    My 2003 MP5 is now at 183,xxx miles and still going strong, still on original the engine, manual trans & clutch. Purchased it new, used as my daily driver for many years and now it's used as a daily by by sons. Mechanically, it's been very reliable with regular maintenance (always DIY). The body though is another story - rust bubbles by the top of the windshield on the roof, passenger side strut tower, and corner of the hood.

    Only other recent problem I had with this car is electrical - Sometimes it acts as if the battery is completely dead: No dash lights, won't crank and no starter solenoid clicking. Removing & re-seating the main relay & fuel pump relay in the engine bay fuse block will get it to start & run as if nothing was wrong. Contacts for both relays in the fuse block look a bit crispy & corroded though, so I'm thinking a new or better used fuse box will fix this one.

    186k+2003 P5 and going strong. Engine is in great shape, but I did have to replace the trans with a used one last year because of a cracked case. And still looks great with zero rust. Iím keeping this car indefinitely!

    Check your brake fluid level. If it's low it may be that your brake pads are worn and need to be replaced.

    Yea... It won't pass safety anymore but I get it undercoated every year and I'm hoping for another 4-5 years out of it.
    Fingers crossed.

    Looks like an RX8 to me.



    IF it won't pass safety, how do you register it every year? Laws in CA must be different, varies state to state here, but most states you can't renew the tag on your car until you pass the yearly or bi-yearly inspection (though we have no inspections where I am, period).

    It's a 2005 RX-8.
    It's my neighbors, in his backyard... It's a rusted piece of crap.

    As far as safety goes, here in Ontario, your car only has to pass a safety when you sell the car.

    My T-stands punched through my frame rail where the trailing arms connect so I had a shop weld in a piece of metal to reinforce it.
    When I picked up the car I asked him if the car would pass safety and he said no.
    However, if the car was dangerous, I believe he has the legal responsibility to take the car off the road.

    I remember a guy from work years ago, took his car into have his brakes looked at.
    The mechanic said he doesn't care where he gets the work done but if he drives away with the car he's phoning the police.

    I'm sitting at a little over 155,000 freedom miles right now, but the timing belt just went and while I'm in the midst of replacing it, I'm noticing the rot is much worse than I had feared. Wondering if it's even worth replacing at this point, although I absolutely love the car. I was kind of hoping the 2019 3s were out by now for me to take a gander. The new hatch is gorgeous, but I'm disappointed about the removal of the multilink from the rear end. Who knows, maybe I'll do a full blown restoration on my 5? lol

    I've got to hand it to my friends north of the border, you certainly are a dedicated bunch! I wish I had half the ambition some of you had in order to keep these old clunkers running. It's a shame that rot so bad and easily.
