I\'m more of a RX7 fanatic (since 2004) but recently I noticed a RX8 near me which might be for sale soon. As it has been sitting in thesame place I got in contact with the owner. He told me he got it from a dealer and drove it for only 60km\'s.
After a short drive he put it away and the enxt time she wouldn\'t start any more.
Have done a quick search on here and ignition coils seem to be an issue that pops up many times, apparently the starter motor is too.
Any other issues that you could point out?
OWner says he needs a new engine, but considering that the car was running fine upto this point and he probably didn\'t abuse it on his first drive, I guess it might be a different, faster to solve, issue.
Compression issues would be sooner to point out as the engine would be harder and harder to start over certain period of time. Not something which occurs al of a sudden.
