Not sure, I would check online to see but I think that all the RX8 have the same issues.

Wow!! I guess I should have done more research before buying. You would think it would be fixed by now....

Nope, no agenda. I've only known personally one RX-8 owner. She works in my office. They moved the car from one end of the drive to the other. Came back out later, the car wouldn't crank. Called the dealer, they said, " bring it in, after you flooded it out we have to change the plugs." She was charged $ 600.00 . Later they discover...........after reading these posts......that there is a segment in the owners manual about the special restarting technique of a Wankel engine after it has flooded out.
So, yes, they are weird. She bought the car from a used dealer, so it's a given that they had no way of knowing about the flood/restart procedure.
