. Mazda says the drop in power doesn’t affect the car’s 0-to-60-mph times, however.

To make amends with some 3000 RX-8 buyers who purchased the car or placed an order by Aug. 26, Mazda will provide a $500 debit card and free maintenance for four years or 50,000 miles. Still unhappy? Mazda will discuss repurchasing your car. Mazda’s offer is good until Oct. 1.

My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.

My next Ford.....
